Need Help With Irc
« on: November 05, 2006, 07:12:20 PM »
I cannot connect to the server for some reason.  it keeps telling me software caused connection abort.   i tried on ports 6667 6668 6669 and none of them are working.  If there are other ports to try let me know or if u know how to fix it thanks.  Also u can email me at malinko@comcast.net or contact me on aim at ldrRogue.  thanks in advance

You got an firewall blocking you. If you have Windows Firewall, go to firewall options, find IRC and set it to option "UNBLOCK" (the Firewall will grant access to internet", or if you have an other firewall, right click IRC.exe (not the shortcut) and try to configure it- if that doen't work, open firewall options and set "UNBLOCK" to grant access to IRC.

Oh, if anything of this works, i have no idea what else to do. :'(

I already have IRC as an exception and i can connect to other servers, it seems to be hit and miss with them.  Anyone have any more ideas, i would really like to play op2 again, its been soooooooo long. :(

I have PMed you with the CGI:IRC details, this should allow you to connect (although it's not pretty, it works).
