dceite : Check ur firewall and make sure mIRC is getting through it. next go to mIRC options and check "LOCAL INFO" in this dialog put it ur IP / HOST and set the "Look up method" to "Normal".

Now setup ur Nick, username , email and also the Ident field (some server use ident based authentication).

if know your server then type /server <servername>:<port> press enter it should connect now. If you need to download stuff and u have a firewall blocking ports then either u switch off ur firewall for a while or forward some ports.

mIRC would reject .EXE files so check the DCC Ignore settings.


for rest of the info check

mIRC firewall / router settings

General mIRC help

You can connect to DALnet Or Undernet.

Give some Nickname & Press connect, If you are not able to do then
type all these servers.

/server mesra.dal.net
/server jade.dal.net
/server speedtech.dal.net

Let me know if u need any help.
