I recently installed mIRC, and can't connect to any of the servers. Under options I have told it to connect to ALL IRC Networks. Every server on the list reports the same thing.
Unable to connect to server (Connection refused)
I realize some servers may be down or no longer there, but I find it hard to believe that every IRC server on the list is bad.
I am not running a firewall. I am using a cable modem through my local cable company (Shaw) located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. How do I figure out if my service provider is the cause of the problem? Is there a way to do this without phoning them?
