* Connecting to irc.sorcery.net (7000)
-
Local host: kit-s (130.111.255.52)

Perhaps you need to speak to your network administrator about allowing access from your dorm?

Do you get the same problem if you use your laptop in the office?

someone just told me that there is virus going around the dorm netowrk that travels through the port that mIRC works on and that this is what its most likely causing my problem. Can i use a different port and if so, which one?

We do not help with evading school/work/college/university blocks, especially in this case where they have done it for security reasons. I don't know of a way to do it though.

Short of asking an IT teacher for some help with setting it up, if they know how, I can't think of anything you can do. They may open the ports soon once they have eradicated the virus threat.

Hope you get on soon smile
