If you need general help or have questions about the conference join us in IRC (information below) or send us an email at and we will do our best to help you in any way we can.

If you’re not familiar with IRC and setting up a client just head on over to where we have a nice web front-end that easily gets you right in! All you need to do is type in a nickname and hit ‘Start…’ to join. If you need further IRC help, just ask in the first channel that comes up.
Otherwise, if you would like to join us on your own client you can connect to our server with the following:

  • Server Address:
  • Server Port: 6667
  • Server Port (SSL): 6697
  • Main Channel: #kansaslinuxfest
