    Kazaa and Mirc

    Hi,

    I have been using Kazaa for a long time now and have no complaint against it. However, the only difficulty arises when one tries to download any desi matteial for .g. bollywood songs or movies, and that one cant find at all...

    Although I've been recommended my my frineds to use this other platform called MiRC for such purposes, but the problem for me is that I've been put oof by the fact that MiRc is too complicated to use and one also has to know lots of coding and stuff... is that true or justa a rumor?

    Should this be true then can anyone give me a basich know-how so thatI can get started....

    tahnx looking forward to your cooperation

    Nothing complicated about MIRC. Download the program, connect to a server, and join a channel which offers file sharing. I'm sure most of the channels have a ratio system though.

      mIRC program itself is safe. IRC on the other hand may not be safe esp. if you are a novice user
      Our EFnet team runs several irc channels, including #Pakistan. There is also a channel called #bollywood on EFnet where you will find all sorts of svcd/vdc/dvd-rips/mp3 etc.
      We also have #cricket on EFnet and plans are underway for a live cricket commentary using automated bots for all the matches for the upcoming World Cup.
      To get on EFnet, you ofcourse need a client software such as mIRC. Next
      you put in the server irc.ef.net and port 6667. Bingo!

        So u mean that I need not have know any coding and stuff to get started? If that's the case then I'm safe!

        But tell me will my computer be safe? For e.g. When I use kazaa the ony folder that can been hacked or stalked by users or hacker is the folder called 'my shared folder'.

        So is there a similar system on MiRC??? Or will my entire harddrisk be inconstant threat from hackers all the time??? I want to be as same as possible u see!

        And tell me more about this ration system, wot's that all about?

          The difference between MiRC and iRC is? as I thought that they were both the same stuff...

          Ok... so I downoad a client software such as MiRC or iRC and then just feed in the address of your EFnet and that's it!!! so system theats or anything as such?

          Yaar I dont want to damage my brand new computer that's all... or my parents will kill me!

            IRC is the oldest multi-user chat system on the internet, and as a protocol it's older than the World Wide Web. IRC was born during summer 1988 when Jarkko "WiZ" Oikarinen wrote the first IRC client and server at the University of Oulu, Finland (where he was working at the Department of Information Processing Science).

            IRC (Internet Relay Chat) provides a way of communicating in real time with people from all over the world. It consists of various separate networks (or "nets") of IRC servers, machines that allow users to connect to IRC. The largest nets are EFnet (the original IRC net, often having more than 32,000 people at once), Undernet, IRCnet, DALnet, and NewNet.
            Generally, the user (such as you) runs a program (called a "client") to connect to a server on one of the IRC nets. The server relays information to and from other servers on the same net. Recommended clients:

            UNIX/shell: ircII, epic, *****X
            Windows: mIRC or PIRCH
            Macintosh: Ircle

            mIRC, the windows based client for IRC, was developed by Khaled Mardam-Bey, who started working on mIRC in late 1994, and released the first public version on the 28th of February, 1995.

            Here is a lil funny quote from a recent conversation on an EFnet channel :

            (user1) dalnet is #1 coz of 3rd world countries exploding on it.
            (user2) mirc has undernet/dalnet servers as defaults
            (user2) and newbies think mirc is everything haha
            (user1) thank you mardem gay
            (user1) they call irc mirc.
            (user1) meet me on mirc


            After you download mIRC make sure you read all the FAQs. Disable DCC (If you dont know what DCC is, go read in FAQs). NEVER accept any file from anyone on IRC. Make sure you have a reliable anti-virus software (with up to date virus definitions). A firewall is a plus, but not necessary. If you follow these basic rules, you will be safe for the msot part.
            Remember, when you are on IRC, you are exposing your IP address to world and that makes u vulnerable to all sorts of virus/worms/trojans and DoS attacks to name a few.

            If you havent been on IRC or mIRC (as you call it) before, make sure you read whateer you can from this site. After that you can PM me and Ill tell you more

              mIRC is very easy to use & good for new commers. However ircII 2.2.1 was the first one I used when I started using IRC 1990. It was upgraded to ircII 2.2.9 & then ircII 2.8.2 & thats the minimum standard now.

              I use Epic now, because it supports mIRC based colour scheme to save me from stupid sensless floods when I am monitoring our IRC Server.

              We have Servers running on Undernet & DALNET. Obviously it makes me IRC-Operator (dont ask any favours) for Undernet. I dont take any interest in DALNET.

              Security as u asked earlier is always a big issue. Any machine hooked upto any network is not secure, even connected to modem accepting connections. The only secure machine is stand-alone. You can take some steps to make your on-line machine. (1) If using windows, then get a zone-alarm PRO & block all the ports you dont want to be known open to the world. (2) Never run mIRC Software in SERVER-MODE. (3) Install a good anti-virus with latest DAT (Definition files). (4) Never accept any file from anyone unless u personally (in real life) know the person.

              Easy of use: Easiet software to use on Windows is mIRC (you dont need any coding) the file sharing BOT/SERVER will tell you how u can download the file from it. On Linux u can use "kirc" (comes with KDE) or *****X. Both of them support Windows environment. Otherwise for command line IRC use Epic. Epic is not easy to use for a novice. There are several scripts available for EPIC the most common is known as LICE. Phoenix is old script I didn't see an updated copy for phoenix for long though Phoenix used to be better than Lice. But now Lice is better than Phoenix.

              Good luck with mIRC. I dont use mIRC to download anything or file sharing. I used ircII 2.2.9 with Phenix most & enjoyed the good old days chatting with girls, when 3rd world was unaware of WEB & decent people used to come on IRC.

              Its IRC - Internet Relay Chat.
              mIRC is an IRC Client, merdamIRC Client. But 5abi is right, most of the people only know mIRC & for them everything is mIRC.

              & I hate when people send loads of messages to my BOT - asl.

              Goood luck.

              asl plz

                          aladin, no need to register mIRC, its not worth paying for :>
                          It will expire or so after maybe 30 days, but thats ok. When it expires, delete it from add/remove on ur control settings and download a fresh copy. That ought to give u another 30 days
                          So now that you are on #bollywood, use same nick i.e aladin and join #Pakistan, Ill find u and tell you more. Lates
