hello there, im having issues on connecting servers lately. I dont have firewall, i only have avg anti virus and i dont think it affects this problem im having because it was ok with the av before. Right now im getting unable to connect messeage on EVERY server ! i dont know whats wrong, i check everything i have 0 firewalls no xp firewall no software firewalls. It might be a proxy problem maybe because i was having probs on aim as well but i did a check config on the program and it found the right port for it and it connects fine now but in irc i cant seem to connect anywhere.
here's the mess

* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #10 194.68.45.50 (7000)
-
* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #11 mesra.kl.my.dal.net (6665)
-
* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #12 irc.dal.net (6665)
-
* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #13 powertech.no.eu.dal.net (6667

When you say "every" server, have you tried other networks than DALnet as all I see in your paste is DALnet servers. You might try irc.undernet.org or irc.quakenet.org and see if it's every network, if you haven't tried that already.

If you absolutely have to connect through a proxy then you need to edit mIRC's proxy settings. This is accessible at ALT+O > Connect > Firewall. Extensive help can be found at http://www.mirc.co.uk/help/proxies.html.

Do you actually need to connect through a proxy? Most people do not...do you know what a proxy is?

All the available help I could possibly give is in the URL I linked to, I don't know anymore than what is on that page as I have never connected through a proxy myself.

If you had issues connecting to AIM perhaps it's an ISP issue? Your ISP might be getting attacks? Try contacting them and see if they've had any problems recently, or are currently having problems. You might even let them know you're having issues connecting to IRC and some other Internet services such as AIM.

You may also want to use our Search feature and search for relevant help. If nothing in this thread helps, plenty of other topics have been started about this error message and other general connection issues. Expand to 'All Forums' and 'All Posts' for best results.

A G-line a global ban on the network, so you are banned from the entire network on all of its servers. A K-line is a local ban on a server, and so you can connect to another server on that network and it should let you on.

K-lines and G-lines have nothing to do with mIRC - We have no control over them, and the only person or persons that can deal with it are the staff of that particular IRC network. Check out this thread for further information.

The problem with places that have networks set up such as colleges, universities, work-places and so forth, is they often have network firewalls that block a lot of the ports needed for IRC access. This is in fact often intentional due to the dangers that IRC could bring to a network (for example, obtaining a virus from DCC).

You'll need to talk the teacher/professor/etc in charge of that area of the college (computer/internet setup) and see if they can help you. Not much we can do this side.

Or is it a GameSurge specific issue? Can you connect to other IRC networks?

For information related to being banned from a server/network, please see this thread. By 'user' it might mean your username/identd - see if this thread has anything of relevance to what you're experiencing.

Clones are multiple connections to a server/network - make sure you're not bringing bot(s) on to the server/network. If you're connecting via a network (i.e. cyber cafe, work, school, college etc.) then it could be too many people are trying to connect to IRC at the same time.

Please read the description of that error in this Common Errors thread for an explanation

It would seem others are having problems connecting there right now as well. To try to find out whats going on with criten, try checking their website for any info, http://www.criten.net/criten.html

Ok, i've had a look through all the threads on these message boards and no-one has had a problem like mine (as far as I can see). I'm a 17 year old student and my dad found my younger brother using mIRC when he was meant to be studying. We have a d-link wireless router (I had a look on their page and can't find one that looks like ours) and I run the latest version of mIRC. I get the unable to connect (connection refused) problem and I think it's because my dad has blocked ports for any server i join (6667-7001 i think). I think this as if I try to use any other program than mIRC (x-chat etc) it still can't join. I was wondering, does anyone have any idea how to get past these blockages at the router? I specifically want to be able to join irc.solidirc.com crazy. Anyone got any ideas to help me here? I have no access whatsoever to the router (I wouldn't want to be caught anyway) . I was talking to an op on that server w/ a friends computer and he said I could try using SSL encryption so I downloaded all that but I forgot the port he suggested blush. Someone plz help me get rid of these withdrawal symptoms!
