In order to connect to IRC securely with mIRC using SSL (Secure Socket Layer), you will need to download the latest copy of the OpenSSL software for Windows.

Please read the system requirements below before downloading.

This program is available for download (and is free) at the following location:

The file that you want to download is the "Setup" copy (not the one that says "Sources" unless you know how to compile them yourself).

Your mIRC client must be able to support SSL. To determine whether or not your copy can support SSL, while in mIRC, on your keyboard, press Shift and F1 or click "Help" then "Search".

Click the "Find" tab. In the "Type the word(s) you want to find" box, type SSL. If your client supports SSL, you should see in box number 3 the following: "Connect Options" and "SSL". If you do not see those or anything pertaining to SSL then you need a higher version.

To connect to the IRC server via SSL, use the following syntax:

/server +XXXX
/server +XXXX


Win32, i.e. MS-Windows 95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / 2008 with msvcrt.dll and msvcp60.dll. If msvcrt.dll or msvcp60.dll is not in your Windows/System (in 9x) or Windows/System32 (in XP) folder, get them from Microsoft, or (msvcrt.dll only) by installing Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher.

Once the file is downloaded, install with the default options. There is nothing that you need to modify and no system restart is necessary.
