Before connecting to a MOO you have to be sure that either guest connections work or that you can obtain a ``character'' (user identity).
Most advanced clients will allow to automatize connection for a given user name. We will leave this to the reader. In the normal case (without specifying a user name and password to the client) you will see something like this when your client opens a connection to a MOO:
OOOOOO OOOOO OOOOO OOOOO OO M M MM MM Questions ?

TECFA, School of Psychology and Education, University of Geneva, Switzerland.
The TecfaMOO Project WWW page (including 'how to use' information):
Connect as a registered person by typing "connect (name) (password)"
Guests: type 'connect guest' - Type 'who' to see who is connected.
To connect simply type ``connect'' followed by your user name and password.
If you don't have a login carefully read the instructions on the page and
check if you can request a user name or if guest login is allowed. Some
MOOs will allow you to request a character via the ``@request'' command
once you are logged in as a guest, in some MOOs the ``request'' command
before you log in is enabled. Usually instructions are given on the
connect <user name> <password>

Some MOOs will ask questions for guest connections, e.g. ask you for
a name. Don't ignore those questions.
Again here is an example from TECFAMOO:
