It works fine. If you have the Chatzilla plug-in for Firefox, just type irc://chat.psionics.net:6667/greytalk into your browser and it takes you there. That's the only IRC program I use anymore, but I assume others work just as well.

No dice for me, though I think it's b/c I'm using a proxy.

X gave me the URL for access using CGI, but that seems to be busted. I've not been able to get in #gt for a couple days :(

All I get is a blank white page with text: "No input file specified."
I didn't know I needed one. I didn't know I had one to start with, let alone specifying one.


I can confirm a similar experience. I actually had time to attend the Greychat this week (the 29th) and could not get in using the link from the CF home page in the left hand column. So, I read a book.

I just tried again and got a white page announcing, "This webpage cannot be found." Boccob needs to turn his eye toward a fix.

Argh. You too GVD? Confused
I'll try and tell Holian about it if I ever see him before next Thursday.
You two don't use mIRC eh?

Well I tried that link on the left and it 404'd me too. Then I backed out the cf.html part and it sent me to a list of channels on otherworlders site.
Ours says: "The GreyTalk/CanonFire chat is located HERE, please update your bookmarks."
Using that link it took me to a chat page that said "Grey Talk Chat
We are testing out a new web chat. Please enter your name below."
I got in greychat but its rather strange. I guess the server is tinkering around with a new java chat service thingee.

In chatzilla, type:

/attach thulcandra.otherworlders.org

once it connects, type:

/nick YourNickname

yournickname being whatever you want, with no spaces, use underscores _

then

/join #greytalk

that's it.

If anyone has further connection problems, please AIM me (chatdemonrich) or MSN (chatdemon@hotmail.com) me and I'll try to help.

The java link in the page margin works. I had to use it when I had problems with mIRC. Somehow I got those problems worked out though, so I switched back to mIRC.

Well, for the second week in a row, none of the options posted here work for me.


My guess, after looking at the chat network status data, is that the problems you are encountering are coming from their end, rather than Canonfire! If the problems persist, I suggest visiting www.otherworlders.org and seeking assistance there.

Sorry for the inconvenience

The CF link now works for me. Thanks to the CF admins for ironing out the difficulties.

For those who may still be encountering difficulties, I note that when I try to log on through the CF link sometimes I need to try two or three times before java "takes" and opens the chat window. And in every case, I come in as a guest and have to adjust my nickname (instructions for which are just below the chat window). Hope this may prove helpful.

Sorry for posting in an old thread but it's on topic for my problem Smile .

I tried for about 2 hours tonight to get into chat and it wouldn't let me. I tried going in through the java thing here on the website...

Then tried mirc but couldn't figure out how to do it. I went to that new mirc users/help link that's there but all I got was a broken link/site not responding.

I tried using that chatzilla thing posted above as I use firefox but that wouldn't work either it just kept giving me a "retry in 30 seconds."

Dunno why but the java thing here at the website kept saying something about "forbidden you do not have access."

I swear I was nice last week so dunno why I been forbidden Shocked .

Edit: went and looked and it said this:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /chat/cf/ on this server.
Apache/2.2 Server at www.otherworlders.org Port 80


Dunno if that helps but that's what I kept getting when I tried the java thinigie.

Otherworlders itself was down apparently, so users of whatever chat method(Java, Chatzilla, mIRC, Mibbit, etc.) were unable to get in for a while this evening. I posted the following elsewhere, but I'll put it here too.

This is a heads up for everyone who wants to visit the chat rooms. Java still works fine as far as I can tell(usually), but mIRC users will need to switch servers(unless you are just starting out with the chat room).

For mIRC users, launch mIRC as normal. You will not be able to connect until you do the following:

Got to "Tools" and then "Options". Under the "Catergory:" section on the left side of the box under the "Connect" heading, highlight the folder named "Servers", and click the "Add" button at the right. In the new box that pops up type in a short description of the server in the Description box, "Gamechat" for instance. In the "IRC Server" box type "irc.otherworlders.org"(don't type the quotes obviously:wink:), and in the "Ports" box type "6667", which is the #greytalk channel. There is no need to enter anything under the "Group" box. Enter a pasword if you wish, and then click "Add".

That should fix your problem and you should be able to restart mIRC and get into the chatrooms. Access the channel list as normal to join a specific chatroom. My thanks to Daigle who helped me a bit with my own switchover. Hope this helps somebody else.

Once you have mIRC installed, you can actually use this direct link:

irc://irc.otherworlders.org/greytalk

If anybody has any further help to pass along then by all means do so! Cool

I went through the posts here and got one of the instructions to work...

It was posted by ratlord

<<<In chatzilla, type:

/attach thulcandra.otherworlders.org

once it connects, type:

/nick YourNickname

yournickname being whatever you want, with no spaces, use underscores _

then

/join #greytalk

that's it. >>>



I couldn't get any of the others to work.


At least I think I got it to work... I am in a chat room called greytalk but for all I know I am on the wrong side of the cyber universe, on a wrong server, sitting in there talking to myself Smile


EDIT: OOps as it turns out I was on the wrong side of the cyber universe in the wrong chat room. While writing my post the post above mine was made and by following the link in it I was able to get into chat. Thank you Smile

This link worked like a charm

irc://irc.otherworlders.org/greytalk

Thanks Smile

Are you using mIRC?

Internet Explorer was giving me troubles. I switched to Mozilla Firefox. Icarus helped me with it, you might PM him.

ICEChat is also a good alternative. It's available for free download here: http://www.icechat.net/site/
