Looks like there's 2 problems, and they're both on irchighway's side. They have a server which times out the connection, and another server with an invalid certificate.

You can temporarily avoid the problem by setting mirc to 'display invalid cert for approval' and when you see the prompt, you can check the box at bottom to auto accept that cert in the future.

Unfortunately, you probably will continue having trouble connecting to +6697 SSL because their individual server names don't have a dns reply,

Also, once you check the box to accept a cert in the future, that adds an item to your servers.ini, so if you've done that in the past, there's the potential to have scads of certificate fingerprints that you've collected

edit: I took out the instructions on how to connect to server ip's directly since they dont want us to do that. So i guess hope that you can eventually connect to one of the servers in the round robin that will actually present the invalid cert for approval instead of just timing out like the others
