Default Chat Problems

Chat problems

Many people are complaining about not being able to connect to #banglacricket last night. This is the first time we had so many people in the chat room and people with slower connection, slower PC couldn't chat.
For those of you guys who are having new chat or connection problems, may want to try an independent IRC client instead of web chat. There are many IRC chat clients available for free just do a search on download.com for 'IRC chat client'.
Following are 3 clients for different Operating System:

1. Ircle(www.ircle.com) for Macintosh
2. Iirc (comes with OS) for Linux
3. mIRC (www.mirc.com) for Windows

Please note that #banglacricket is on IRC (Internet Realy Chat) network called Starlink. Please use any of the available servers from Starlink.Org server list or select radom server. If you still having problems please post at this board. But always disable or configure your firewall (if any) settings for the IRC client.

Detailed instruction for those who are having chat problem:

1. Chat with independent IRC Client:
a) Download and install mIRC
b) Star mIRC, after it starts up, close any small windows (connection, or tips windows) within mIRC.
c) At the bottom you will see typing area, type:
/server irc.starlink.org

d) Once you see its connected, type
/join #banglacricket
that should bring you to our room.

2. Chat with our Web Java Client
a)You must have the most recent Java Virtual Machine(VM) installed. You can install Java VM here.
b) If you are running Internet Explorer 5 and having problems, try upraging to more stable version 6, click here. Or try other more stable browsers such as Mozilla. You can download Mozilla here.
c) When our chat applet starts up and asks you to grant permission, you have to grant it. If you say no or cancel chat won't work.

If you face more problems post here.
