ICQ/ICQ related problem
Hi Joerg Droege
In the past 2 weeks i was chatting on ICQ using Mirc, but then i got disconnected, then i went to the web based and was chatting again but then out of nowhere i got disconnected...since then i can not connect to icq.com and any IRC clients like xchat, mIRC, etc i use will not let me connect, i have not done any changes or configurations to my system...thanks in advance
thanks for your question!
Firt of all, you are confusing 2 things! You were NOT chatting on ICQ, ICQ is an instant messaging client, for more info about it see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icq
Instead you meant to say you were using the ICQ.com hosted IRC servers aka chatrooms which also can be found here: http://chat.icq.com/icqchat/
Well, there are several possibilities, either your ip has been blocked by the admin of the ICQ IRC channels or a firewall or router blocks you from accessing it. More info about this port here:
I have checked the access, the IRC servers are working so it must be either you are blocked or a problem on your side.
Hope this gives you some insight!
All the best!
