Everyone You Are Welcome At Irc!
« on: October 15, 2006, 04:56:08 AM »
If you look at the numbers at the forums and the IRC, 3 times more people are only on forums.

And 50% or more don't know that there is IRC channel and server just for OP.

So for everyone, here is a message:

If they are new to the forum then this thread wouldn't come up on the 'view new posts search' as they wouldn't have any new posts to look at!

easier to just write a proper documents and give links to the forum threads with the relevent troubleshooting info!

e.g. the already exisitng sticky http://forum.outpostuniverse.net/index.php?showtopic=2808

at the top of the IRC subforum

I have an incredible desire to get on IRC but it is totally whipping my non-programmer bum.
It tries to connect to the irc.outpostuniverse.net server through all 3 ports, 6667-6669, and everytime it tells me *Unable to connect to server (Software caused connection abort)
I tried: /server irc.outpostuniverse.net:6667
/server 69.61.60.70

neither of them changes anything.

I can connect to a few of the other servers, Gamernet, Starchat, though of course since I have no idea what I'm doing all I could see is that I joined the channel. I never could see any "chat" area on those servers.

perhaps we should consider some sort of alternative? *prepares for lashing*

it seems like people are having a really hard time getting on irc and we have to make it simpler for people with little or no terminal experience.

Just about the only time I've ever gotten "Software caused connection aborts" is when I have an excessive amount of internet traffic going on. Like say one or even two p2p clients going full blast. I don't suppose you had anything similar? Any other types of bandwidth hogs?

It could be something else entirely though. I don't really know.

Only errors i had where those when OP server was down.
And few when i touched scripts (whoops)

This s a lesson: Don't touch SCRIPTS!

Tried restarting the computer?

You might want to try restarting any router you have as well.

"Software caused connection abort" is something that the operating system's network stack is causing (though it can be triggered by external devices, for example I would get them when my router crashed. Rebooting the router fixed the problem).

If you have firewall software this could be a possible cause (including the windows firewall). Allow outgoing connections on TCP ports 6667 through 6669.

Yes, if you have p2p apps going this will easily get you to the maximum number of network sockets (there are such limits, in older versions of windows, I think it's as low as 64 sockets. Technical limits, has to do with the amount of memory the operating system reserves for network connection descriptors, although needlessly artificially low).

Lastly it could be possible that your ISP is blocking IRC, doubt this though because the message would generally be something like "Connection timed out" instead of "Software caused connection abort."

Horus and others: We do have CGI:IRC, which is a server based IRC client (you just need a webbrowser to access it -- your computer doesn't make a direct connection to the irc server), however I don't want to give out the URL / password to that unless you really can't connect (it consumes lots of system resources so I want to keep the users using it to a minimum).
