CaT,

From my location I do not have a DNS issue. I'm on IRC now.

Got this as an announcement from one of the IRC Operators.

--Global-- [Phil] As many of you may have already noticed, we are experiencing problems with the DNS system. If you have contact with anyone who is trying to connect, please give them this IP address to use temporarily: 195.210.38.79. We are sorry for the inconvenience this problem is causing.

Animal,

Is there anyway to have the Java Client connect using that IP?

Wyldryde is aware of the problem. By the time the recoding necessary to change the Java Client on Bleeping Computer was done, it would have to be undone quite likely. If the problem persists we may need to do that, however.

Thank you for your suggestion, and we will keep that in mind.

needTOS, here is something just to try seeing as I just got it done. Connect with the Java client, it will say it can't connect, type /server 195.210.38.79 - It worked for me so just give it a try.

Warm regards,
Kyle
