There are several ways to connect to a IRC Bouncers such as ZNC

Connecting using the Server list

The first Username and Password fields should match the username and password provided by your ZNC provider.

Alternatively you can use username:password in the Password field and set the Username field to anything you want.

Set the Nick, Fullname and Alternative nicks to whatever you want.

Connecting by direct command

Check the /server wiki for a complete overview of command parameters. Two quick example:

  1. Non SSL:
    /server -m you.znc.net:5708 -p login:password
  2. SSL:
    /server -m you.znc.net:+5708 -p login:password

To connect using SSL, add + to port prefix or use the parameter -ssl.

Ps: for no specified parameters like nick (-i), username (-u), realname (-r), etc, AdiIRC will use the default values set in /quickconnect.

Connecting by script

on *:start: {
  server you.znc.net:5708 -p login:password
