Can't get into IRC from work
« on: May 19, 2005, 01:07:34 pm »
Anyone know a way I could get around this?

I work for a bunch of cyber-nazis so I can't install any software on the computer here -- is there some web thingy I could use to forward the port or something???

Thanks!

first
IRC port is not 6007
its 6667 :P
you can use a range betwen 6660 to 6669 in most big networks, not sure about other irc networks..
even some uses 7000 port..
so I suggest you try them all.

Sorry, I wasn't clear....  I was using the web-based client which does seem to use port 6007 (but I could be wrong).

I keep trying different ports through telnet to freenode.net but it keeps saying connect failed >'<img'>

Oh, well -- I'll keep playing with it -- maybe I'll figure out a way.  That or get fired....

I dont know,but just an idea...maybe it means the port on your router,you know,like the ports you have to unlock for emule to work on a computer with connection by router.Does the computer use a router or not? Just trying to help '<img'>

If you are trying to access from work then most likely they have shut down most of the ports.  I'll look into opening up a new port and see if that helps.  Just make sure you don't do anything that would get you in trouble at work! '<img'>

Ok here is a temp fix that should work.  Do not abuse this if you are not allowed on chats at your local!

Go to http://irc.furtopia.org   if the server fails to connect then type:  /server altirc.furtopia.org 80    For the tech users, this uses port 80 and should work almost anywhere!
