I'm still getting errors. I am unable to connect to the server. Tried the java applet and mirc client at school, just tried the java and mozilla chat client at home :D

dunno if this helps. This is the output from the mozilla client

if you could get me the error mIRC gives, that would be great, it sounds like your school is blocking IRC tho.

have you tried connecting using IE? As much as I like Firefox, it definitely still has some issues, especially when it comes to plugin support, such as Java. mIRC will give you the real error, so if you can, try using mIRC if IE doesn't work either.

same errors with IE and mirc :)

Here's a chatzilla screen from my home computer...guess next thing to try is to connect computer directly to cable modem.

Sorry for the slow response, I never get notified when you post to this thread, odd.

You won't be able to ping my firewall :( How long does it take before you get that software abort message once you hit connect? That specific message usually only shows when something on your system is interfering with the connection.
