:xthrow:       It says it found my hostname but needs an ident & promptly logs off... what's that when it's at home & how do I a) provide it & b) know what it is?

Oh fuck, Jerhume, the only thing I can suggest is rebooting.  Sometimes that's all it takes, and sometimes it's a firewall prob.  Are you using internet explorer to connect?

See if that works, and if you have internet explorer browser, try using that to connect to the chat button, sometimes rebooting has helped ident probs, and sometimes a firewall setting is too high and has to be lowered.  That's about all I know about that kind of prob.

I know Catcharm, maya and I have had the prob on occasion, rebooting seemed to help as does using internet explorer browser. I assume you're trying the java portal. Have you thought about d/l mirc an giving that a go?

I a couple of times in the past I've tried to get into your chat room and had to reboot but it does not always solve the problem Angel.

Perhaps your chat room has something against us Brits, lol.

LOL, DFG. Usually if the server can't communicate with your computer it can't recognize you, so I think it's just the chat server. The irc client is working fine, just double checked it. The only thing I know about ident probs is what I've listed above and also from talking with other people, eventually the irc server recognizes you.
