Re: mIRC firewall problem
Here you mention that one of the admins said that they didn't change anything with the policy. Why didn't you just ask her if there is any reason they would block it? They are probably not specifically disallowing default irc ports(since she seemed to have no clue, or at least didn't say anything about blocking it), but there is not likely to be a rule specifically allowing the traffic. Some firewalls are setup by Admins with a catch all "Block all traffic" rule, and above that, there are rules that explicitly allow certain types of traffic. This is why I say that they could be unintentionally blocking it. However, chances are, someone thought it not too wise to allow IRC. There are bunches of exploits, virii, and trojans that work with and through IRC. We don't allow it either.
I have no problems with my current internet connection and my DNS is work fine. I ask our Administrator and she told us she didn't change any policy in the firewall. How can I solve this problem and make my mIRC connected and online again? I need help on this. By the way Im using mIRC 6.03. and the default port is 6667. In the firewall support option: I used both SERVER & DCC and protocol socks4. Any suggestions and help are very welcome. Thanks in advanced. -- bunkerbuster ---
