How to use chat on android device?

Postby Elwing » Wed Feb 01, 2012 3:43 pm

Hello folks! Auntie El got a new toy, but is still learning how to use it. Maybe somebody here can help...I can't live without you all for a split second, so I got a slightly-smartish phone to take advantage of free wifi networks. Mostly so I can keep in touch when abroad (which is often). The phone I got runs Android gingerbread.
I have been told android runs java, but I'm still looking into that. Does anyone know if there are aps that I download that work with the chat we use? I'm a bit green in all this...
Thanks for the help!

Android devices run Java *kind of*. It would be more correct to say they run Android applications. You should be able to access chat with any Android IRC client; I think Slarti's had success using AndChat; just search the Market for AndChat or pname:net.andchat.

Yep, I use AndChat and it's not bad at all! It's a lot like a mini version of Trillian, and I even figured out the settings by looking at my Trill.

I got andchat...But unfortunately the old threads with the settings form Trillian and similar were lost in the move :(

I have tried a few things but I'm stumped. I hope somebody can help me. I have tried chat.nightscrawlers.com and port 9990, but that's not enough information, nickserv needs a username and password, and do not know the right commands.
It appears all the old technical support threads have been lost. Is there any way to recover these?

I use port 6000, but other than that I don't have much else to offer.

It is indeed port 6000. And I'm absolutely going to recover old posts; if I have time tonight, I'll do it tonight, but it may have to wait until the weekend.

That's ok, I'm not in a hurry, but I hope I can solve this before the end of the month...Thanks!
*edit* I think I worked out my problems. Port was indeed 6000, and I even got an automatic channel join. I can now travel in good company!
