master password, I really want to save it
« on: June 29, 2007, 02:52:48 PM »
I really want to store the master key (mirc). Really anoying to enter it every time. I know this is not recommend. For my own security needs this is ok. I don`t trust the irc server and the ircops, but I trust my computer. Would be fine enough to have a save password function in the next versions.

For now, I would be happy if you can tell me how I could avoid to enter the master password . Can I store it somewhere in the mirc script?

Yes, you can do what you ask.
It's described near the bottom of the help file -- don't have it with me at the moment but if you search help file for master password you should be able to find it.

Found it. Thanks.

If you feel confident that your local machine is secure, there is a feature to let you store your master passphrase in a mirc file and not enter it each time.  You can do this by adding a line to your alt-R variables list:
