Shroomery IRC chat not working...
    #4668572 - 09/16/05 04:16 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I had downloaded mIRC awhile back and I'm afraid it is causing my computer to not allow me to connect. It won't even let me use Java chat. Instead, this is what I get
Code:
Unable to connect : java.net.SocketException : Software caused connection abort: connect 


I have removed mIRC, but the problem still persists. Is there anything I can do to fix this, and be able to use chat again?

Hey,

I think the mIRC issue is a red herring, I doubt it would affect your ability to connect to chat. It could be a problem with your Java installation, or some sort of firewall / internet security suite like ManicDelirium said.

As a first step I would probably download and install the latest version of Java to rule that out as the cause of the error. Be sure to disable any firewall you have installed, and make sure your internet connection settings are properly specified. You could also try connecting to the chat room here to see if it's an issue specific to our server. I'd be surprised if none of these steps work to get things resolved, but please let me know if you continue to experience problems.

Peace,

-Y

I think it may be an issue with the server. That other site you provided a link to worked. I'm still getting the same error message on the Shroomery's chat.

I did both things Ythan said, and it still won't work. I'm positive that damn mIRC software had something to to with it. I was getting similar error messages when I tried to use mIRC a few weeks ago. My software had expired and it wouldn't let me connect. I deleted mIRC and I believe all of its components. Do you think the program may have done something to my registry maybe? My firewall and port settings are fine, and to my knowledge haven't changed.

I think it is an issue specific to the server. Am I banned or something? I have downloaded 3 or 4 different IRC clients so far, and none of them will let me connect to the Shroomery's IRC server. I can connect to other servers, though.

Yes. I think it is an issue specific to the Shroomery. I don't know what could be causing it. I downloaded a newer version of mIRC, and it works, but it will not connect to the Shroomery. And none of the other chat clients or Java Applets work with the Shroomery either.

is that the message from mIRC? I've gotten it before, ping timeouts and that.


What's the error when you try to connect with java?

Yes, that is the mIRC message.

The java message is in my first post above.
