* Obtain an account on
cs1 (ask dave), 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 [http:// en. wikipedia. org/ wiki/PuTTY PuTTY (Windows)]. If you use Linux or any Unix based operating system you likely already have ssh installed.* Once you've connected to cs1 launch '''irssi''' within a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Screen '''screen'''] session. You can do this by typing:
''screen will flash and go back to the default prompt. You are now inside screen''
* 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,
type: /connect irc.mozilla.org
* Once you're connected type
:* 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.
