You connect to znc using any ordinary irc client. You may configure your znc account via irc commands. You may find it a lot easier however to configure your networks and settings using the Web configuration module. In which case, you would navigate to or depending on your port/ssl configuration.

If you have multiple irc networks setup under your znc account, you may connect to a specific one directly by adding /networkname to your username like so


Some Popular IRC clients


/set user_name myusername

Or to connect to a specific network you have setup add /networkname for instance

/set user_name myusername/freenode

Now connect and supply the password

/connect somethingheredoesntmatter "this is my password"

Or you can simply connect without a password and supply it after you've connected by running


At which stage you may enter your password by doing

/quote PASS myusername:mypassword

It doesn't matter what you put for nickname as the server will readjust to what the network is set to.
