#19049 closed defect (wontfix)

Can not connect to your IRC room - please change Server

Description

The service provider of the IRC-Servers your room is on is blocking free internet connections (Tor). It is not possible to connect anyhow to your IRC-Room.
"free"node is doing the opposite of what their name is telling. They are blocking "free"dom.

Please switch to oftc where debian, tor-project and other "free" projects like openwrt have their home. After that i would finally get able to talk on irc with you.

*headscratch*
... that doesn't make any sense... you're complaining about openwrt's irc and then in the second paragraph you say that openwrt's irc is the proper model to use.

/sigh

I dont say that openwrt irc is the proper model to use. I asked to change to oftc.

@nbd

Why did you set to not_a_bug? Its a bug (connection not possible) in the management of the openwrt-project. Please switch to an irc server that does not block tor like the oftc network.

Have you ever tried googling for "freenode tor"? There's a page on freenode.net that tells you how you can connect to the network using tor.

Telling everybody else to use a different network might feel a bit more convenient to you, but certainly not to us.

Please don't reopen this ticket.

Freenode works with tor. You should use their "hidden service" and you have to register... Okay, registration itself have to be without tor (but you can use proxy, vpn or web if you care about your privacy so much).

Then it will be better for you if your client supports SASL auth. While it is quite brand new and not all IRC clients support it, SASL could use "passwordless" auth through D-H and is a really good idea, btw. Downside is that "services" (NickServ and somesuch) *must* be alive to do it.

And btw, its very nice of Freenode to set up hidden service on their servers. TBH I do not know other nets who bothered to do the same. They both managed to keep abuse levels adequate while providing some privacy: network haves no idea of your IP and will set up cloak using your registered nickname instead, so nobody knows your IP. Furthermore, SASL makes sure your IP can't leak at all: auth and cloaking are done before everyting else happens. I think we should thank Freenode staff for bothering self to deal with Tor hidden services setup.

I also can not connect to your IRC because you use freenode. nbd, have you tried yourself to connect to freenode when using tor? Its impossible. Freenode staff have closed the .onion + SASL functionality.

I would like to communiate with you. Please fix that.

Apparently you are somehow already communicating, can't you just use emails somehow, private or public and call it a day?

OpenWrt is not moving to a new IRC channel just because you cannot connect to it, just adjust.
