Are you using X-Chat Azure or just X-Chat for windows?

Hey Zachary!

Alia Shields seems to have had the same problem with X Chat for her Mac so it's not just you! But... I do know you're using the Windows version. :) If you see the HOL Handbook, it does say Windows just by X Chat but you can also use mIRC! That's what many of us HOL members with Windows systems use. I would highly suggest using mIRC on your Windows!

So just think about trying mIRC and see if you can connect with that program. :D

Use mIRC for Windows for sure! If you have any problems I have been going on IRC for years and have helped others with their connection issues so feel free to PM me or post here again! Make sure that you are typing the server name correctly and your firewall isnt blocking the application. :) Good luck!
