ERROR :Closing Link: (Connection Timed Out) - 09/10/04 11:03 PM

Hi all.
I just gave a shot at creating a bot with Python. All was working fine, but then I got the following error while being connected to the IRC server:

Code:
USER CeruleanBot bot.example.com bot.example.com :CeruleanBot
NICK CeruleanBot bot.example.com
NOTICE AUTH :*** Found your hostname, welcome back
NOTICE AUTH :*** Checking ident
NOTICE AUTH :*** No identd (auth) response

ERROR :Closing Link:  (Connection Timed Out)


And then it just stops running.
Can someone explain whats happening?

Thanks for your time.
Paul

your server needs a connection with ident enabled to connect to that server. dunno how in python though.

Sure, you need to respond to an ident request, reading the ident rfc might help smile
