* Unable to connect to server (Permission denied)
I know there are a lot of posts about not being able to connect but I've only found one other person with the error message (Permission Denied) on trying to connect, and that was on mIRC forums and had no answer. No one has been able to tell me what causes it and how to fix it. It's a new problem, I have been able to connect to Undernet for years and as far as I'm aware I haven't changed anything. I've tried every Undernet server I can find (http://www.undernet.org/servers.php
and mirchelp-undernet.org/servers.html) and on all available ports with the same results. I've tried a fresh install of mIRC which didn't work. I can connect to other networks (Quakenet, DALnet etc) fine. I've tried temporarily disabling my firewall. I've tried DNS look up and then connecting to the IP address of servers. I've tried changing the look up method between Normal and Server etc. I can connect to Undernet with a web based client (mibbit.com) and another computer on my network using the same internet connection is able to connect.
I have no idea what's gone wrong. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
