Cannot connect to IRC (network issues within OBSD?)
For some reason whenever I try to connect with ircII or irssi, it will not let me connect to ANY IRC server, not even my friend's private one.
But if I switch to say Linux or Windows partition on this computer, I can get on IRC fine with irssi and HydraIRC.
But on OpenBSD with irssi I get like "Connection refused" or with ircII I get a similar message like:
*** Connecting to port 6667 of server irc.freenode.net *** Connection closed from irc.freenode.net: Connection reset by peer *** Unable to connect to server irc.freenode.net
Update: BUT if I use a web service like mibbit.com to connect to IRC on OpenBSD, I can connect fine! I need to get my clients working, though because Firefox takes up a lot of memory more than irssi or ircII
(I just tried xchat too but still same error that I can't connect).
