#3616305 Simple IRC Chat

Posted by David Baldwin on Fri Oct 21, 2016 11:45 PM

Hi did you know you can dial into irc.atarinet.com chat room without having to use tcp/ip terminal programs stuff

I found out all I did was use the Telnet BBS Server on my old Windows PC and Null Modem to the Atari.

And on my Atari 520STe all I use is Standard VT100 terminals like Storm or Flash and you can just login

like atdt irc.atarinet.com:800 and I log strait in like a BBS login.

I think if you have Atari XE or 800 you can IRC chat with ICE-T in VT100 mode any vt100 terminals

on 8bit Computers.
