#569 closed Defect (Fixed)

Can't connect to

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: timothy
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Blocker Keywords:


Connecting to any server doesn't work anymore.

All I get in the console is this:
NICK anonymous
USER anonymous 0 * anonymous

after that it immediately disconnects. I don't know if it's a "real" bug but the latest stable version of Colloquy works fine with the network and also the beta released in October or November. Maybe it's a bug in their server-software or some misconfiguration there but I guess it's not that hard to fix that in Colloquy.

This looks like a server change. I can't connect with the old version or the new one.

The old version shows this:

NICK xenon
USER timothy timothy-hatchers-computer.local Timothy Hatcher
NOTICE xenon * If you are having problems connecting due to ping timeouts, please type /notice 93AA62A8 nospoof now.
093: PING
ERROR Closing Link: xenon[] (You are not authorized to connect to this server)

Maybe complain to the network admins?

the "you are not authorized" part is somewhat explained here:

but just like anonymous i dont event get to that point, all i see is

USER Alex 0 * Alexander Kempgen

and then it disconnects again

comment:3 Changed 13 years ago by akempgen says:

Usermode +c

If your client has problems with the * and ! prefixes and there are no patches for your client or you don't want to install one there is another possibility.
You can turn off the new prefixes. This means Channel Founder and Channel Admin are no longer shown as * and ! but as @ for Channel Operator. Therefor you have to set user mode +c for your nick:

´/mode <dein_nick> +c´

You can connect via port 6660 to any server in euIRC instead. Then the user mode +c is set automatically during connect.

therefore possibly related to #558

Problem is still there in the latest nightly. I don't think it is related to the * and ! prefixes. I have used them in older versions of Colloquy for a long time without problems.
