Can't get back on IRC :(

Recommended Posts

Well, my IRC window closed, then I tried to rejoin and I got this message:

 

[02:09] Connecting...

[02:09] Unable to connect : java.net.ConnectException : Connection timed out: connect

 

Any idea on what I can do to get back on?

Just pmed you mate, give me a shout on msn if you have any luck. :)

 

If anyone else has any such problems, there are a number of things to try:

 

a) Check that any firewalls on your home network / pc are not blocking the Java client or any ports it uses.

 

B) Reset to ensure that it is not an issue with the application having frozen up (Java can seem to do this from time to time, especially on older systems).

 

c) Use a dedicated non-Java based IRC client (such as MIRC). This is something I would recommend if you intend on making regular use of the IRC chatroom. For more information on this, please consult the FAQ thread in this section or post up a query here. Cheers. :)
