Does anyone use VPNs? I have a problem connecting to mIRC while VPN is running, is that a permissions issue?

I believe as part of the irc security certain VPN's/proxies are blocked could be the issue.


What VPN do you use? That way when an admin replies they'll be able to check for you.

Copy the STATUS window lines and paste them. I see no bans.

It connects immediately if I turn off VPN

well, I founds a way to exclude mIRC from using the VPN, so I can run both . Not ideal, but it works

That 'dns pool' isn't a ban. Try connecting to one of the direct IPs:
/server 208.115.205.106
/server 144.217.10.189

Also, in the Status window, see if /dns irc.rencorner.com   shows one of the Ips or something else(when the vpn is running for it).

If you start it up, you can possibly get an idea of what's wrong by doing /debug @debug before connecting. It'll do a popup channel with some info.

got the debug window open to, it's just blank? 

Also, I had to remove mIRC from the exclude list in the VPN to try this. It broke my cracked mIRC, wouldn't let me use it without registering (had to reinstall). Weird stuff

Do you have it set to automatically authenticate when connecting?

And is your "NickServ" account same as your nickname?
