I haven't done anything different in the last week but for three days now I cannot connect. Says Network unreachable or connection timed out. Any help would be appreciated.

It would help the possible "helpers" if you told what network you're trying to connect, and if you've tried connecting to other networks as well.


Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

Sounds like your update also reset some items so that mIRC isn't cleared through the firewall any longer. I don't have Zone Labs Security, but I do seem to recall seeing that name with other similar problems. Try searching this forum for "Zone Labs Security" and extend the time period to 1 month (or longer). The default is 1 week.

open zonealarm and click IM security select settings from the top and click advanced. If the block irc is checked then uncheck it
good luck

Hi,
I have a problem, I can't connect to any servers.
I've tried all the ones in my recent list and none of them work and it was working yesterday.
I've been experiencing a few disconnections problems for a little while but nothing like that.
[10053] Software caused connection abort
-
[10:31:47]am * Disconnected
-
[10:31:50]am * Connect retry #1 Lantry.irc.star-fleet.net (6667)
-
[10:32:10]am * Unable to connect to server (Connection attempt timed out)
-
[10:32:13]am * Connect retry #2 64.18.129.241 (6667)
-
[10:32:32]am * Unable to connect to server (Connection attempt timed out)
-
[10:32:35]am * Connect retry #3 DS9.irc.star-fleet.net (6667)
-
[10:32:54]am * Unable to connect to server (Connection attempt timed out)
-
[10:32:57]am * Connect retry #4 72.20.44.179 (6667)

I'm just getting frustrated because I can't figure out what's wrong. I haven't changed any settings.
Sorry , I managed to connect to one server but it was weird, it was almost empty and the command !newmovies didn't work as well as @find, so I tried to connect somewhere else and didn't work. Please help me!!!

Star Fleet was experencing difficulties at the time (maybe the romulans were up to there old tricks) but there sorting them out now, service should stablize sooner or later.

Hello,

I'm new to Sysreset and tried to set up a file server. I followed the step-by-step instructions from the help file for quick/basic file server setup.

The problem: People who try to connect get the error message:
Quote:
Client: KyaniteD (xx.xxx.xx.xxx)
Time: Thu Dec 14 02:19:13 2006
-
Acknowledging chat request...
-
Unable to connect
-
DCC session closed


I have set my router to forward the following ports:
59, 113, 6060, 6660-7000

The file server responds to the !list command and advertises correctly.

I myself have no trouble connecting to other people's file servers, resp. downloading from them.

I'm using no proxy, windows firewall and software firewall are deactivated. Antivirus is running, though. [If that should be the problem the file server is not worth the security risk.]

I'm using the Sysreset 2.53 with mIRC v6.14 package on a Windows XP SP2 machine.

Any help or hints how/where to find help are much appreciated.
[On this note, is it possible to do a phrase search here?]

-Kya

Ok, I solved the problem.

In the Options/Connect/Options/Advanced is a range of ports to be used with DCC that needs to be forwarded in the router.

Sorry for the bother.

What does it mean if my mIRC's reason for not connecting to the server is "connection refused"?

In your case, it looks like the problem is with the G at the beginning of Gregair13. Try using gregair13

This sounds like a script is trying to connect to the internet, and it's not able. Try removing all scripts that you have, or if you're not sure how to do that, start mIRC, then type /!remote off

That will disable any and all scripts. Then try to connect using your normal method.
