You know, Zoom, this is exactly what I need. I'm very pictorial minded and find it very hard to follow written instructions. Sad, I know ...

LNC 4 EVER, are you using an undernet server? The real name or not shouldn't matter, though I have a really ancient version of mIRC, but I doubt the name is the problem. Most people get hung up at using the wrong server, I think.

have been trying to get connected to a server. I went to the website and installed mIRC6.17.exe.
Haven't been able to get connected.
On the info screen it asks for Full Name, do I put in my real name. I did'nt do that. Could that be the problem? Help please.
Make sure you are using an Undernet server and for some reason, the European servers seem to work better. Sometimes you just have to keep trying. And you don't have to use your real name.

Thanks Widget and Chris. I'll keep trying. I'm totally uninformed about this kind of thing. I will try all of the servers on the drop down list. I've printed out these instructions and the ones on the website but I haven't had any luck so far.
Your ep viewings sound interesting. I would love to join you and I would like to be there for Dean's chat.

LNC 4 EVER, I just use where it says "Undernet: Random US server" or you could also use "Undernet: Random EU server." That way it'll just pick a server for you.

We're on IRC every night starting around 9PM eastern time, so you don't have to wait for the next episode viewing to try it out smile

Thanks Widget, I tried all of the ones that said undernet. On every one I got message 'connection refused'. Today I spoke to my internet server and the Geek Squad at Best Buy (when I went to get third season L&C) and they both thought it probably is my Norton Internet Security or a firewall. They suggested I disable Norton and try to get on. Not sure I want to do that.

4Ever, no you don't have to disable your Norton to get on. The Geek Squad is not always right. We got on with full Norton firewall and have an even bigger firewall now and it still works.
Here's an important tip: What the undernet is the excess space on large university servers. So if it's class time, they won't let you on because you are not a student and have no priority. That is why the EU servers work best because it is the middle of the night. Keep trying different undernet servers.
Good luck
Artemis

I never have a problem connecting, day or night (unless it's the middle of a netsplit or something) so I have no idea what to tell you frown Sorry.
