Description

Displays, adds, modifies or removes the network configuration of IRC networks.

When using the ADD parameter on a network that already exists, the configuration will be merged with each other.

We recommend using ‘WAIT 2000’ between the automated commands in order to prevent you from being kicked from the network due to flooding commands.

Examples

/NETWORK ADD -usermode +giw EFnet
/NETWORK ADD -usermode +iw -nick mike -realname 'The one and only mike!' -host staff.irssi.org Freenode
/NETWORK ADD -autosendcmd '^MSG NickServ identify WzerT8zq' Freenode
/NETWORK ADD -autosendcmd '^MSG [email protected] AUTH mike WzerT8zq; WAIT 2000; OPER mike WzerT8zq; WAIT 2000; MODE mike +kXP' Quakenet
