IRC down?

Postby undrwater » Thu Jul 01, 2021 7:45 pm

I can't connect to the IRC server anymore. Freenode is lost.

I'm attempting from Souther California, and I can't ping either irc.flightgear.org or de.irc.flightgear.org. It resolves to the following IP address:

Code: Select all
205.178.189.131


If I use a web browser to reach irc.flightgear.org, I can see the nginx (presumably) "It Works!" message.

Any thoghts?

I can ping it, but opening "irc.flightgear.org" in a browser tab gives:
It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.


Some time later: Installed an IRC client and managed to connect, see the channels and that there are users there, for example 26 on #flightgear.

It's up now. Must have been a temporary resolution issue.

*Sigh of relief* (Not that I use it a lot, but still.) :D

I was able to connect using irssi. Can't using konversation (I get a registration timeout error).

On the wiki, there is an instruction to register a nick, however when I try, I get:
Code: Select all
[/msg nickserv help

Code: Select all
16:02 -!- nickserv: No such nick/channel


Not many people are in there these days. Perhaps it's best to ask here?

Nick- and ChanServ went down a couple of days ago. I suppose the maintainer is on vacation or such. I am confident they will be back in the foreseeable future.
