I can't even connect to it from Canada, so I've stopped trying and removed it from the servers list.

i must say that dalnet is the most stupid network out there.
it lists like 15 servers of which only 3 work of which there
is 10% chance that your connection will be accepted but
you wont connect on it so you can use it but will be ditched off for unknown reason

i mean what kind of idiots run this thing anyway?

and yes i fu*ked it off too but lately i needed to go there
(god forgive me for even think on that)

Umm...

Firstly, the DDoS attacks against DALnet ended ages ago. No doubt like any network they suffer from threats and actions on a regular basis, but from what I've heard there is no specific trouble as of late, and certainly nothing on the scale of the previous attacks.

I find it's best to use the irc.dal.net server pool to connect to DALnet since they introduced their IX servers. I have no problem connecting to DALnet at all (I'm in the UK too), and although I do get disconnected from there with 10053 more often than Undernet or EFnet, it isn't a massive amount more. Apparently, over 30,000 other clients also don't have trouble connecting.

According to /links by the way, it has 21 servers, I realise that the list available on the web isn't as up to date as that list.

Regards,

well i cant connect at all
in 20 attempts of connect it accepts me once
and then it passes MOTD and stops on 3-4 minutes and
gets timeout or software error, and so on for whole day !

cant believe such idiotic things exist today

Why would you want to go on DalNet anyway. It's just a server playground for all the trouble making botnet controllers, etc. There are many networks that are much better.

Whether or not dalnet is a good or bad network is irrelevant, razor needs to get on there and doesnt need to explain himself. As Mentality said, I've been using the irc.dal.net server pool since they introduced the IX servers and while I am in the US,I've not had those problems. I know when they first introduced the IX servers I had all kinds of issues but they eventually cleared themselves up between DAlnet or my own ISP making changes (and while I dont know which one, I dont care as I can get on any time I want to). Have you been able to get onto dalnet in the past or is this your first attempt (or first series of attempts) onto the network?

yeah, you certainly have a Catch-22 going on. Wish I could be of more assistance

Try java ? Does Dalnet support java? apart from testing I stay as far from there as possible.

Right, enough is enough with the bad language thanks. The filters are not there for you to avoid by censoring, and I'm getting as annoyed at your attitude as you are at DALnet. You can't connect to a network that thousands of other people can connect to, that doesn't mean the people who run DALnet are idiots, nor does it make DALnet a *bleep* network.

Now calm down smile

Here's an updated server list, not the one on the DALnet website:

slimey.uk.eu.dal.net
rumble.fl.us.dal.net
redemption.ix.us.dal.net
rangers.ix.us.dal.net
powertech.no.eu.dal.net
oi.ix.au.dal.net
novel.ix.us.dal.net
mozilla.se.eu.dal.net
mesra.kl.my.dal.net
matrix.de.eu.dal.net
masters.ix.us.dal.net
maple.ix.ca.dal.net
loyalty.ix.us.dal.net
jingo.ix.us.dal.net
jade.va.us.dal.net
irc.dal.net
hotspeed.sg.as.dal.net
hope.ix.us.dal.net
hoon.ix.au.dal.net
broadway.ny.us.dal.net
arcor.de.eu.dal.net

Whenever I'm having trouble with the main server pool, I usually manage to connect fine to mesra.dal.net or jade.dal.net. A lot of people find arcor and powertech good servers too, and they are both located within Europe.

Regards,

I haven't been able to use the DALnet Java Client for years.
Whenever I try, it tries to connect to jade.*, which NEVER connects.

I tried to talk to the Opers on the webteam for about 2 years, then gave up because they simply didn't seem to be interested in hearing about people that couldn't connect.

Just got this on dalnet Current global users: 30970 Max: 56468

I think that if that number of users can connect then so should you, unless you have a problem at your end. Does Dalnet suck/blow ? who cares with hundreds of thousands of networks out there and connection to any network being a priviledge and not a right, you gotta look at your connection 1st. Sorry if it upsets anyone but thats the truth.
