When I try to connect to irc.****.org, I get these errors:


Connect retry #4 ****.org (6667)
Send error ([10022] Invalid argument)
Not connected to server
Connect retry #5 ****.org (6667) (dns pool)

There's nothing we can do about this, or even check it ourselves as you have used **** in place of the network/server name, which we would need in order to try to connect ourselves.

"DNS Pool" is not an error, it just means that the named address you are connecting to maps to several different numeric (IP) addresses, any of which would connect you to the network, and one is chosen at random.


(OK, not necessarily at 'random', but how it's chosen is unimportant here)

If you are unable to connect to any servers on any IRC network, you may be running anti-virus or firewall software that is blocking mIRC and preventing it from connecting. You would need to add mIRC to the allowed/exceptions list of your anti-virus or firewall software to allow it to connect.

The only reason you would not be able to connect to any IRC network is that mIRC is being blocked by either anti-virus or firewall software, or perhaps even by Windows itself. I have not come across any other reasons for this kind of issue (unless we also consider that you are using a network connection that is preventing such connections - but that's unlikely unless you are using mIRC from work or school). Also note that, as far as I know, you do not need to open up any router ports to connect to a server. If you find the solution, please let us know.

You might also want to make sure that you are using an official copy of mIRC from the mIRC website. Hacked versions of mIRC often contain trojans or viruses, are usually silently blocked by anti-virus or firewall software, and often exhibit other problems.

I unninstalled my older version of mIRC, downloaded the official software from here, used it as a trial , added it automaticly to windows firewall as exception, and it still doesn`t work . . i Just don`t know what to try anymore. . . I guess i`l have to just quit using Irc . . .
