How to connect to Neverendless IRC with ViRC
ViRC, or Visual IRC, is an IRC chat client used to connect to IRC servers. More information about the client can be found on the ViRC website.

Step 1: Download and install
First, you are going to need to get ViRC if you do not already have it. You can download it from this link. Once the download has completed, run the downloaded file ("virc200.exe").

Once ViRC has been installed, remove the checkmark on the "Launch Visual IRC" option and click "Finish". Then download the patch file from here. Once the patch has been downloaded, extract the contents of the ZIP into the folder where you installed ViRC.

The patch fixes a security hole in the client. Failure to patch will leave your computer at risk.

Step 2: Getting set up

Run ViRC from the icon on your desktop. If this is your first time running ViRC a dialog box will display asking how you want to set up your client. Select 'I'm new to IRC and I want detailed help.' and click 'Ok'.

Then follow the instructions in the setup wizard.

You will be able to change these settings later from the configuration screen if you need to.

Once you have reached the end of the setup wizard go ahead and click finish.

Step 3: Connecting

Now you should be looking at an empty ViRC window. Click the 'Start' button in the upper left corner of the window. A new server window will appear.

In the server window, find the text box on the toolbar at the top of the window.

Make sure the text box displays either 'irc.neverendless-wow.com' or 'irc.neverendless-wow.com:6667'. If it does not, type in 'irc.neverendless-wow.com'. Click on the Connect icon in the upper left corner, it looks like two computers with a checkmark.

Alternatively, you can type '/server irc.neverendless-wow.com' into the text bar at the bottom of the window to instantly connect.

Upon connecting you will automatically join the main chat channel: #neverendless-wow. Feel free to join the conversation or just lurk for a bit. Happy chatting!
