IRC seems nerfed through Espernet?


#1

I’ve been trying to join the #spongedev IRC channel for days (at least a week I think) and the Espernet node/server is not responsive.

I assume it’s just me. Is there an alternative method to get to the #spongedev channel ?

Thanks.

discord :stuck_out_tongue:

otherwise figure out why espernet is blocking you


#3

I don’t think they are blocking me inasmuch as my company is blocking traffic to the IRC server(s).

Bummer.


#4

As @phit mentioned there is also a discord (which is actually linked to irc), but if your company is blocking irc they may be blocking discord aswell…


#5

Yea, I know about discord. I choose not to use it. Thanks. I’ll poke around here and see if the network admins are doing crap to the port.


#6

It looks like network admins at work are filtering IRC. I had to connect another way via WeeChat off my rented Linux box.

Weird


#7

probably because IRC is used quite often as C&C for malware etc, so it makes sense to block it in organization network


#8

Yea, I agree. Used to not be the case here… Maybe they have been tightening things down recently.

OK, Admins can nuke this thread, I think it’s resolved, etc… thanks!
