connection problem always

Post by lordsteven »

I've been using this online IRC, not the MIRC client because I'm at the office and downloading programs are restricted. For some reasons, I cannot cannect to the server. I've tried all servers and it all seem to not work at all.

This is the message appearing both US and EU:

"Unable to connect : java.net.ConnectException : Connection timed out: connect"

Because I was able to connect but since yerterday it was so messed up. Hope to hear from those who can help me.
Can anyone help me, please? I would really appreciate that. Thanks!

Seems like outgoing connections to 6667 and other ports used for IRC have been blocked at your office. Ask the IT staff there.

Are you positive that this is the case? Is there anyway to resolve this problem? Thanks!

Since there are restrictions on downloading/installing I think we are safe to assume that there are also restrictions set in place for popular chatting services such as IRC yahoo msn etc..

Anticipating your next question, no you cannot evade those restrictions.
