just to be clear: do you just wanna use irc as a client or running an ircd?

Just as a client; trying to connect my newly compiled smirc to the nekochan irc server and I get a response back but it times out "waiting for authentication," it used to work just fine for me back in the days when the Internet was all friends, I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've tried to irc since I started running iptables on my Internet gateway, which, I guess makes it an Internet firewall now. It's just a circa-1997 Pentium Pro 200 with 2 NICs, a wireless card and a dialup modem running Slackware 14...

a few irc things have changed. if you haven't used smirc for so long it might just not work anymore. you could simply turn the firewall off for a moment and try then. that'll instantly tell where the problem is.

one of these changes for example is that irc servers now require an initial pong after you sent the USER line. older irc programs don't have that.

Oh good grief, is there an updated RFC that describes that? :lol:

Just kidding! I know how to search RFCs, looks like 1459 and 2812 are relevant, with numerous websites from the Peanut Gallery chiming in... :shock:

I bailed on the IRC channel - lots of trolling and circular conversations - nothing fun in the least.

Yeah I tend to pop in once in a while but this is on and off... Once every few years I will stick around for a few weeks or months. This is one of those times. The last time was circa 2010, and before that 2007...

Here's a first. I couldn't join #nekochan last night because the channel was full.

Mind you at any given time more than half the connected users have been idling for over five years. When is the last time a janitor went through?
