Title: Official Public IRC Channel!
Post by: Malachai on February 01, 2013, 08:12:48 PM
Hello All,
Well its official we have a IRC channel now. After working on it and configuring for our protection the channel is open now.  All the information is below. 

Network - irc.freenode.net



/join #top_hat_sec


Some rules for the channel.

1.   Respect — don't engage in racism or hate speech. People are entitled to different opinions.
2.   Appropriate — think before you type, is your comment appropriate? Is it possible someone may misinterpret what you're saying in jest as hateful speech?

I guess that’s it for now.

Network - irc.freenode.net

Make sure to visit http://freenode.net/faq.shtml Look for the User Registration Section. Register a username w/ NickServ by following the instructions. Also visit the Freenode channel and ask an Op of that channel RESPECTFULLY to "Cloak" your username after it has been registered. This will hide your IP from everyone. In IRC, your IP is visible to everyone when you join a channel or when they perform a whois on you. Having your IP visible to individuals, as we should know, is very unsafe and can be used against you for attacks. This step is VERY important! As added protection, if you do not have a proxy or VPN, you can connect via Tor. The instructions on how to do this are also at the above link. Take care & always take the precautions to protect yourself!  --THR4SH3R

Channel - type /join #top_hat_sec

Channel Operators: Malachai, em3rency, THR4SH3R

Everyone is welcome! join up!

You should always check with an admin before undertaking ANYTHING in the name of TopHatSec...


Malachai has approval from above and has taken the time to be sure that the security is up to R4v3ns standard ...

How do i connect to this IRC Channel? Do i need to download a program or is it a website? (I tried to go to Irc.freenode.net and it failed).

@ k1v... You can install a IRC client like XChat. Download and install this program. Then visit http://freenode.net/faq.shtml for instructions on how to register a username for yourself. This site will also give you other info on how to complete a variety of tasks. After you have done this, and you still cannot figure it out. Post back and we will help you accomplish this.

Easy access for people visiting the forums is probably a factor. Thats why I like the IRC chat method on the BackBox site.

Personally I have never used IRC ... I know right... thats why I like the nice quick and easy access they have ;)

It would be great to implement something like that. get on it TAPE ;)

Post by: TAPE on February 08, 2013, 03:05:12 PM
Its a good way to get chat going on a site isnt it.
Maybe ZEROF would be able to shed some light on what is required for it. Might hit him up on that.
Would be great if that could be integrated to the current channel.

make something like the ones on xiaopan or backbox. would be really great, since im only mostly on the forums. have never opened up irc ever since 2007 or so. hahaha. maybe someday when i feel like becoming a botmaster, but that'll not be soon. hahaha

Now I am going to sound like a tool here ...


But I have literally never used IRC although I know in the community it is the thing to use.. *shameful face*

I downloaded MiRC a while ago and deleted it immediately when it mentioned trial only, I like freeware.

Is there a kind soul out there that would consider making a decent tut on how to start and setup an
IRC program ?




Help is needed by this n00b ;)

Hey man! I'm in the same case as you. Lol, but I did once use mIRC. Just never touched it recently, and is it really shareware now?? Dang, I think it was free back then, or maybe I was on a trial as well. Heh, cares. Anyway, if anyone can recommend something that you guys also use, that'd be nice. I'm sure there a few botmasters in here. Looking at you....(dont think I have to mention names, :D) hahahaha.

I went with KvIRC mate, really good and simple to use, plus it's free for Windows unlike Xchat.

I used to use mIRC years ago but I refuse to pay for it now.  These days (on OSX, Linux and Windows) I use Xchat. (or Xchat2 on Windows, Xchat Azure on Mac).

[Like someone mentioned above there's a pay version of xchat but if you search xchat2 there's also a free one out there.]

It's pretty simple to set up.  I can put together a tutorial for whatever OS you're using but it's not a lot of work to get it going.


Download
Choose a Nick
connect to freenode (as that's the server our channel is on)
then once you're connected type in the text input box "/join #top_hat_sec"


There's a lot more to it if you want to get in depth like registering your nick with /nickserv so that someone can't use your nick.  Some channels require a registered nick also (#asterisk is one).  But the above is really all you need to get started.



Cheers

It does look pretty dead. I'll stay in anyway though. Easy enough to have it running in a separate desktop. Besides, if enough people start the IRC trend....  ;)
