Cant connect to Undernet

Post by fauxpas1900 »

I have been unable to connect to Undernet for many days now.

irc.undernet.org (connection timed out)
eu.undernet.org (connection timed out)
us.undernet.org (connection timed out)

The only server i can connect to is elsene.be.eu.undernet.org but this server says "(No Authorization - use another server)"....

What is the problem?

I have tried all the servers in http://www.undernet.org/servers.php but they ALL are timing out....

Please help.

All you can do in this situation is call your internet provider and tell him about the problem - ask him to make some verifications.
Sometimes internet providers block user access to undernet, why? don`t know but the best thing is to ask for verifications.

You can also try to connect via web client from http://www.undernet.org and see if you get the same error.

Good luck

I just asked a friend in the USA to ping 'irc.undernet.org' and 'us.undernet.org' and she says 'request time out' to both.............is undernet working????

She uses CABLEONE and is based in Kansas, USA....and us.undernet.org was timing out for her....so was irc.undernet.org and eu.undernet.org.

traceroute would be better, all the servers are firewalled against things like DoS attacks, so pings will never work :(,and better test even for them is to actually try to connect. in the end the advise to check with your ISP is still the best advise.

Yes, you are right.

Apparently not all undernet servers are firewalled

Obviously if you are at the same ISP, a ping will get through, as for DDoS, it's still DoS, because the extra D is just defining the type of DoS... (Distributed) Denial of Service

All the servers are fire-walled, however since they are all hosted by different ISP's each ISP set's up their firewall in their own way. ;)
