==Puppy Linux IRC Rules==
====Chat Room (Internet Relay Chat)====
~**IRC** is a form of instant messaging over the Internet. It is intended for group (many-to-many) communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication.
~The easiest way to join our chatroom when you are using Puppy is to **click on the Chat icon on the desktop**
==Using IRC Programs==
~If you have an IRC-enabled browser (e.g. [[Opera]] or [[SeaMonkey]]/[[Firefox]] with [[ChatZilla]] installed), go to irc://irc.freenode.net/puppylinux in your browser and then pick your nickname. If that doesn't work then with other IRC-capable programs like [[Attym]], [[Pidgin]]/[[Gaim]], [[XChat X-Chat]], irrsi, etc. enter **irc.freenode.net** as the chat server and **#puppylinux** as the channel in the appropriate places.
==Accessing the Puppy Linux Chat Without an IRC Program Installed==
~If you have no IRC program installed or prefer not to you may use the [[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=puppylinux Freenode Web Access]] site and any browser. You may either enter any nickname you wish but to [[http://freenode.net/using_the_network.shtml use a Freenode registered nickname]] then check the box for “Auth to services” and also enter your username and password.
==Freenode Policies and Chat Room Rules==
~Use of the [[http://freenode.net Freenode]]-hosted channel is subject to [[http://freenode.net/policy.shtml#offtopic Freenode's policies]] //and// [[http://freenode.net/channel_guidelines.shtml guidelines]].
