How to use matrix as an IRC client to join #fsci

  • See this guide for freenode specific instructions
  1. On Matrix, open a new chat (with Riot app this is the "+" sign on the bottom right)
  2. Invite @oftc-irc:matrix.org to the new chat
  3. Say !nick <yournick>
  4. A request for new chat with NickServ will pop up (if not invite @_oftc_NickServ:matrix.org). Accept it.
  5. Send "REGISTER <password> <email>" to register your nickname.
  6. "identify <password>" can be used to authenticate (in case the bridge reconnects)

Send this "!cmd MODE #<channel name> +Me *!*@gateway/shell/matrix.org/*" to @appservice-irc:matrix.org to ban all unregistred nicks except matrix bridged users (for Freenode channels).

On OFTC "!cmd MODE #<channel name> +Me *!*@2001:470:1af1:101::*" to @oftc-irc:matrix.org (For OFTC channels), though it does not seem to work, more here https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-appservice-irc/issues/716
