Automatically Connect To A Server

At present DMDirc does not support server lists, which will provide an easy way to remember and automatically connect to a server. You can, however, create an action which will automatically connect to your favourite servers when you open DMDirc:

  1. On the menu bar select “Settings”
  2. Select “Actions manager”
  3. The actions manager dialog will open
  4. Select an existing group from left hand side list (Not “aliases” or “performs” as these are special groups), or click “Add” on the left hand side to create a new one
  5. Click on the “Add” button on the right hand side
  6. The action editor dialog will open
  7. Enter a name for the action
  8. Select “Client Opened” in the triggers drop down menu
  9. Click Add
  10. In the Response section type the following /newserver <host[:port]> [password] for each server you wish to connect to (you can prepend the port with a '+' for SSL-Enabled servers), to connect to multiple servers add multiple /newserver commands, one per line
  11. Click OK on the action editor
  12. Click OK on the actions manager

DMDirc will now automatically execute the /newserver commands when it opens, which will automatically connect you to your servers.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
