Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: IRC Channel

  1. #1

    IRC Channel


    I can't access the IRC Channel :-\ I downloaded mIRC, set the options right:

    IRC Network: All
    Random US DALnet server

    I filled in all the fields like email and nickname and all, but I just can't connect. This is what it says:

    * Connecting to irc.dal.net (6667)
    * Unable to connect (Connection Timed Out)

    Error window: You seem to be having trouble connecting to an IRC server. The message that appeared said "Unable to connect to IRC server". Click on the help button below for more information that might help you.

    I tried to check those four boxes the Announcement spoke of, but no luck. What am I doing wrong ?
    Wait, what?

    Wait, what?

    rather than selecting a random DALnet server, try specifying one in the options. since you're in europe, it might be worth trying one with EU in the server name

  4. #4
    google for some alternate DALnet servers and try connecting with them

  5. #5
    Yeah, I had to go throught he list of DALnet servers manually until I found one that worked , but it's served me good since then
