Socket Error: 11004 ??
« on: September 16, 2005, 07:05:45 PM »
Hi,
I have just installed IceChat5 and when tried to connect to IRC got following error:

[19:02] * Attempting to connect to mesta.kl.my.dal.net  on port 6667
[19:02] * Socket Error: 11004 : Valid name, no data record of requested type
[19:02] * Connection closed from mesta.kl.my.dal.net


What is that all about? I have set up my firewall to let IceChat5 through ...

Thank you

Snerf

Bad server name, simple as that.
Try another dalnet server, I am sure they have a list on their website.

If you checked out the FAQ on the main site, there is one on Winsock errors under Server Questions.
