There are IRC networks that have connection issues when using the Mibbit IRC client.

  • Some of these issues are temporary, and should clear up on their own.
  • Some of these issues are on going, and may or may not be cleared up in what we might consider a 'reasonable' time.
  • Some of these issues are for all intents and purposes, permanent. It does not appear that any change is possible.

DALNet

DALnet appears to allow only 25 Mibbit Clients per server.

  • Sometimes, a single server shares multiple server names.
  • Basically, if you get in you are in, otherwise you get the Too many connections error.
  • Some luck has been had with the following servers:
    • Asia: hotspeed.sg.as.dal.net
    • Europe: arcor.de.eu.dal.net , matrix.de.eu.dal.net
    • US: masters.ix.us.dal.net , novel.fl.us.dal.net , punch.va.us.dal.net , riga-r.ca.us.dal.net , rumble.fl.us.dal.net , swiftco.wa.us.dal.net

Freenode

Freenode does not allow any Mibbit client to connect.

  • Freenode has their own web client.
