Hello,

Servers have mechanisms to detect drones spammesr and other such baddens on the network. You could have been banned by mistake, or because you have some kind of trojan on your machine that you dont know of which could be on the network spamming or you could have a drone...

Suggestions.. if you use windows.. update your version of windows with the latest hotfixes and service packs. Update your virus scanner with the latest virus definitions. DO a full scan of your system. If you come up clean, download the cleaner from http://www.moosoft.com
Scan your system..
if that comes up clean, contact the server and see if this was a mistake.

Its auto abuse detection afterall.. it could be wrong.

Cheers..

It means "AVOID THE USELESS CRAPPY EFNET SERVER NAMED AS IRC.PRISON.NET" :)

It may depend on the client you're using. As lucy said, try another server.
admin, irc.umich.edu
oper, irc.servercentral.net

it may also be possible that your IP is in the DNSBL (proxy blacklist used by many open proxy monitors on the network).

visit http://www.blitzed.org/proxy to check if your ip is in the list. if it is, go through the steps to make sure you are not an open proxy, then click then link to remove yourself from the list.

then you can use /admin [server.name] to get contact information for the admin of the server(s) you are klined on and ask them to please remove the kline.

otherwise, it is probably an auto-kline for joining a juped channel or doing something that cause spambot notices, like /ctcp'ing large channels (possibly several times) or join/parting channels too quickely. in these cases, it's probably a temporary kline, and i would recommend using another server until the kline expired.

HELP AutoAbuseDetection

Postby Mickey Sabbath » Sat Aug 30, 2003 5:00 pm

I just discovered EFnet has banned me for the identical reason, AutoAbuse Detection.

I found this string and followed the step recommended, including checking for Trojans and checking the "blitzed" blacklist, but neither proved availing. I have no Trojans and my IP address is not on the blitzed blacklist.

I also tried to follow your recommendation about connecting through an alternate hub but I can't seem to figure out how to use mIRC to connect through the alternate routes you list in your posting.

How do I contact the server to ascertain whether I've been banned by mistake?

Thanks in advance for your help.

For contacting server admins, it would all depend on WHICH server you were trying to connect to. If you can get on EFNet on another server, you can type /admin irc.server.name and you will get the server admin contact info for that server. IIRC, this web site is eventually supposed to have that info on its server list, but qurve doesn't have it in place yet. irc.efnet.net and irc.efnet.org are NOT names of servers on the network. In mIRC (and almost all other IRC clients), you can connect to a different server by typing /server irc.server.name ... for example, /server irc.homelien.no . you can type that in any window.

Also, what ISP are you connecting from, if you don't mind saying. Sometimes individual servers ban entire ISPs because of repeated abuse from that ISP and/or there was no response from the abuse department at that ISP. In any case, if you keep trying different servers, you should be able to get on.
