I get banned all the time for no reason...

Postby imthedan » Mon May 19, 2008 2:44 am

[19:29] * Connecting to 198.252.195.2 (6667)
-
[19:29] -198.252.195.2- *** Processing connection to irc.wh.verio.net

[19:29] Closing Link: 127.0.0.1 (Bad user info)
-
[19:29] * Disconnected
This happens all the time to me. Usually, if I disconnect (56k) it'll fix the problem. I've gotten different ban messages, though. I only use two channels on the server and have never been banned from either, so I don't know why it keeps banning me like this.

Any help is appreciated.

bad user info is usually illegal characters in your ident or other connection info.

if you're using mIRC, make sure you don'y have any non-alphanumeric characters in the ident and email configuration fields.

sorry, the 'Bad user info' is from an xline ban. change your 'Name' info.
