    Don't mess with jIRC.
    In mIRC , check if you can connect using a different server , different nick and ident. also check if all the options are correct ( if you are using an IRC firewall try connecting without it).

    also if using a firewall or an Internet access control frog check if mIRC is allowed to access the web.

    I've tried every EFNet server that's listed and I still can't connect. Believe me, I tried everything I can think of before posting this rant.

    Using mIRC this is the message I get:
    (06:54:50) * Connecting to efnet.cs.hut.fi (6667)
    (06:54:53) * Unable to connect (Connection refused)
    (06:54:58) * Connect retry #1 efnet.cs.hut.fi (6667)
    (06:54:59) * Unable to connect (Connection refused)
    (06:55:00) * Cancelled connect
    (06:55:00) * Connecting to irc.easynews.com (6666)
    (06:55:01) * Unable to connect (Connection refused)
    (06:55:06) * Connect retry #1 irc.easynews.com (6665)

    Did my company finally decide to close the ports? :(

    Maybe you manged to **** up mirc ( i do that all the time, but i'm "special") , try downloading a fresh copy.

    also make sure there is no program that limits mirc's access to the internet.

    If nothing else works you can always download a port scanner and see what ports are open and what ports are closed...

    I have a feeling they blocked the ports for IRC at work. They did it where I work. :mad:

    Xsivforce , you can try some "creative hacking" but that might cost you your job...

    Think you're right xsiv...with all the changes that are happening and will be happening... Really pisses me off :mad: Now I'll have to get access to install programs and install MSN, ICQ, whatever :p But it's not the same as chatting with you all in #xperience :(

    you need a CGI IRC client (like this one) but one that'll work with EFNet
