== Instructions ==
* Obtain an account on cs1 (ask dave)zenit, or install irssi on another computer that isn't rebooted (NOTE: many Seneca servers are rebooted frequently).* Use ssh to connect to cs1, for example zenit. On Windows try a client such as [ PuTTY (Windows)]. If you use Linux or any Unix based operating system you likely will already have ssh installed.* Once you've connected to cs1 zenit, launch '''irssi''' within a [ '''screen'''] session. You can do this by typing:
$ screen
''screen will flash and go back to the default prompt. You are now inside screen''
$ irssi
* Type "irssi" in the new bash prompt in order to launch ''IRSSI'', the irc application. As a side note, if you want to exit a ''screen'' session just type "exit" in the bash prompt to return to the main prompt where you originally launched ''screen'' from.
* In the ''IRSSI'' prompt, typeconnect to a server: <code>/connect</code>or <code>/connect</code>
* Once you're connected type
<code>/j join #seneca</code>* You can join multiple servers and channels by repeating the /connect and /join commands, above* The screen software lets you disconnect from and reconnect to the Irssi software.
:* If you would like to return back to the bash prompt without exiting ''IRSSI'' hit "ctrl+a" then "ctrl+d"
:* If you would like to return to ''IRSSI'' type "screen -raAd" in the bash prompt.
