In the server list, I have Freenode > Random server > edit > server is irc.freenode.net, port is 6666-6667.

In alt o > Connect > option > retry, I have 'try next server in group' unchecked.

/server irc.freenode.net can lead to mIRC trying to connect on port 6666 for what seems forever.

Quote:
[14:54:47] * Connecting to irc.freenode.net (6666)
[14:55:08] * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
[14:55:11] * Connect retry #1 irc.freenode.net (6666) (dns pool)
[14:55:32] * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)

And the above can go on forever

Is it normal for mIRC not to cycle between the two ports in this case, when one fails? Is it not cycling because it's not 'trying another server in group"?

Of course in this case I could just remove 6666, which is what I did for the meantimes, but the current implementation seems to be buggy.
