 You'll also need to set your Real name and your Nick name. Your "​Real"​ name (or User name) will only be displayed when someone inspects you with the ''/​whois''​ command, and doesn'​t actually need to be your name. Your Nick is your handle. You need a handle, man. You don't have an identity until you have a handle(([[http://​www.imdb.com/​title/​tt0113243/?​ref_=ttqt_qt_tt]]))!

 The department hosts an [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​BNC_%28software%29#​IRC|IRC Bouncer]] (ZNC) at [[https://​znc.cs.nmt.edu]]. An IRC bouncer can keep you logged on to an IRC server even when your computer is off, or your client is closed. You connect to the bouncer in the same way that you would connect to IRC normally, but first you have to set yourself up on the ZNC server. The department hosts an [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​BNC_%28software%29#​IRC|IRC Bouncer]] (ZNC) at [[https://​znc.cs.nmt.edu]].

-First, you can [[https://​znc.cs.nmt.edu|login to the department ZNC server]] with your CS credentials. Click **Your Settings** in the sidebar to the right. The first thing you'll see is the **Authentication** form. You can use that form to change your password to anything you want. If you're security conscious, you should be aware that some IRC clients store your network password in plaintext, so you might prefer to use something other than your CS credentials.The Allowed IPs field should normally just be set to ''​*'',​ unless there'​s some reason you need to restrict where you're using the bouncer from .+First, you can [[https://​znc.cs.nmt.edu|login to the department ZNC server]] with your CS credentials.

-When you're happy with your authentication settings, move to the **IRC Information** form. Fill out the ''​Nickname''​ and ''​Alt. Nickname''​ fields with whatever ​name you want to go by on the network. Leave the Ident and ''​StatusPrefix''​ fields as they are. You can also fill out the ''​RealName''​ field to allow people to more easily identify you, and the ''​QuitMessage''​ field to change the message displayed when you leave the server, but these fields are not strictly necessary.+When you're happy with your authentication settings, move to the **IRC Information** form.

 Now, move to the **Networks** menu. This is how you actually set up the bouncer to log you in to the IRC servers you would like to connect to. The CS IRC server and freenode should be added here by default. You can add more networks here later. For now, click "​Edit"​ next to the ''​NMTCS''​ entry. On the next page, scroll down to **Channels**. This menu allows you to set the channels on the network that you will join automatically. If you need to add a channel to this list, click ''​Add'',​ and on the next page, fill in the channel name, i.e., ''#​cramer'',​ ''#​sysadmin'',​ ''#​ktek'',​ etc. Click ''​Add channel and return''​ after each. Now, move to the **Networks** menu.
