The data center blocks 6667 at router level to squash bot nets (for DDoS attacks and other malice) on hacked servers. I'm not sure I understand how it helps a whole lot, but that's what they do, and the offer was far better than the competition except for that. Abime's side (irc.abime.net) will be back on port 6667 (as well as others) and linked to that server again very soon.

I'm sure at least a few users with X-Chat are online. The port would've been my guess, but since you're aware of that, I don't know what's the problem. What exactly happens?
