  • Scroll through the preset connections to find the server you want, or select one to reconfigure;
  • Double-click the connection you want to configure, or select it and click the Edit... button.

2Connection Preferences windowThe Connection Preferences window will appear:
  • Enter a Nickname - the name you want to be known by when chatting;
  • Enter a Username - optional. This name will be displayed along with your site address in the User List window;
  • Enter your Real name - also optional. You could set this to your email address.

3If you need to configure a server not in the connection list, do this step; otherwise go to step 4:
  • Click the white Select... button, and the Server list window will appear: Server List
  • Scroll through the list and choose the server that is geographically nearest to you on the network you require. Click Select to accept it.
