ive read through the sticky on how to use IRC, but i cant seem to connect to irc.mircx.com.
i can connect to plenty of other servers just fine, aniverse, undernet, DALnet etc. when i connect to these servers, it usually fails the first few times, then i think it tries different ports, and suddenly im connected. when trying to connect to irc.mircx.com i cant ever connect, and it seems that its only trying one port.
the "cant connect messege" looks like this:
* connecting to irc.mircx.com (6667)
* unable to resolve server
when i connect to other servers it looks like this:
* connecting to irc.aniverse.com (6661)
* connecting to irc.aniverse.com (6663)
and so on until i connect.
im guessing the change in numbers at the end is the ports the program is trying to use? i have no clue. i turned off all my firewalls. i have 2 computers networked through a linksys router, using port forwarding 6881-6889 to computer 1 and 6891-6899 to computer 2. on either computer, i cant connect to irc.mircx.com. do i need to open or forward more ports if i want my irc client running to its best efficiency?
does anyone have any ideas?
