Where is the settings for a Port program put in?

I already have my .ircrc configured, however I am looking for the file
I am now because .ircrc doesn't work the way I like it. When I start up
ircII it automatically connects to irc.freenode.net, even though it is
not in my .ircrc file (.ircrc loads my other scripts fine too). What is
making my ircII client connect to Freenode in the first place? That is
what I am curious about.
