Trouble joining the SciOly chat.

Postby geniusjohn5 » January 8th, 2019, 8:32 pm

When I try to join, a message pops up saying, "Error Connecting (DNSBL blocked (67.252.64.232))"
The biologist speculates, "What's the meaning of life?"
The physicist asks, "In the universe, does matter really matter?"
The chemist replies, "I shall find solutions to both questions."

That is out of our control as we use a third party IRC network, which appears to have blocked your IP address for some reason. Your best option may be to contact the network from their website and inquire about any bans.

You could try using the actual website at kiwiirc.com but i'm not sure if that'd help.

Client used won't resolve banned connections. It's like trying to access a website blocked by your ISP by using Safari instead of Chrome.

If you are accessing through a shared network, e.g. at a school, it is possible another individual at your school violated rules of the server.

Try using a VPN to bypass the IP ban.
