    Users nickname resetting to default nickname every time they connect

    User says he has heard of something like this and it was on the server side?
    Server has never had this problem before in years but it is quite a while since the server had a new client.
    Server and channel groups have been assigned for this client and the server does actually recognise this.

    Maybe it is the client at fault?
    Maybe the file is read only and the change does not get written back into the file?

    Nickname cannot be influences by the server at all. You can only add server group names in front or behind, but nothing else.

    This has nothing to do with servers. When a client connects to a server, it uses a previously defined nickname. This nick can either be changed when clicking on Connections, Connect, Nickname, or, if using bookmarks, Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks, Nickname.
    The only thing a server might do is add a number to the name if it is already in use, so that would turn "Nickname" into something like "Nickname1".

    ok so client is at fault

    any idea why their nickname does not 'stick' when they rejoin the server?
    they join,change nickname,leave,come back and nickname is back to default.
    I'll get them to check file properties for read only............

    It's an user option or election.

    Settings --> Options --> Application --> In "Server" section, activate the "Automatically update nickname in bookmark" --> "Ok" button.

    Also, they can change the Nickname in their bookmarks.

    I'll walk them through it when they get online
