    This is the message I am getting:

    * Looking up irc.campaignhqbbs.us
    * Connecting to campaignhqbbs.us (108.91.36.159:6667)
    * Connection failed (Connection refused)
    Cycling to next server in CampaignHQBBS...

    Also a message in the control window:

    12/29 12:30:28p QNET Call-out: PANDAICE

    12/29 12:30:34p QNET Call-out to: PANDAICE returned 1

    I thought this one was because I was using the wrong name. Well, if I was it is happening on all names. I am nearly getting to installing FTN for mail and skipping QWK.

    Thank you for your help...

    Looks like a firewall issue or port mapping if the ircd is, in fact,
    listening on port 6667. OP never posted anything to show that it was.

    I had a firewall, semi-semi-configured. I had it going to the wrong machine. --- Synchronet 3.20a-Linux NewsLink 1.113
