G-Line on EFNet - not sure why

Postby subs » Tue Mar 13, 2012 8:07 am

Hello.

Starting today I appear to be banned from all EFNet servers I try to connect to. I normally idle in a couple of small channels and haven't been that active lately so I'm just wondering why my IP appears to be G-Lined? I can PM it to a mod if they can check the reason for the ban for me.

When I try to connect I see the following:

[01:04:45] -> -irc.servercentral.net- *** Processing connection to irc.servercentral.net
[01:04:45] -> -irc.servercentral.net- *** Looking up your hostname...
[01:04:45] -> -irc.servercentral.net- *** Checking Ident
[01:04:45] -> -irc.servercentral.net- *** Found your hostname
[01:04:45] -> -irc.servercentral.net- *** G-lined
[01:04:59] ::: Server error: Closing Link: (*** Banned (cache))

Thanks for your help.

Need more information, such as your nick and full hostmask and IP# in order to check this out.

Hi

I didn't see a way to PM you the information so here it is partially masked:

hostmask: subs@subm*****.org

G-lines rarely last more than 24 hours, so yours should be gone by now or will be shortly.
