Tips to register to freenode irc (ubuntu and asterisk)

Notes from

1. Join the Freenode network. Open your favorite IRC client and type:

2. Idintfiy your nick.
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY

3. Change your user name to the user name you have chosen. Suppose you chose the nick "rocketship". Type the following in the window titled Freenode:
/nick rocketship

4. Register your nick or user name. Type the following command and replace "your_password" with a password that will be easy to remember.
/msg nickserv register your_password

5. Associate a valid email address with your user name. This step is important because it will allow you to assign a new password in case you forget the current one. Type the following:
/msg nickserv set email your-email

If you want your email address to remain private, use the following command:
/msg nickserv set hide email on

6. Register an alternate nickname using the same password. If you would like to register an alternate nickname, repeat the same procedure, using steps 2 to 4.

7. Link your two user names. This will make your two nicknames function as one in various ways. For example, you will not have to sign in each time you wish to change your nickname. Many people change their nicknames to a variant that indicates that they are absent. The linked nicknames will also share memos (messages sent through MemoServ), access to channels, etc. Type the following, when you are using your secondary nickname:
/msg nickserv link your_primary_nick your_password

8. Identify with Nickserv. Each time you connect, you should sign in, or "identify" yourself, using the following command:
/msg nickserv identify your_password
