Re: Cannot connect to efnet [10053] Software caused connecti

Hey munky and handle with care... so I managed to connect now with Xchat. Maybe my mirc was corrupted or something, I have no idea. But since Xchat (or its really xchat 2/ychat, the free one) is working, I'll just start using this now.

Thanks so much everyone!

Re: Cannot connect to efnet [10053] Software caused connecti

Hey munky thanks for your post. I was able to connect with mibbit the web IRC client. I tried icechat but its not working to connect to any server because of some Active X issue.

This is interesting. Why is mibbit working? Any idea?

Re: Cannot connect to efnet [10053] Software caused connecti

I tried to disable my router firewall and also connect directly to the router with an ethernet cable and this still did not solve the problem.

Please does anyone have any idea how to fix this? This is such a weird problem. Getting this error ONLY with efnet? How can that be?

Re: Cannot connect to efnet [10053] Software caused connecti

Yes I have tried numerous other servers with no luck. As for the antivirus software I use Avast thats fully updated always. Moreover when I bring my system (laptop) to other networks, like hotels during travel, I can connect to Efnet perfectly. So a virus I think is not the cause and instead its a r...

Re: Cannot connect to efnet [10053] Software caused connecti

This is what I suspected as well which is why I added myself to the DMZ, but this clearly did not work. Its strange though that I was able to connect to other servers for other networks. I don't know what else I can do in terms of my router. I have also tried to connect to different irc servers for ...
