    Unhappy IRC server: can only connect via localhost

    Hello, i have a problem with ircd-hybrid irc server, i can't connect via network or internet, only via localhost. I can't find it in the .conf file and all ports in router are open. Can somebody solve this?

    I got a question man, does ircd-hybrid work even after reboot?
    If so email me the source code of ircd.conf.
    My irc works untill i reboot the server computer.
    tyspage.doesntexist.com channel #help
    thats my irc.
    Like i said "works fine untill reboot server".

    Ok, when you get to /etc/ircd-hybrid/ircd.conf line host= "127.0.0.1"
    port = 6665..6669
    change that to #host = "127.0.0.0.1"
    And then set your port to 6667 or whatever you want.

    Nevermind. I could only connect to the localhost for a while until I changed this:
    /* port: listen on all available IPs, ports 6665 to 6669 */
    host = "192.168.1.1; # change this!
    port = 6665 .. 6669;
    };
    to this

    /* port: listen on all available IPs, ports 6665 to 6669 */
    #host = "192.168.1.1; # change this!
    port = 6667;
    };
    Now the port is open and I can connect from an external IP.
