Help - Services commands
This is the more professional part of using IRC.
You don't really need these commands to chat, but if you want to stay here more often, you should at least learn the basics. To use a command, just type it at your clients command line. Nearly every command need one or more parameters - just type them after the command seperated by spaces. Parameters will be displayed between < and > and parameters which are optional will be put into brackets [ ].
NickServ - Service to register and control Nicknames.
With NickServ you are able to save your nick, so that no other person is able to use it.
That requires a login (called identify) every time you join DeepIRC - nearly every IRC client provides an automatic logon.
You are allowed to register 20 nicknames on one nickname group.
Registering a nick name:
/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <eMail address>
Identify for a nick name:
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY <password>
Registering a second nick name and grouping it:
/nick <new nickname>
/msg NickServ GROUP <main nickname> <password>
Delete a nick name:
/nick <nickname to delete>
/msg NickServ DROP
Release a nickname if someone else uses it:
/msg NickServ GHOST <nickname> <password>
Change your NickServ settings:
/msg NickServ SET EMAIL <eMail address>
/msg NickServ SET PASSWORD <new password>
/msg NickServ SET URL <website>
/msg NickServ SET ICQ <ICQ number>
Change your language of the services output:
/msg NickServ SET LANGUAGE <language number>
You can get a list of languages by typing:
/msg NickServ HELP SET LANGUAGE
Show/Change the accesslist for a registered Nickname:
/msg NickServ ACCESS ADD <Ident@Host> - Adds a Host to the accesslist.
/msg NickServ ACCESS DEL <Ident@Host> - Deletes a Host from the accesslist.
/msg NickServ ACCESS LIST - Shows the actual Host permissions on a Nickgroup.
Attention: The Access command is used to be permanently identified with a Nickname to NickServ, this means that you get automatically identified to NickServ, every time you connect to the Network. Please be aware of choosing Hostmaks that are insecure, cause this can under some circumstances allow someone else to use your Nickname.
Example: Lets say you have a Host that looks like that: dslb-088-124-017-110.pools.arcor-ip.net
Wrong: /msg NickServ ACCESS ADD *@*.pools.arcor-ip.net
Right: /msg NickServ ACCESS ADD YourIdent@dslb-088-124.*.pools.arcor-ip.net
As you can see it is important to set a Hostmask that is broad enough to cover only your IP Block. This is according to some Providers not always possible, therefore it is more secure if you set an Ident to the Accessmask.
Additionally it is important to take care that you have to disable the secure option which is automatically set on new Nick registrations by typing /msg NickServ SET SECURE OFF in order for the accesslist to get processed.
We strictly recommend that you don´t use the accesslist functions as long as you have an dynamicly assigned Host, cause this could be a potential risk of unintended use of your Nicknames.
Also keep in mind that some functions could only be used restricted or not be used if you are identified from the accesslist.
For more informations about ACCESS:
/msg NickServ HELP ACCESS
Show information about a nickname:
(Notice: The ACCESS Command is with the implementation of our DeepServices no longer activated and therefore no longer supported)
/msg NickServ INFO <nickname>

Info about our Services:
This are our Main Services we provide on our Network, but there are still more Services in developement which will be added when they get a beta status and are ready to be linked from our Developement Network to our Main Network. So don´t be shy to revisit this page. We are currently working on some new Services especially for gamers and people that want a clean, secure and fast Network with many good and usefull services.
Also if you think that this help page doesn´t provide enough help and the help commands of the services are not clearly understandable for you, you can join our help channel #help on our Network and ask a question you want to know. If you don´t get an answer instantly, please just wait a few minutes. As you can see we are normal people, too that have our private things to do, but we try to get such things short and fast. So please be patient and don´t bother the Operators with private messages.
Thanks in advance,
Your DeepIRC Team
