IRC uses 6667 by default. Open that port on your system and or on your router/firewall if any to allow connections.

What type of firewall do you have? Is it a separate box outside of your computer? Is it software, like "zonealarm" or windows firewall?

I'm afraid we can't help you open the ports on your firewall if you don't even know what/where your firewall is. Talk to the person who installed the firewall on your network, and have them open the ports for you, or at least find out from them where / what kind of firewall it is.

If you were the one who set it up or you think it was installed automatically / without your knowledge, then... do you have multiple computers online at your house, that share the same internet connection? Or is your fedora core box hooked directly to the internet?

Only thing I can think of is IPTABLES, but still the IRCd should automaticaly open the ports as its above 1024. Could try
Code:
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 6667 -j ACCEPT

You don't have some kind of modem (dsl, broadband or dialup)?

What device connects you to the internet? modem or router? if it's a router you'll need port forwading/NAT enabled and setup.

do

su -

<enter root password>

ifconfig

find the IP address for your interface (maybe eth0) and post it here
