Is IRC Down?
« on: August 09, 2006, 06:18:28 PM »
I've been retrying (automatic) since 6:00 EDT to connect to EFnet.  Round robin server search....
Is it just me or is something wrong?

It's you... Any error or just timeouts?
It's not a bug, it's an undocumented and unexplainable feature.
Stick it on your site:

I recommend users NOT use irc.efnet.org as it provides problems. If you cannot connect, try one of these servers:

irc.inet.tele.dk
irc.easynews.com
efnet.xs4all.nl
irc.efnet.nl
irc.efnet.pl
irc.nac.net
irc.inter.net.il
irc.homelien.no
irc.daxnet.no
efnet.demon.co.uk
irc.choopa.net
irc.desync.com
irc.blackened.com
irc.Prison.NET
irc.servercentral.net
irc.dks.ca
irc.mzima.net
irc.colosolutions.net
irc.dkom.at
irc.ptptech.com
irc.arcti.ca
irc.blessed.net
irc.du.se
irc.wh.verio.net
irc.pte.hu
irc.dataphone.se
irc.vel.net
efnet.cs.hut.fi
irc.he.net
efnet.port80.se
irc.umich.edu
efnet.ipv6.xs4all.nl
irc.SHOUTcast.com
irc2.choopa.net
irc.efnet.no
irc.efnet.fr
irc.igs.ca
irc.mindspring.com
irc.umn.edu
irc.ac.za
irc.efnet.ru
chat.efnet.org
ircd.llnw.net
hub.uk
hub.dk
hub.efnet.nl
hub.se
ircd.choopa.net
ircd.efnet.no
hub.il
irc.ipv6.inter.net.il
ircd.nac.net
hub.efnet.us

If you are in the UK efnet.demon.co.uk seems to work OK

OK, so it seem to have been my NAT router.  Weird, tho.  All other, than IRC, traffic was passing just fine.
What's weirder is that IRC was connected when it "just stopped working."

Release/Renew IP address on the Router and it's all good again.  Same Address, better service.  :-\

Thanks for the suggestions.
