Cannot communicate with IRC-server

Postby sgofferj » Sun Dec 18, 2011 5:06 pm

Hi,

when I try to connect to an FG IRC, I see the connection chatter, the greetings banner and everything but then nothing more happens.
I can't join any channels, not even /help shows anything.
Tried with konversation and epic.

Any ideas?

Konversation works just fine here. What server are you connecting to ?

I tried all of them... all the same...

Do the FG IRC servers also have some kind of weird pseudo-security system running that scans your address and if you have open ports, don't talk to you?
I had some fun with freenode because their stupid scanner thought I had an IIS running. Well, there is a webserver running at my address but that's 1. intentionaly and 2. an Apache and no IIS...

Problem solved by connecting through SSL.
