The command 'port dir ircii' will show you the directory of the ircii
port. This directory contains a file named Portfile that contains
several options, among them there's your default server line.

Use a plain text editor, i.e. not TextEdit in rich text mode. If you
don't already have one of choice and you want to use an editor with a
GUI I suggest TextWrangler of Bare Bones Software.
TextEdit in plain text mode will do the job too.
