I can't logon to my IRC server
(other tech support topics)
If the IRC server kills your connection automatically, it is usually a result of the policy of the IRC network not to allow anonymous users. Note that it is not a limitation of the demo version. The demo version has no limitations for IRC connections, you can connect to any server you like and use it fully.
Some IRC networks deny access to the users who do not have a proper IDENT server running on their computers. IDENT service provides the chat networks with some means to identify their users, and it doesn't work with AntiFirewall. Download our free trial version of AntiFirewall to see if it works with your favorite IRC server. The trial version allows you to test it with any IRC servers and networks. As an example, all EFNet servers seem to require IDENT; on the other hand, Underground.net doesn't require it and works fine with AntiFirewall.
Other testing methods differ significantly from network to network. Different servers belonging to the same network may also have slightly different anonymity tests and blacklists. A common testing method is trying to determine if you are connecting through an anonymous public proxy server. Since that is exactly how AntiFirewall works, you will probably need to try different IRC servers and experiment with different proxies within AntiFirewall until you find a combination which will fool the IRC server's anonymous access test. A comprehensive list of IRC networks can be found here: http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/networks/servers/
You should also try changing the proxy server used by AntiFirewall. What you need in order not to be detected is a right combination of the IRC server and the proxy server.
