Once you have the client downloaded and installed, you'll need to create a new connection. Typically, clients have an address book or another aptly named place where you store game connection information. You need two pieces of information to connect:

Simply input these two pieces of info in the proper fields, and hit connect! A welcome screen should be output to your client.
