Talk to the system admin, chances are he's blocked ports or blocked mIRC. Either way he will know.

99.999%, not to say 100% of school organizations/colleges got everything blocked...!! There is like 0% chance for you to get on irc from school!

How about following your campus rules, and--i know this might be hard but--not use irc?

It's not a campus rule, it just comes as part of the security setup.

there is a reason why it is part of the setup. Ports are not just blocked because they feel like. 9:10 times it intentional, and they dont want you using the port. Either way, this is a help forum. The forum is not here to help you bypass a security setting.

Then it automatically becomes a campus rule. If something is not allowed by the setup of the system, it is not allowed.

So you're saying that if your keyboard is configured wrongly and you can't enter your password for a program that program isn't allowed to be accessed by the rules and you shouldn't go about trying to fix the problem?

Come on how am I going to go on irc? :'(

That first sentence wasn't meant to be humorously muddled a la Seventh Heaven / The Gilmore Girls by the way.

If it's so valid to be IRC at your compus, ask an administrator how you can access IRC, not us. If they aren't making a full attempt to block that port, I'm sure they can help you.

Okay, I'm going to ask a system administrator about it but they still might be of no help.

"but there is alwais a way to turn around it"

Such as? Please tell me some of the ways.

What if I made an offline bot and I could communicate with it in such a way that it would tell me what was happening in the channels?

Please remember that we dont help ppl find ways to evade school/business/network etc policies. If it isnt allowed, helping someone evade a policy could be helping to get them fired/kicked out. NOT something we'd like to be known for.
