Cantr Chat Channel
The Cantr Chat Channel is an Internet-Relay-Chat (IRC) Channel. A Java applet from the Cantr site is available here.
Alternatively, there are many IRC clients available for download which offer more functionality / accessibility - both free and commercial (see below)
For those new to IRC, check Cantr Chat Channel#Introduction to IRC
The set-up details for each client do differ, but they will all need you to input the following information:
- Server: irc.tobug.net
- Port: 6667
- Channel: #cantr
Clicking here may also work if your client is set up with your browser.
You will also need to set your firewall to allow the client to connect. If you can't get connected, please contact the Communications Department
There are both commercial clients (such as the popular mIRC) and open-source / freeware clients.
Some suggested free/open-source clients
- Opera Free web browser with in-built IRC client
- ChatZilla(built into Mozilla and available as an extension for Firefox)
- XChat free for Unix, shareware for Windows
- Pidgin Free software for IRC as well as yahoo, AiM, MSN etc (Previously known as Gaim)
See the Wikipedia article on IRC clients for more information.
