I want to use mIRC, but at the computer labs, where I am, they have a firewall (I think). Does anybody know how I can get passed it?

Please know that I don't have much knowledge about computers, internet, IRC and firewalls, so don't give me very complex answers :tongue:

I appreciate any help I can get...

If you had read the post carefully, you'd seen that I wrote that I was at a computer lab (at my uni), and usually a student don't have as much access to the system as a network administrator :tongue:

In other words, I can't just disable it :tongue:

Which in essance means you can't use IRC.

If you want to use mIRC, disable the firewall.

If you want to disable the firewall, you have to get permission to use mIRC.

Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

Yeah that, or, you could find a public proxy to connect to an irc server, just be dicrete, as your school might frown on the whole situation.

Or buy a bouncer and config it on a port that isnt blocked

If you're still considering bypassing your school's firewall, I suggest reading this thread before you go any further.


Never compare yourself to others - they're more screwed up than you think.
