Too Many Connections Problem

Postby Mad Matty G » Mon Feb 16, 2009 8:05 pm


I'm behind a university firewall, and i'm guessing i'm not the only one using efnet IRC b/c i'm getting the too many connections line whenever i try to login now. Is there any way to add more users for our static IP? Thanks!

different servers have different I:lines (the configuration that defines how many connections are allowed per IP or network).

try different servers (listed on, and if all else fails, contact the administrators of your closest IRC server and see if they can create an I:line for your university that allows more connections per IP.
