Connection Problem pls assist

Postby muju » Wed Apr 07, 2004 8:36 pm

I have been on efnet server for years and for last 2 weeks ive been getting problems connecting to all efnet servers. The errors ive been getting are:

Closing Link: muju[none@255.255.255.255] (You are not authorized to use this server)


[4:35pm] *** Connect retry #9 efnet.demon.co.uk (6665)
14[4:35pm] -efnet.demon.co.uk- *** Looking up your hostname...
14[4:35pm] -efnet.demon.co.uk- *** Checking Ident
14[4:35pm] -efnet.demon.co.uk- *** Found your hostname
14[4:35pm] -efnet.demon.co.uk- *** Got Ident response

Closing Link: CPE0080c6fab07a-CM00e06f1787ec.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com (You are not authorised to use this server)


This is what i get when i try to connect to any efnet server

you are in the US, try a US server, that's what they are there for
check either http://www.efnet.info/?module=servers for a server near you, or use irc.us.efnet.info

That is the key, it tells you to use that server instead of demon, as it's networkwise close to your ISP (rogers).

it doesn't show up in dictionary.reference.com, which generally has alternate spellings of words (such as colour)
