I have tried to join the #FXhome chat and it will not work. It won't, it tells me that there are two channels in use but will not let me joint the main channel. I am not an administrator on this computer as I am at work.

Thats odd, it should work fine on your system. Do you get any specific error message when you try to join the channel? Can you join the other channel ok? It might be worth trying mirc ( www.mirc.com ) to test if it's being blocked somewhere.

I beileve that it may be a proxy thing, Because Iam at a computer at work. I do not get an error, infact it says I connect with the server, but I can not join the channel. I can't download mIRC at work right now, it will not even allow me to right click or access My Computer.

It does sound like it could be being blocked by your work somehow. Theres not really much we can do if they want to prevent you accessing it.

Yeah I thought that may be the case after the first attempt. Well maye you could do something to let it past the block? In any event, thank you for the assistance Malone.

It won't work for me either. On safari I get a message that says "Closing Link: [207.44.160.13] (Ping timeout) You have been disconnected from the server." I tried to reconnect but it didn't work. On Internet Explorer at school, it connects me but whenever I try to type something it says "no destination specified."
