Can;t Get IRC to Work

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Tried everything and I get the same message: 'Unable to connect to server'. It says I have a bad username, but I change it about a million times to the most obscure jumble of words and I still get the same thing. Tried different port numbers, everything, and it still won't work. Any ideas?

The client is Gamers.IRC and I'm trying to connect to gamesurge.net.

Some servers require that you have a real name set. Fill out all of the boxes. Check the website for the server to see what their requirements are. It could also be your version of the IRC software. Some servers are really picky.

I did already. Are there any specific ports I must open up? How would I go about doing this in Windows XP?

The ports would be listed in your software... You would have to refer to your service manual assuming you have dsl/cable/satelite.
