HE's IRC server
« on: August 12, 2008, 11:44:15 AM »

Well, it's not just HE's that the problem exists with, but it's the one that I really want to connect to. I posted this here for two reason: (1) I already have an account here, (2) It is HE's server after all. :D

I'm using KVirc to try to connect to irc.ipv6.he.net on efnet.org. However, it all ways gives me a socket error: connection timed out. Here's my traceroute to the server.

  1       <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  home.core.arcticfire.net [2001:470:1f07:6c5::]
  2       34 ms    38 ms    50 ms  2001:470:1f06:6c5::1
  3       41 ms    42 ms    72 ms  gige-g3-8.core1.nyc4.he.net [2001:470:0:5d::1]
  4      122 ms   111 ms   123 ms  10gigabitethernet3-1.core1.sjc2.he.net [2001:470:0:33::1]
  5      115 ms   124 ms   114 ms  gige-g1-1.core1.fmt1.he.net [2001:470:0:2f::1]
  6      112 ms   112 ms   114 ms  irc.ipv6.he.net [2001:470:0:6667::2]

If someone could maybe help me out here, that would be great. Also, I have this in my router's iptables, I'm assuming this means it's not firewalling IPv6 traffic.

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
ACCEPT     ipv6 --  anywhere             anywhere

I'll mention this to the guy who's hobby it is to deal with that efnet server.

It is a non-priority service that only 1 engineer looks at.

Hi,

What IP are you connecting from and what port are you attempting to connect to?  If you would like help troubleshooting this you can reach me on efnet as nyt.

After troubleshooting this on IRC it appears that KVIRC shortens the IPv6 address in the wrong place.

[15:29:43] Contacting IRC server irc.ipv6.he.net (2001:470::6667:2) on port 6667


The actual address is 2001:470:0:6667::2

irc.ipv6.he.net has IPv6 address 2001:470:0:6667::2
