using mIRC on a network
Midori Jan-04-01 07:15 AM
My boyfriend and I have our computers networked. His is the host, and my comp is the client. We use Wingate (3.0) and Diamond mulitimedia network cards. I am having trouble connecting to mIRC. I have the latest version of it, and it has no info at all the help files on how to connect using a network. I have Windows98 SE. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Everytime I try to connect to mIRC, i get this error: "No route to host"... (meaning no route to the irc host, I am assuming). I think this means that it is not detecting that I have an internet connection. I don't know if this was the appropriate forum to post this question in, but I'm at my wits end, and I'm hoping someone can help me. thanx

The problem is probably being caused because mIRC requires that some ports be opened in Wingate to allow mIRC connections between your PC and the Internet. See http://www.mirc.co.uk/help/proxies.txt for details. Larry
