Hello, first of all I want to state that my technical knowledge re: networking is very low.
I'm trying to connect to an IRC where I believe I was mistakenly banned. From what I've read my options are to use a proxy with mirc or use mibbit, but it seems that mibbit is banned as well.
I'm using mirc 7.22
The first thing I do is google free irc proxy and find a site such as: http://aliveproxy.com/irc-proxy-list/.
I'll check one of the proxies and get:
Result of check HTTP/1.1 200 Connection established
OK! Proxy supports a CONNECT method for connection with a IRC server at port 6667
So then I go into options within mirc and put the proxy IP for hostname and enter the port for port. I've tried changing Connection & Protocol, but it seems that it's supposed to be set to DCC and Socks5. The problem is that once I enter this information, once I attempt to connect it still says my IP is banned as if the proxy isn't being used. If there's a way to "enable" the proxy I can't find it.
