If you seem to be completely unable to connect to the network and the servers are up, there are a few things you can try that may remedy the problem.
Try connecting to a specific or different server.
If you're unable to connect successfully, it may be that your connection path to the particular server your client was routed to is down, be it due to ISP problems or router failure; in this case you may be able to connect okay by forcing your client to connect to a specific server by substituting irc. out for a specific server name, e.g. eldrasia.lunarnet.org in your connect information.Try connecting through port 4444.
Some restrictive firewalls - like those in many colleges and universities - block port 6667, the standard IRC port. You may be able to connect by specifying 4444 as the port and connecting to Eldrasia or RPGCafe.Set up SSL and attempt to connect through port 7001 or 7029.
Some particularly restrictive connection setups may block both IRC ports and others included; in this case, you can either contact your system administrator and ask for the port to be opened; in lieu of that a reasonably reliable method of bypassing the problem is to use an SSL-capable IRC client and connect through a standard SSL port. SSL links are fully encrypted and thus generally considered much 'safer' by most administrators and rarely blocked.When all else fails...
Contacting the admins and explaining the problem is your best bet, either through a friend who can connect to the network or else the email at the bottom of this page.
