Registering an account and password resets on OFTC irc

Register your account with (steps here)

/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <e-mail>

Identify with:

/msg NickServ IDENTIFY <password> <nickname>

Password reset with:

/msg NickServ sendpass <nickname>

Check your email for a reset code, then:

/msg NickServ sendpass <nickname> <resetcode> <newpassword>

Some additional notes:

  • in irssi, /msg NickServ will open an additional window in your terminal. To see the output of the command, use Alt-2 or whatever window number is where that command was run
  • If you’re in that window connected to NickServ, you can enter the other commands directly to NickServ without the /msg NickServ prefix
