if it is the school who has centrally blocked certain sites, no no geenidee

but maybe experienced school chatters know solutions?

did you try downloading mirc ( http://www.mirc.com ) and installing it on your school's computer and chatting from there with the settings mentioned on the chat page?

Yes, chat4all filters (and bans) users that post URLs ending in .exe and other similar "dangerous" files.
It should only be temporary.

If you get "Null: cannot connect" errors. You must be behind a firewall, or you are not allowed to run java applets.
Please allow "plouf" to run java applets, or check if your system adminstrator allows java applets.

One possible solution is to try a stand alone IRC program such as http://www.xchat.org/ or MIRC

I have been banned that way also.. And i truly hate these filters, cause it does not work properly! i was banned for playing music in the channel, cause the filename was like this: artist-songname-SVCE-vme.mpg and they had the filter set to ban people who mentioned *me.mpg. This caused me to get banned for 2 days, but luckily i managed to find a anonymous proxy to connect with and tell them to remove my ban.

I think that people who click links that is not posted by a trusted source deserve to get infected by those viruses.. Protecting everyone from such extensions does more harm than good and all is thanks to the people who click such links. sadblauw

Today we cant even post a url with .exe in it, so not easy to give people a link to for example a program.

Btw... what exactly was the url you posted? and do you want me to try talking to the admins of chat4all?

must be the free.com wink5
But anyway.. if you use a proxy, then make sure it does not use the default irc ports, cause then it will be imidiately banned.. chat4all checks for open proxys using default ports.

Just search for socks4 and socks5 proxies.. alot of them are dead, so you have to try quite a few before you find a working one.

Eheh. You need to change the settings of your firewall to let you into chat. Is it software on your computer (which brand/product/version?) or is it hardware between your comupter and the phone line?

Both I think... My broadband modem is a firewall but I also have software.. I know how to turn the software off. I'll try it.
