There are different ways you can connect to ScoutLink. If you already have an IRC-Client or you want to install one then just enter the data provided, and connect. If you do not know how to install an IRC-Client or how to enter the data just look at our configure mIRC page.
If you think that all is to complicated then just start with one of our webchats.
Here is the info you need for your IRC-Client
Here is an example how it could look on mIRC.
There are a lot of servers, please choose one near to your location. The following list shows you the names of servers near to you. Using one of them always connects you to a server in your region. If you do not know what to choose just take chat.scoutlink.net. Port is always 6667
|chat.scoutlink.net||Connects you to a random server|
|chat.eu.scoutlink.net||Use this if you are somewhere in Europe|
|chat.nl.scoutlink.net||Use this if you are from The Netherlands|
|chat.de.scoutlink.net||Use this if you are from Germany|
All of our servers have SSL enabled. Using SSL encrypts your connection to the server, so that no one between you and the server could read the data you are sending. Our port for secure IRC is 6697. All Servers support ssl.
You have to tell your client that it trusts the SSL certificate, you also have to tell the client that it should use SSL. See the "configure client" section for more details. For mIRC you have to enter the port as "+6697".
ScoutLink is more than just text based chatting via IRC. We also offer a TeamSpeak Server and we hope to include other services in the future.
Information on how to setup your TeamSpeak client, so that you can talk to others, can be found at our TeamSpeak page.
