IceChat Hammers IRC Servers?
« on: September 07, 2006, 03:38:30 PM »
Hi guys, I've got what seems to be a general questions. I chat on an IRC server that just recently decided to ban the use of IceChat on it, because of the fact that it "hammers" the IRC server by constantly testing the server to produce a latency log.

The IRCops and the server administration won't explain this, and so I decided to come here to ask the question about it. Along with that, is there a way that one can disable this feature on IceChat so that it doesn't do this?

Thanks for your help :)

You can disable this "server hammering" which is quite funny, cuz all it does is send a PING request every 3 minutes for lag checking.

Open up the server editor, and disable "Server Lag in Console" feature.
