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

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

When using the command without any of the given parameters, it will connect to the specified server; the server in the active window will be disconnected unless you prepend the server with the ‘+’ character; the same method is applicable to the CONNECT parameter.
