I downloaded the mIRC client and set everything up the way the guide suggests. But all I get is this.

* Connecting to irc.swcombine.com (6667)
-
-irc.swcombine.com- *** Looking up your hostname...
-
-irc.swcombine.com- *** Checking Ident
-
-irc.swcombine.com- *** Found your hostname
-

Then it never connects. It just sits there and eventually shuts the program down. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a problem with your internet connection; make sure if you have a firewall, that it's allowing the program and the port. You can also try connecting to irc.swc-irc.com or using a different port (oprn ports: 1080, 5000, 5555, 6660-6670, 8080), in case that helps.

I tried changing ports. I've checked my firewall. Unless I missed something...it should work. But it won't. It always says the same thing.

Doesn't look like you tried a different port, or the other address.

/server irc.swc-irc.com 5555

For example.

Oh I did. I tried all the ports. I used 1080, 5000, 5555, 6660-6670, 6667, and 8080. I just thought it would be pointless to post up each individual instance because it all says the same thing. The only thing that changes is what port it says I used.

Have you tried connecting to other IRC servers?

Have you tried connecting with another IRC client?

Well I have tried other clients. Eight of them to be exact. And I have tried with other servers but nothing works.

I had no problems accessing swc's IRC until the server reset today. Now as soon as I try to join, I get this.

[10:56pm] * Connecting to irc.swcombine.com (6667)
-
[10:56pm] * Disconnected
-
[10:56pm] * Connect retry #1 irc.swcombine.com (6667)
-
[10:56pm] * Disconnected

It does the same thing to me on Trillian and Java chat.

Maybe its a router if you use one. I know we had a router that prevented the use of ptp programs unless you deactivated something - that could be your issue if it really is not working.

You could also try the various java IRC programs that some faction sites/forums have, see if that gets around your issue.

I had no problems with my router (and I have changed nothing)... it doesn't make sense that it started today when I have not altered any setting on my PC.

EDIT: It has to be my computer, sorry to be a bother. Laptop connected fine.

Johhny, have you tried unistalling MIRC deleting everything, and then redling it and installing it?

Johnny, if you cannot connect to other servers or with other clients, then I suppose it's a problem with your internet connection or your firewall (most likely the second one). Have you tried using the java chat client on SWC's chat page?

I have tried the java based ones from different websites. I have tried uninstalling and deleteing every irc file I have on my computer than reinstalling one. I have tried messing with my firewall (even turned it off to see if it would work). I have messed with my router. Nothing. I get nothing. It's rather frustrating lol.

Have you tried contacting your ISP about that problem? Maybe the block is on their side?
