Title: Possibilities with nicks?
Post by: chadox on October 12, 2004, 07:31:23 AM
When I use IceChat I am only

connected to 1 network - gamesurge.

I would like to be able to use different nick names for different channels.  I

automatically connect to about 5 or 6 channels... is there a way for me to configure two different nick names - depending on

which channel I'm in?

I tried making two different server connections to gamesurge... I wasn't too happy with this

option.  It didn't quite work as well as I had hoped.

Each connection to an IRC server only allows you to have 1

Nickname. This is not a limitation of IceChat, but the way IRC Servers are made.

The only choice you have is to make

multiple connections to the server, and use different nicknames. But be warned, some Servers dont like you connecting this

way, they consider it running "clones".
