well if you say this is a big network.... more then likely they have blocked off the 6667 port (IRC port) so that the employees wont spend their work time chatting in IRC...
I know alot of offices do that.... there is a way around that, you can look for a bounce server that runs on a different port that will let you connect then bounce off of that onto the IRC server you want. or you can go home and set up a bounce server yourself to a port that allows your dads work computer to connect then next time you are there test it out

Do you have any ideas where I can find such a bounce server?

I used to have bounce set up on this computer..... but look for one on google or on yahoo.... just look up "bounce server" or even "BNC server"
you should find something or the other.

u can always try using other ports such as 6668 6669 7000 and see if theylet u connect..
if not u will have to use a BNC, Bounce, or port redirect

The problem with a BNC is that you need an account somewhere (to run the BNC) =>>
if you dont have one, looking on yahoo or google wont help you.
There was a nice cgi (i think its called "cgi-irc") that does the job for you if you have a homepage somewhere. Undernet had a link on www.undernet.org which allowed you to stay on irc trough your web browser.
It also might help you to get a free shell which allows you to irc (i think hobbiton.org does that). Just look for "free shell" on google or yahoo and keep in mind that most free shells dont allow you to have background processes (like BNC)
