This isn't real-time chat, it's a forum. You don't need to keep posting to get people to respond, you just need a little patience.

Anyway, OpenSSL has nothing to do with hyperlinking. A hyperlink is a special peice of text which a program such as a web browser responds to which you can click to make it 'take' you to another part of the net. For example: this is a hyperlink. The OpenSSL DLLs are nothing to do with that, they are for creating secure connections to servers to prevent anyone from being able to intercept and read communications between you and the IRC server you're connected to.

From whatsnew.txt:
- Support for <a href="http://www.mirc.co.uk/ssl.html">SSL</a> has been added. You'll have to download some DLL's of OpenSSL 0.9.7c separately from mIRC and place them in the mIRC folder for this to work. mIRC will load the dll's automatically if it finds them, after which you can initiate a secure connection to an SSL capable IRC server. SSL settings can be found in the Connect/Options dialog, and are visible only when openssl dlls are loaded.

Damn people chill out, whats with the attitude?

I wasnt posting to get anyone to post, I was posting updates to my progess !

You could be thankfull actually did some groundwork for people who might have the same problem!

I read the whatsnew txt file Para, I read it 5 times, then I had to go look for the DLL's finally found them, loaded them, got the button installed, and thats where I got stuck.

Again I wasnt posting out of impatience, I was posting my progress.

um, sorry kupotek, but i'm a lil confuzzled about what you are asking confused

hyperlinking doesnt have anything to do with SSL, but perhaps you were asking where the link is with info for it on our website? http://www.mirc.co.uk/ssl.html gives info and one place to get the files needed

there is a list of some servers there that you can use to try SSL out (since you are seeing the option for it, then it sounds like they are loaded just fine)

my apologies if i've misunderstood
