When trying to connect to an irc server in irssi, I get the following error:
root Erroneous Nickname: Reserved for services
I don't know how to change the nickname before the connection is established. I'm currently connected to one server, where I have my proper nick, but when trying to connect to another server with
connect irc.foo.com, which should open another connection, it's trying with the nickname root.
How do I change this nickname?
