How to access and contribute on CIX
To read and contribute to 30 years of conversations on CIX you either need to login to our online interface known as 'Forums' or to download and install one of our own applications, or one created by a third party. Our own application is known as CIXReader with Windows and Mac equivalents providing you the ability to read, catch up and contribute on or offline.
The CIX online reader is known as 'Forums' and allows you to login anywhere in the world to access your Forums. Forums works in much the same way as using webmail to read your emails, making it easy to read and join in conversations. You can access Forums through any of the major browsers, so as long as you have an Internet connection, you can login and contribute.
CIXReader is the new way to access CIX Forums on Windows or Mac OSX and read messages either off-line or on-line. Allows instant and draft postings, immediate access to whole topics, forums and automatically keeps in sync with the CIX Forums web interface.
