I have been using IRC and recently I get the following message when I try to connect to a server.

"[22:25] -boston.ma.us.galaxynet.org- *** Looking up your hostname
-
[22:25] -boston.ma.us.galaxynet.org- *** Found your hostname (cached)
-
[22:25] -boston.ma.us.galaxynet.org- *** Checking for ident server
-
[22:27] Ping? Pong!
-
drone.

[cm224.delta243.maxonline.com.sg] by Boston2.MA.US.GalaxyNet.Org (K-lined)
-
[22:27] * Disconnected
-"

Can someone help me out? What is a drone? This never happened to me before.

Look at your ident information or your nick. If you have something like "asfdf" for your ident or nick, servers can assume you're a drone and automatically kill you. Also, if you're at a university or other EDU or any other connection where many people have the same IP address, if too many of you connect to a network at the same time, it will assume you're all the same person. Only way around that one is to contact the IRC network and explain the situation and see if they'll put your IP on a "safe" list.

Also, check to see what your VERSION information is (have someone "/ctcp nick version" you. If anything other than the mIRC version reply is there, then you might also be marked as a drone because of the version reply.

i have been using that nick for quite a long time... this is the first time getting this problem... something i find in common between me and zoocar9 that have the same problem is that both of us use galaxynet

i try changing my nick but still the problem occur

than i try changing to other server, example FunNet, and i connected successfully, why can't i connect through galaxynet confused

A K-line or G-line is a ban from a server or network respectively. They are unique to the server/network you're experiencing them on - like being banned from a channel, being banned from one doesn't ban you from them all. Being banned on one network doesn't ban you from all of them.

It can only be dealt with by the IRC Operators of the IRC network you're banned from, visit their website, find out the team or person who deals with K-lines, and find a contact email address.
