    I can never connect, I have Java Virtual Machine and the whole pack installed, and I'm not quite sure, is it me doing something wrong, or whatever. Either way, please help. Here is a snap shot of what goes on...

    If you are behind a firewall, you need to open port 113. This will allow for ident to be accessed. Also, but not absolutely sure, since jIRC doesn't haven't ident installed with it, you might need to download ident. Try the attached. Good luck.

    Or use Mirc instead of a java applet

    Yes, screen name, and full name is always filled in. Say, I put Nick M for both, and it does the same thing. Appears that I have Identd installed; look here...

    Hmm, never saw that before. Take xsivforce's advice, download mIRC. It's much better the jIRC anyway.

    Will do, see if I can get that to work.

    Also, I'm surprised, since this is a clean windows install...

    Thats the problem i keep telling [e]-Punk about using the irc.efnet.org random site resolver. It will sometimes bounce to servers that have either limit access by physical locaiton, IP mask, or even country; or limit access to only users with identd (most plain jIRC users dont have a server running identd). I think we should change the menu to only select servers that have open access lines and do not require identd, so that all users can get on.
