No, I didnt think he was withholding, I just thought he should have read the apology before he jumped on someones ass.

Again to clarify the problem I was having:

I would ONLY recieve the error durring DCC. Send or Chat. So, in my case it is related TOTALLY to DCC. So therefor, it is involved in my questions/comments. I feel I was very clear that this was happening only durring DCC in Dalnet. I know you read this, because you got angry because I wasn't happy with previous responses.

Well unfortunatly the problem has rebegan. I was speaking with my ISP, and we changed the DNS servers, and them only and it failed to work. When I put the DNS servers (TCP/IP) back to auto detect, as they previously were, I recieved the same problem. I inturn recycled my modem, and computer reboot, and installed 5.81 - The problem was still there. ONLY IN DCC SENDS AND ONLY ON DALNET STILL - then I did as I had before, I deleted all copies of Mirc.exe and Mirc32.exe and reinstalled. The problem was not solved. I am currently speaking with my ISP about this problem, however it appears to me, because the only changed I had made was DNS, the it would STILL be like I said DNS related. But unfortunatly, I am still plagued by this problem. If I find any solution, I will be sure to post it.

I am tring to help just like you are, I felt with 100 posts on the subject, someone would say something that could solve the problem completely. I understand it is different for everyone, but I still think a good description of what occurs specifically to cause the error is the FIRST step in solving it. That was not posted anywere on the site I could find until now. Thanks for that! I will be sure to update you, like you I just want people to be able to enjoy IRC without errors.

Thank you for the info you pass along.... as i said a few posts ago, user input is always a help. Some also say its only during dcc, others have it any time, and others never have it happen at all. Others have resolved it by router firmware upgrades or turning off xp's firewall. The majority of users have winxp, with a few having win2k.

Others have said it happens on all networks, not just one, so yes, you are the only one to say it only happens for you on DALnet. Many have however, as i also said, found that it only happens to them when on certain servers. Have you noticed that?

I believe I said earlier that the problem had been resolved when I disabled XP's firewall. Over the last few days, I found this is not entirely true. I had been using mIRC 6.03 to connect to EFnet, which no longer seems to have the problem, but 5.9 to connect to DALnet. After switching to 6.03 for both, I found that the problem still happens on DALnet.

Again I want to stress that it does not happen when using mIRC 5.x, only with 6.x, so please don't respond saying "DALnet is having problems." I know that, and if this were related to it it would happen regardless of which version I use.

I don't expect an answer this time. I just wanted to everyone know that disabling the XP firewall did not fix it for me. It seems that everyone who has this error finds a different problem and thus a different solution. I will thus be looking into my specific problem further when I find time. Thanks for the help.

I think you can safely rule out DALnet. I've never been on DALnet apart from when I tried to connect a few times just out of curiosity, to see if I could. I got this error on my usual network, using WinXP Home, and mIRC 6.03. Since I uninstalled XP, I no longer get the error, so for me, I can only assume it was that that was causing the problem.


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

Whether it helps you or not, when i spoke with jlowe420
in channel on DALnet, i suggested he connect to a server port other than 6667 and also to connect using the servers numeric rather than alpha. That seemed to solve the problem for him. Wouldnt hurt to try it.

I've tried other ports (as DALnet seems to allow a lot of them), and I always connect using the server's IP address instead of its DNS.

Like I said though, everyone has different problems. What doesn't help me will help others.

cool cool cool
I want to thank ParaBrat for his awesome help with my problem when it happened again. Because of all the things that fix the problem, it is soooo odd, and I know different for everyone. Like he said in the previous post, I tried connecting to an IP instead of the host (ex 66.66.66.66 instead of irc.dal.net.) also I stopped using the port 6667 - connected with 7000 -- and again BAM! the problem was solved. Thank you very much ParaBrat, I couldnt have done it with out you. I am happy there are individuals like you out there for people with probs.

Keep up the great work

You're quite welcome, its always nice to hear a thank you and i'm glad the prob is solved for you smile (er, altho... i'm a her not a him *chuckle* )

Since what works for one person doesnt for another, all we can do is tell ppl to try the various things that have been found. Input on what works/doesnt work is a big help to others, thanks!

