(sorry if in the wrong place) Ok, so I tried connecting to an IRC server I'm always on, it failed which was odd. I decided to look deeper, and it appears my host is blacklisted on dronebl as having an "Insecure SOCKS server." The incident was in November, and I had no trouble connecting back then. I would "address this issue" but I don't know how to address it. Would I bring this up with my ISP? Also, I've tried 2 other servers, same thing. I am not running a server of ANY kind, in fact, I have no idea what "Insecure socks server" means. Looking up it seems like it has to do with proxies, but I don't use one. Looks like i'm back in computer nonsenseland. :flowers: :trumpet: :thumbsup:
