IMPORTANT NOTICE
« on: July 28, 2009, 03:30:23 PM »
It appears that one of the main hostnames for our server has stopped functioning properly due to a security issue. We are still looking into what is causing this, however:

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
YOU MUST USE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING DOMAINS TO ACCESS THIS SITE:

outpostuniverse.net
outpost2.net
outpost2.com

This applies to ALL subdomains (for example, forum.outpost2.net to access the forum; irc.outpost2.net to access IRC).

Update your bookmarks. Directions to update your IRC client are listed below.

IF YOU FAIL TO DO THIS YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE WEBSITE, IRC, OR ANY OTHER OUTPOST UNIVERSE NETWORK SERVICE.

IF ANYONE INFORMS YOU THAT THE OLD DOMAIN NAME IS STILL WORKING, OR THAT YOU CAN ACCESS IRC THROUGH A DOMAIN NOT LISTED ABOVE -- THEY ARE GIVING YOU FALSE INFORMATION

http://forum.outpostuniverse.net/ and http://forum.outpost2.net/
ARE THE ONLY OFFICIAL SOURCES FOR DOMAIN RELOCATION INFORMATION


We will provide you with more information in the coming days.

Thank you for your cooperation.
The OPU Staff

RECONFIGURING MIRC TO CONNECT TO irc.outpost2.net

This guide is based on our OPU NNS/mIRC package. If you are using a different distribution of NNS/mIRC the details of the steps you need to take to reconfigure the server settings will depend on the settings used by your distribution.


STEP 1

In mIRC, click File->Select Server..., or press Alt+E.

STEP 2

In the IRC Network dropdown menu, select the item for the OPU IRC network, which is named "OPU" in our mIRC package.

STEP 3

Select the first item in the "IRC Server" dropdown, and click the Edit button.

STEP 4

Replace the entry next to "IRC Server" with irc.outpost2.net.

STEP 5

Optional: repeat steps 3 and 4 for each item in the "IRC Server" dropdown menu.
