I can't seem to get up on freenode.net am using Xchat.
Have tried irc.freenode.net/8001 and irc.freenode.net/6667
but connection refused.

Is it just me, or anyone else has/had this problem ?


* Looking up irc.freenode.net
* Connecting to chat.freenode.net (32.1.25.240) port 8001...
* Connection failed. Error: Network is unreachable
Cycling to next server in FreeNode...
* Disconnected ().
* Looking up irc.freenode.net
* Connecting to irc.freenode.net (32.1.25.240) port 8001...

Both work for me. The message implies that the DNS lookup has happened
OK, but the connection attempt has failed. Usually this message
indicates a local problem. Can you connect to any websites?

Cheers,

Have just installed Konversation and tried that.
Worked first time.

Must be an Xchat problem at this end.

Thanks anyway. You were right - connection but no IRC.
