New to IRC (Internet Relay Chat) Client Programs?

If you experience any problems connecting via the Java applets we have available, or would rather just prefer to connect to the depression chat rooms using a standalone program, you can do so by following these three steps (for Windows users only):

  • Step One: Download and install a free IRC client program (we recommend HydraIRC). Click Here to download this application.

  • Step Two: Install and run the client, creating an Identity by following the instructions within the application. Once you have successfully produced an Identity close HydraIRC and follow step three.

  • Step Three: Simply Click Here to enter the main chat room, paying attention to any firewalls you might have installed on your system.

For subsequent visits to the depression chat rooms just follow step three.

If the third step fails to connect you, then load HydraIRC  and type in the main window:

/server irc.quakenet.org:6667

/join #depression
