I've been having trouble with the server connect dialog in mIRC 7.61. I've had this issue with earlier
versions of mIRC and thought it was fixed, but apparently it hasn't been.
I just added two new servers via the connect dialog. Both servers are in the same group. One of
the servers connects on port +7070, and the other one on port 8909. I have both of these set up
correctly for each server via the connect dialog.
The problem is that, often, the connection that's configured to connect to port 8909 tries to connect to
port +7070, even though port 8909 is explicitly specified and displayed in the server dialog.
The only way I've found to work around this (temporarily) is to go into the connection properties, remove and
reinsert the same port number (8909), then OK out of the dialog. This will work okay for the next session, but
if I subsequently connect using the port +7070 connection, the same thing happens all over again and
I have to reconfigure the port 8909 connection as stated above.
Somehow, the port +7070 is getting misread from one connection to the next, despite what the server port
option indicates. (the second connection always displays 8909 in the dialog)
Thanks and regards.
Correction: The connection for port 8909 is actually the first server entry; the connection for port +7070
is the second one.
