Unrestricted IRC for Surf-1 customers
As can be seen from the news of the last few days, Internet users who go to IRC via 't-ipconnect.de' can only use limited functions there. For example, you can't kick or change your nickname, and you can't do a lot of other 'nice' things.
This includes Surf-1, which is why they acted immediately! You can therefore resolve the 'restricted connection' with the following socks proxy settings:
The PROXY is called: socksproxy. surf1.de and the port is 1080. It works according to the SOCKS protocol, version 5. Please enter your s number (lower case s and without @ surf1.de) as the user ID and your existing password as the password.
Here is a brief instruction for the most frequently used program: mIRC
In the File menu, select Options In the 'Connect' subtree click on 'Firewall', activate 'Use SOCKS Firewall' Activate the protocol Set to Socks5 Please enter host name: socksproxy.surf1.de. In the User ID field, please enter your s number, with a lowercase s and without @ surf1.de. Simply enter the password you know in the password field. The Port field should read 1080 'Initiate DCCs through Firewall' can be clicked if necessary
