Hi all,
So I'm quite new here and to using IRC clients. I've never really learned how to use them because there was never a community that I wanted to be a part of. So I have spent the last hour or so learning how to use xChat and I saw yrmt's post in "Rules, Posting Guidlines, and Announcements" about the IRC url and the room. I still can't connect to the server even though I put in that information? Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

I'm getting the following error: (using irssi)
Code:
-!- Mode change [+iwxz] for user zbsd
-OperServ(services@iotek.org)- The session limit for your host o92l.x.rootbsd.net
          has been exceeded.

Code:
zygotb@~/$ mtr -t unixhub.net

zygotb@~/$ ping unixhub.net

I was able to log in to irc.iotek.org but not from my nixers shell.

zed, make sure you use the right port :D irc.nixers.net/6667 (it's / on xchat right?) and then autojoin the channel #nixers.
Note: if you are using your nixers bouncer the address you connect to is nixers.net:1025

zygotb, the unixhub irc/forum is no more,s o you can't connect to it.
Under ZNC Behavior in your settings (on the bouncer) you find is Max IRC Networks Number:,
which is automatically set to 1, did you change it to whatever the amount is you need?

If there are any questions feel free to ask :D

Edit: Make sure you get your bouncer by asking yrmt on the irc (or sending him a PM?)
