Postby akiru » Sun Dec 05, 2004 3:56 am

Ive tried some of the other servers and changed the ports respectively when doing so but cant seem to connect to Polarhome's IRC network. Someone clue me up on this? :)

When I try and connect to irc://irc.polarhome.com:8080 using chatzilla I'm told:

=== *** Looking up your hostname...
=== *** Found your hostname (cached)
=== *** If you are having problems connecting due to ping timeouts, please type /quote pong B9EB2053 or /raw pong B9EB2053 now.
=== You have not registered

I have registered though. Ftp, not shell though. Is this only open for shell users?

The IRC server doesn't know if you're a shell or an FTP user. that message comes up due to some error.

my suggestion; mIRC / IRSSI / BitchX / XChat
Plenty of very good IRC clients around, no need to use sub-standard crap like chatzilla ;)

yes, that's right. Should it work for me?

I'm also trying xchat, but not getting any better results:

* Looking up irc.polarhome.com
* Connecting to gate.polarhome.com (81.216.198.11) port 8080...
* Connected. Now logging in...
* Disconnected (Connection reset by peer).

I dont know if that even exists anymore. Best bet is to get a shell and setup your own bnc.

I think its firewalled.

People often forget that the whole polarhome network is ran by 1 person with a family + child as well as a fulltime career.

The likes of the mods/admins on the forums, we dont have access to anything other than yourself except for denis with mandrake as he owns it.

Hy, I'm new to polarhome, but I would like to know when or if the server (bnc service) will be fixed because I don't want to look for a shell account right now because they cost... and I would really want to use polarhome's services. Thanks!

No, I don't think it will be enabled again due to abuse.
