ircd.conf: "Connection failed. Error: Connection refused"
 
Hello,

I'm trying to get an IRC server on my server. I'm using dancer-ircd. I followed a how to and have just copied the example.conf and ircd.conf.

Thus, the only options specified are the mandartory ones:
Code:

M:localhost.:127.0.0.1:localhost:
A:Example location:My address:Inept server admin <dancer@localhost>
Y:1:90:0:20:100000
Y:2:90:300:10:4000000
.include "olines.conf"
I:10.0.0.0/8::x::1
O:*:$1$nmNi3oKw$/TTB9SfKK3.KPYfKBYLy20:admin:abcdDfFgGhHkKlLmMnNpPrRsSUvVwWxXyYzZ0123459*:1:acdDfFgGhHkKlRsSUvVWXyYzZ0123459
O:*:$1$nmNi3oKw$/TTB9SfKK3.KPYfKBYLy20:luser::1:
H:*::*
P::::6667

Whenever I try and log onto the server (using irssi) I get this error:
Code:

00:24 -!- Irssi: Looking up localhost
00:24 -!- Irssi: Connecting to localhost [127.0.0.1] port 6667
00:24 -!- Irssi: Unable to connect server localhost port 6667 [Connection refused]

What could be causing this? It isn't my firewall, as I have turned that off (and it allows port 6667 anyway).

Any suggestions would be great. Or if someone could post me their ircd.conf for me to look at.

Thanks
Hamish

Hey dude.
I'm still working on it. What does you ircd.conf file look like, so I can see what a working one looks like.

Thanks for your help
