This might have been asked on the list before, but without a
searching function on the archives I can't really tell. Anyways, what I'm
looking for is a way to do alternate nicks on a per-server basis. I have
one server that I have a different nick on from the others I connect to,
and the alternate nick setting doesn't work properly there. I've tried
setting alternate_nick in the chatnet block for that server in the config
file, but that doesn't do it either. Any ideas?

Why is it so important that you have a different nick on one server out of
the entire network?

Because everything else is network-specific ... Including the channels
you're in.

And no, there doesn't appear to be anything that would let you do that,
unless you write your own perl script and hook it into some server
connection signals.

I think what he meant was that he wants to specify a different nick per chat
network. One nick for undernet, another for freenode, etc. I need to know how
to set this in the config file. Anyone know how?

Meh, just do

/ircnet add -nick <insert_nick_here> undernet

And

/save

And your custom nick will be saved in the ircnet entry. Which you could
have found out by reading:

/help ircnet

I think you all misunderstood where I was going with this. If I log into
a network twice, it picks up my alternate_nick setting for hte second
client to connect. Now, for one of the networks I connect to I use a
different nick, and therefore would want a different alternate nick than
the rest. Is there a way to do this?
Hello.
You can use 'nick = "something";

No, he wants to set the ALTERNATE nick differently for seperate
networks:

08:56 [server]
08:56 nick = Athan
08:56 alternate_nick = AthanToo

It's the 'alternate_nick' variable that he wants to be able to set per
network.

Ok, that's basically what I wanted to hear was that it wasn't possible.
I'll just fix the setting on the second computer and make it use the second
nick as the first. Thanks guys.
