From the sounds of it, you have installed software, like a firewall or such, that is blocking IRC.

That's possible. It may be on the network server too, in which case not much I can do about it. Thanks for replying so swiftly.

I can connect to the server without problems through port 6667.

If you have McAfee AV software, that might be the problem. The McAfee firewall blocks irc traffic by default.

I need some help with my client. I've recently started using IceChat, and everything was ok for a couple of weeks. Then I got the following error:
Quote
ERROR:MDIMain:2060:Function:Form_Load Error Number:429 : ActiveX component can't create object

And this is what I got from the DLL Version Check:
Quote
->> You are not connected to a server ( /say > C:\Windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx version: 6.0.89.88 : Installer Version is: 6.0.89.88 )
->> You are not connected to a server ( /say > C:\Windows\system32\mscomctl.ocx version = 6.1.97.82 : Installer Version is: 6.1.97.86 )
->> You are not connected to a server ( /say > C:\Windows\system32\msscript.ocx version = 1.0.0.18000 : Installer Version is: 1.0.0.4615 )
->> You are not connected to a server ( /say > C:\Windows\system32\msvbvm60.dll version = 6.0.98.2 : Installer Version is: 6.0.97.82 )

It seems to match the first scenario in the first post... so what do I do?

Time for a re-install, make sure it is using admin privs.
