<h1>IRC Channel Auto-Connection with Irssi</h1>
<p>This tutorial explains how to configure the
<a href="http://irssi.org/">Irssi ("the client of the future")</a>
IRC client to automatically connect to one or more channels when run.</p>
<ol>
<li>Invoke Irssi from the shell:
<pre><samp>$ irssi</samp></pre></li>
<li>After Irssi starts, enter the following commands:
<pre><samp>
/network add sdf
/server add -auto -network sdf irc.sdf.org
/channel add -auto #sdf sdf
</samp></pre>
(You may add other channels<a href="#fn1"><sup>1</sup></a>. Channel <code>#helpdesk</code> is added automatically.)</li>
<li>Quit Irssi:
<pre><samp>/quit</samp></pre></li>
<li>Invoke Irssi again:
<pre><samp>$ irssi</samp></pre>
(Irssi runs and automatically connects to the channels you defined in 2.)</li>
<li>Select the channel you want to see first when Irssi starts by cycling through the channel windows (<code>Ctrl-n</code>,
<code>Ctrl-p</code>).</li>
<li>Save the Irssi channel window configuration:</li>
<pre><samp>/layout save</samp></pre></li>
</ol>
<p>If you experience trouble, it may help to reset your Irssi configuration by deleting or renaming the
file <code>~/.irssi/config</code>.</p>
