Thread: Installing mIRC on kimsufi

  1. #1
    I've got the cheapest kimsufi box from ovh and have installed mIRC but when I try to connect to an irc server it cannot connect. Is this a common problem on this box and is there a way around it? Or have I messed up a setting somewhere (and no, it's not a firewall problem)?

    * Connecting to irc.*****.org (6667)
    -
    * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
    -
    * Connect retry #1 irc.*****.org (6667)
    -
    * Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)

    You haveto go into the manager and allow the port to be opened for irc.

    services/irc filter/click allow and add the ip of the irc server.

    I am having the same trouble and can't find a solution.
    Could you be a little more detailed in your instructions for Windows server 2003?

    I'm having trouble finding irc filter under services,obviously I'm looking in the wrong place.Not under administrative tools I take it.

    Thanks.

    Thanks integral I tried it(to the best of my limited ability) and I couldn't still couldn't get it to work.
    I know that I'm just not doing something very fundamental but bugger if I know what it is.

    Appreciate that you at least tried to help though.The check's in the mail.

    They probably don't want people running botnet servers.

    You have to unblock the port in your server manager using the OVH control panel. (The same place where you reinstall your server, reboot, etc)
