If you were trying Sunday night, you managed to catch the server at a bad time. It‘s up and running now, if it doesn‘t work for you let me know and we can walk through the settings.

It‘s actually been pretty quiet lately, hopefully some new blood will stir things up.

Cheers

This Jabbertalk place was a dead end. I‘m ‘pooter illiterate. Come someone direct me to a working site that will allow me to use the chat room here.

Any help is appreciated.

You should be able to download the latest version of Exodus (a free Jabber client) from here:

 http://exodus.jabberstudio.org/daily/setup.exe

If you configure it as per the first post, it *should* work, but let me know if you hit a snag.

Cheers

Tried to reinstall Jabber.

Is it me, or did it get a bit more annoying?

*still waiting for mIRC server*  :D

Which warning?

If it‘s an SSL warning, be sure you enter the server name as "Army.ca" exactly, including the capitalization...

Ok, the instructions were out of date, so I‘ve updated them. Try running through them again, and if you still can‘t connect we‘ll sort you out.

I have to agree, I have tried downloading, installing this thing several times and have not been able to get it going yet. Don‘t like the program at all! It didn‘t set up anything like the directions at the top of this thread

I agree it needs some work - I have to make some time to re-vamp that whole service...

Re the instructions, did you find discrepancies after they were updated? I‘d be glad to update them again if they‘re wrong, but I‘m not sure which sections need correcting...

Cheers

*hit a snag*

I‘ve configured EXACTLY to what was above, and I hit Ok. It then brings me to a connect screen. I click connect, it says connecting...then boom, Disconnected Anyone else have this problem? And as for mIRC, its a great idea. I can set us up with a free channel on any server you guys desire (I prefer gamesnet, but w/e works for u guys) AND get a ChanServ in there. Also, I can more than likely get a GamesNet Java link to the server, if not the channel itself. So the least you would have to do, is follow the link (no download) and type in your name,and #army.ca (or w/e you want the channel named) click connect and taa daa. your in the channel with everyone else. tell me what you think, if you like, give me the name you want and i can have it all up and running in less than 30 minutes (pending on the line-up for channel registering).

I saw someone above claiming to register a channel. i went in, and was alone, not even a ChanServ. It isnt registered if the irc support staff doesnt recognise it, and doesnt have a ChanServ appointed to the channel.

*Update* I‘ve found my proble. And it seems to fix most of the other problems others have been having as well. Its a matter of when installing, make sure to click the SLL box during it, otherwise it wont work.

Is this chatroom still active? I‘ve been going in it but it‘s usually vacant.
