ircII help: ircII server_lists
The formats of an ircII server list is as follows: servername servername:portnum servername:portnum:password:nick servername::password:nick The servername is the name of the server, the portnum is the port number of that server to connect to, and the password is a connection password for that server. The first format above uses the default port number and no password. The second format specifies a port number for connection to the specified server and no password. The third format specifies both a port number and password for connection. The final format uses a password and the default port number. And, since we call these "server lists", you may specify as many of the above formats as you wish. These may be used on the IRCII command line (See HELP ircII command_line_args) and in the IRCSERVER environment variable (see HELP ircII environment_vars).
