Chat Session

The IRC (Internet Relay Chat) software mIRC is already installed on the PC's in the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library Computer and Media Lab. To start a chat session:

  1. Find the mIRC chat software in the Netscape & Internet folder from the Microsoft Office Toolbar.
  2. Open the mIRC folder and then double- click on the mIRC program icon to run mIRC.
  3. When the "mIRC Set-up" dialog box appears, choose any server and select "Connect".
  4. Note:  Make sure to fill in the boxes for "Real Name", "E-Mail", "Nickname", and "Alternate" .
    (note: you do not need to use your real name(s); you can also use a nickname in place of your e-mail address.
  5. In the "mIRC Channels" dialog box that appears next, type "utahrei" in the box that asks "Enter name of channel to join" or select "utahrei" from the scrolling list.
  6. You are now ready for a virtual question and answer session!

Please ask for assistance at the Computer and Media Desk should you need any additional help with mIRC.
