I've never used Undernet before, and whenever I try to log on to it I get this message:
"-194.134.5.82- *** Looking up your hostname
-
-194.134.5.82- *** Checking Ident
-
-194.134.5.82- *** Found your hostname
-
Ping? Pong!
-
Your username is invalid.
Connect with your real username, in lowercase.
If your mail address were foo@bar.com, your username would be foo.
-
Closing Link: distorted by Amsterdam2.NL.EU.undernet.org (USER: Bad username)
-
* Disconnected"

By the way, it doesn't matter what my nick is, it always displays the same message. With DALnet down, I need somewhere to resume my IRC activities...

Some Undernet servers reject usernames (User ID) settings in the Ident service (Identd) in mIRC options. Make sure you remove all strange characters (dots, spaces, comas and other non-alphabetical things) from your User ID in File/Options/Connect/Identd/User ID:.

I checked it, and it just says "distorted"
What else would cause this type of problem?

retype your email add in lowercase and make sure there is an @blahblah.fr after your email add. what works for me. just try it.
