Worldwide eComStation IRC network launched!

May 28, 2002 by Roderick Klein

Announcement of the worldwide eComStation IRC network

First of all I want to give a BIG thanks and a round of applause to Massimo Sangriso from Italy who came up with the idea to build up the IRC network for eCS. He has invested much time in building the network.

The network has been put up so eCS/OS/2 users can have a chat. Maybe drop a question if they can't solve a problem. Or developers who want to talk about a problem and want to try and get a fast answer.....

In the last couple of months there has been worked hard on the
eComStation IRC network. There are currently 14 IRC servers in the network active. The network will continue to be expanded.

You can get an IRC client from hobbes http://hobbes.nmsu.edu. My personal favorite (maybe not the best around), is EZIRC. Which has some easy features. This and other clients can be found at Judy's Warped World IRC page:

http://www.gt-online.com/~bri/irc_clients.html

If you don't want to dive into an IRC client gotowww.ecomstation.com and click on "support/FAQ for eCS". Choose for "Live eCS Chat" and click on "open chat window". Choose your nickname and connect.

The direct URL is:

Please note if your browser crashes it could be that you are running a wrong version of Java (1.1.8 or 1.3 should work) or something is wrong with the configuration. The Java applet has been succesfully tested with Netscape 4.61 for OS/2, Opera for OS/2, Warpzilla for OS/2 and the IBM Browser for OS/2.
If you don't have an OS/2 box handy and you want to connect, it also has been tested with Netscape 6.2 and Internet Explorer 5.5 under Windows 2000.

You can however via the webinterface only connect to the default eCS channel.
If you want to reach other channels on the network, you will need to download an IRC client and connect to one of the servers directly.

For the OS/2 advocates who would like to know. All servers in the network so far are OS/2 /eCS machines. Possibly some Linux boxes will join in the future....
But our intention is to keep it mainly running on OS/2 of course...

Enjoy!

Roderick Klein, Mensys
