connect_command

Synopsis:

connect <new server> [[<port>] <existing server>]

Description:

This command is used to connect servers to the irc network. It must be given at least one argument, the name of a remote server to connect to the network. If only one server is given, it is connected to the client's server on the default port. Alternately, a specific server and port may be specified.

Wildcards are permitted in the server names, if they are unambiguous.

Examples:

To connect irc.foo.com to your current server:

    /connect irc.foo.com

To connect irc.foo.com with irc.bar.com on port 31337 of irc.bar.com:

    /connect irc.foo.com 31337 irc.bar.com

Restrictions:

This command is limited to irc operators, for reasons that should be obvious. Further, both servers must have appropriate C: and N: lines in their configuration to allow the connection.