No, I really haven't noticed it specifically happening on one server and not the next. When it was occuring, it would happen no matter where I was connected. But, like I said in an earlier post connecting with an IP instead of the host name and using port 7000 instead of default 6667 stopped the error for the second time. I am sure I will be back when it happens again, and I will let you guys know what fixed it then! hehe

Thanks ParaBrat for your help!

I have exactly the same problem:

I am using mirc 6.03 with windows xp pro. Everything worked fine until I decided to enable the built-in xp firewall. After that I was getting disconnected all the time with the "[10053] Software caused connection abort" error. Disabling the xp firewall again solved the problem. But since I'm not happy until I know the reason for a problem, I enabled the xp firewall log to see what really causes the disconnect. That's what I've found so far:

Every time I got disconnected, the firewall log showed several dropped tcp connection attempts from the irc-server to my computer. Now that is quite strange, because why should the irc-server ever try to establish a connection with me. Here's the details...

From the firewall log

And the netstat output at the same time
Code:
Active Connections

  Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
  TCP    217.162.160.90:4154    151.189.0.165:6665     ESTABLISHED
  TCP    217.162.160.90:4155    209.133.9.62:6667      ESTABLISHED


As you can see, I was connected to two different irc-servers, and I got disconnected from both of them at the same time. So its definitely not a problem with the servers.

Now the interesting thing is, that the xp firewall obviously thinks the irc-server is trying to establish a tcp connection on the port 4154 (and 4155). But as you can see in the netstat output, there already is a connection on these ports. Thats the connections I established when first connecting to the irc-servers.

Somehow this all makes no sense to me... maybe someone here as an idea what causes this.

i have no answer to why it does this but if u also have msn messanger and other software of the like ...... u may also take not that not only does ur mirc lose connection but ALL internet connected programs loose connection on this when that xp firewal is enabled ...... so it cannot be mirc causing this ..... personally i think its some messed up way windows has gone about making thier firewall

for some, for others only mIRC is effected, and thats without any firewall at all with win2k pro instead of xp, connecting to an ip instead of a host, useing port 7000 instead of 6667.

there seem to be alot of different causes for different ppl for this problem which make it that much harder to track down. all in good time though.

Hi - I've never had much of a problem with this fault until last week...now when I go idle for a few hours, I come back, and whenever I type something, mIRC disconnects and I have to reconnect. This is so frustrating as nothing in these forums has worked. This is obviously a serious mIRC error as none of my other applications have any problems. I am running WinXP with firewall disabled, and I have a very stable ADSL connection. aghrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I've had the same problem with 2k pro, xp pro & server 2003.
When it happens to me, it's only mIRC that is disconnected.
Also only with mIRC 6.x.

I'm usually connected to 3 but sometimes 4 networks .. sometimes up to 35 channels. I retired 6.03 for a while and instead, ran 5.91 x 4 (one for each network), joined all channels (35). I ran them that way for 2 weeks without seeing this at all (I logged of course).

So, with the results of this experiment, I couldn't help but to think it was mIRC 6.x, so I fired up another machine with WinME installed on it and ran mIRC 6.03, connected to all 4 networks and joined all 35 channels. It ran and stayed connected for 9 days (yes, this is possible with WinME when it's sitting there doing absolutely nothing but 1 application lol) until my connection was dropped due to line repairs outside my house.

This leads me to think that 1) The problem doesn't actually exist but only in our heads lol or 2) The problem could be with windows and mIRC 6.x *shrug*

I wonder if the problem could be with these versions of windows and after X simultaneous connections by 1 application, (IRC Servers, DCC Connections, Sockets .. whatever) .. maybe ?

perhaps the actual answer on dalnet is the fact that you need todo a /dccallow +nickname for the receiving party

Its serverside and not configured in mirc btw, that is probably your problem with dcc's

the dccallow on DALnet is for certain file types. not dccallowing the nick will block the file and send msg with explanations... it wouldnt disconnect someone with 10053 error.
