Arrow Live IRC Stocks Chat

Note: If you already have an IRC client installed see below for the server details or simply click this link: irc://irc.stockrants.com/stockrants.

Also: If you are too lazy too install an IRC client we have a nicely integrated web client here on our live stock chat page.

We now have a dedicated IRC (Internet Relay Chat) server featuring real time stock quotes and other goodies. IRC is an incredibly robust and secure real time chat medium which includes private messages, file transfers, and pretty much anything else you could imagine. It's very easy and free to use, so you should be up and chatting with real investors in no time.

How do I Login?

Okay logging into IRC is very simple. All you need is an IRC client program to interface with our server. The IRC client is very lightweight and they are mostly free and contain no lame adware.

PC Users: mIRC.
Mac: Colloquay or X-Chat.
iPhone: Colloquay (Apps Store)

Once you download and install a client you will just need to connect to our server. The screenshots below are for mIRC but most clients will be very similar to this.

After it is installed, run mIRC. You will get a popup saying
it is an unregistered version. Just click anywhere on the box to remove it.

When you run mIRC you should see the screen below:



Click Add and a box will popup allowing you to add our server details:



Description: StockRants IRC
IRC Server: irc.stockrants.com
Port: 6667
Group: Stocks
Note: there is no need to enter any info in the password box.

After you have done that click on the Add button.

You should now be back at the same screen as image 1 above but now in the
IRC servers it will say Stocks, irc.stockrants.com. Click 'Connect to IRC Server'.



Once connected you can type the following into the console window to join our channel:

Code:
/join #stockrants
That's pretty much it!

I will be testing this out today with the staff, please stop in and say hello!

Just a heads up that we launched the stock chat page today. Thanks to Gazd, ychamb, pat and others for their help in there. If you had problems connecting to our live chat before you should give the new page a look.
