EggDrop Party Line Connection for mIRC

By FordLawnmower on Jul 18, 2010

This script will allow you to connect to one or more eggdrops without the need for a telnet program or dcc chat.
Unlike most of my scripts, I'm actually interested in this one, so if you have any suggestions for improvements please post them here.

Getting Started:

  • Paste to a blank remote and save with a unique filename.
  • Right Click the channel or status and select EggDrop Connect.
  • Fill in all the boxes and click Connect.

Explanation of the input boxes:

  • IP Address = The ip address of the eggdrop
  • Port = The port the bot is listening for connections on.
  • Handle = The name the bot knows you by(not your current nick).
  • Password = The password you set with the eggdrop.

Updated to make it easier to change colors.
See the ;; comments at the top of the script.
Updated Screen:

An amazingly useful script, but is there any way to make the window title more user friendly, e.g. use the bot name instead of the sockname?

Never mind, did it myself

Ahhh ok

FordLawnmower   -  Nov 22, 2010

Nope. You can disconnect from the server and still be connected but if you close mIRC the telnet connection to the eggdrop will also be closed.

Dark|   -  Nov 22, 2010

i was asking if your running this and you close mIRC will this still be running?

FordLawnmower   -  Nov 22, 2010

@Dark| I'm not exactly sure what your are asking.
If you have a telnet connection to your eggdrop and you close the @EggdropConnect window, you will break the telnet connection with the eggdrop but this will have no effect on the bots connection status on the irc server.

Dark|   -  Nov 22, 2010

if you close the mirc window - will the bot dc? i know this is a silly qustion,

FordLawnmower   -  Sep 20, 2010

Thanks RaZ :)
I use this script to manage 100 eggdrops and all of them remain connected to my mIRC 24 hours a day with no problems.
Way better than trying to use multiple telnet windows.
This also makes it easy to script popups for the eggdrop windows so you can just click for common commands.
I've also found that it's very easy to script loops to send a single command to all the eggys at once :)

RaZ   -  Sep 19, 2010

Very Very Veryy Nice Scriptttttt

FordLawnmower   -  Aug 30, 2010

Your Welcome LostTruths :)

Works great. thx and keep up the good coding. ;p

@kenJi If your eggdrop is running on a shell then you should get that information from your shell provider.

I just used /dns

FordLawnmower   -  Jul 22, 2010

@kenJi If your eggdrop is running on a shell then you should get that information from your shell provider.
The port should always be listed in your eggdrop.conf in a line like this:

listen 3333 all

In this case 3333 will probably be your port.
If you are using a windrop or a eggdrop on a computer on your lan then you are going to want to connect to the bot with it's local ip. You can find the local ip of a computer by:
On windows:
Start -> Run -> Cmd [enter]
Type ipconfig in the black window.
Look for a x.x.x.x number adjacent to Ipv4.

On Linux:
Open the terminal and type ifconfig
If you get an error on this , type su, enter your admin password and then try again
Look for a inet addr x.x.x.x That is not

.... your eggdrop's ip and port.. not something imaginary...

kenJi   -  Jul 22, 2010

teach me what IP should i put? and port? where can i get IP that i gonna put.. -.-

FordLawnmower   -  Jul 22, 2010

Thanks }{exer :)

}{exer   -  Jul 22, 2010

I say Thanks too again :)

It is Flawless as usual !

FordLawnmower   -  Jul 22, 2010

Thanks sk68 :) I'm glad it's working well for you.
I've added a couple of connection related popups so you can disconnect without closing the bots window. This also fixes a small bug that was attempting to send to the socket without checking to see if the socket was still open. .Quit will also work with this.

sk68   -  Jul 22, 2010

Just used this script for my eggie, works great, even though my lazy ass had to dns my shell's host to get the right IP :P but, works without a flaw so far and even looks better than normal telnet or dcc chat sessions :D

SnoooP   -  Jul 19, 2010

This is a really interesting idea, i'm keen to try this out myself i'll get back to you with how it is, but yeah really nice idea (thumbs up)

FordLawnmower   -  Jul 18, 2010

@kenJi Is that the ip for your EggDrop?
Also have you ever connected to this eggy before. With telnet or dcc?
Any other information you could give me would help.
Windrop or eggdrop?
Home computer or shell?
The error you got is generated when there is no response from the connection. This normally means that there is no eggdrop "running" at that ip listening on that port.

kenJi   -  Jul 18, 2010

Connecting to your Eggdrop. Please Wait.......
Socket Error Cannot Connect...
No one seems to be listening on
Check your IP Address / Port Settings and Try Again.

--- what should i do?. i put my IP add. and port but still not connecting.. -.-
