Whatbox has a general purpose IRC channel that can be used for questions, concerns and chat. Please use your Whatbox nick name if you require assistance. If you have asked a question and not received support, please open a support ticket.
|TLS / SSL||Yes|
Port 7000 (with TLS/SSL) is available for people unable to connect on port 6697 for any reason.
The quickest and easiest way to join may be to use Mibbit, a web based client.
Using a Client
The first step is to install an IRC client such as HexChat, mIRC, or Colloquy. Use the interface provided with the client to add the server, or use these standard commands:
HexChat, mIRC, Textual
/server irc.whatbox.ca +6697 /join #whatbox
/sslserver irc.whatbox.ca 6697 /join #whatbox
/server -s irc.whatbox.ca 6697 /join #whatbox
/server connect -tls -tls_verify irc.whatbox.ca 6697 /join #whatbox
Our IRC bot, Skynet, has several available commands. Learn more about them here.
