Did you download mIRC from www.mirc.com
Are you using v6.12?
Are there any write restrictions on your machine that would prevent mirc.ini from being updated or created?
Try typing /identd on
before you type /server -m
. In the new server window, type /identd
to see that it's on. Also type //echo -a $readini($mircini,ident,active)
and post the results.
Good luck, god speed, may the force be with you, live long and prosper, exit--stage right.
