Re: Plusnet IRC Server

Problem solved (for now)
Just dropped PPP session to get a new IP, and this one does have a hostname.
Thanks

Re: Plusnet IRC Server

I wonder if that's what the problem is whenever I can't connect. I think I change the hostname in mIRC (for some reason) so maybe that's why I can rarely connect.

Re: Plusnet IRC Server

I doubt it, I've got my reverse dns set to my own .co.uk and it connects just fine.
I wonder if the new 41.x.x.x IP addresses need adding to the white list?

Probably.  I've just flagged this on the PUG site - but it may take a while to get sorted

Re: Plusnet IRC Server

The IRC server is unofficial, I set it up at the suggestion of a couple of the Plusnet staff over seven (!!) years ago.
IP access restrictions exist but these access restrictions are controlled by the Network Team at Plusnet, so one of the Digital Care Team would need to speak to them about it.

The IRC is restricted due to previous abuse IIRC. I dont expect that to change.

Nothing of the sort, although I do agree that I don't expect it to change. It was restricted because that was the wish at the time... I can't speak for those involved (and I don't think any of them work for Plusnet any more) but they must have had their reasons. If I was privy to the reasons at the time, I can't find them in my email archive.

Apologies, was not trying to give out the wrong impression. If you get bored for 5 mins you should pop in Colin Wink -- any chance of a kick up the backside for StatusBot? Smiley cheers
