Can't connect here either.

 

It appears to be a problem affecting a wide range of people. Unfortunately I can't see any pattern in it - the people connected are from around the world, using entirely different ISPs and connecting via both the Java and various dedicated IRC clients. :(

i left mine on overnight and at 11:36 i got disconnected and on 13:53 i rejoined from the auto reconnect.

 

think the server was a bit poop at the time.

Dunno if this helps at all...

 

I sometimes find that I can't connect on my desktop PC, for example, but I find I can connect just fine on my laptop.

I get exactly the symptoms FW is describing.

I try connecting using mIRC and the java applet.

 

I dunno what this means but is seems like the problem is something at my end rather than the remote end.

 

I've had this happen about a dozen times and connecting on a different PC will always work. No real idea why though. Sorry.

Okay, Part of the internet magics of IRC doesn't always work, the xombo domain is dependant on the host of xombo's website so connecting to irc.xombo.com doesn't work if the website is out for any reason cos it won't redirect you to the server, irc.arniesairsoft.co.uk points to irc.xombo.com too so any problem you experience connecting to xombo with mIRC or trillian etc will more than likely occur with the java ap as well.

 

However typing "/server 72.20.27.124" in any IRC client should solve this problem, assuming the server is actually running.
