UnrealIRCD - Connection timed out

Hi,

I am having this problem after setting up the IRC, I have used a config generator. Here is my problem:

Code: Select all

* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #11 hub.c0w.org (6667) (dns pool)
-
* Unable to connect to server (Connection timed out)
-
* Connect retry #12 hub.c0w.org (6667)
Maybe it has something to do with:

Code: Select all

nameserver 127.0.0.1;
Cloudflare acts like a proxy.

I can only connect using the IP address but not the domain. I have set a full A-record to the IP address. Also I am under cloudflare, could this affect the IRC?

Maybe change 127.0.0.1 to your shell dedicated IP if you run it from shell
If 127.0.0.1 is your IP try to connect by /localhost

And if you havent done the DNS yet, just connect by the IP

The reason connections to hub.c0w.org timeout is because you do NOT have an IRCd listening on either IP that it points to (199.27.134.83 or 199.27.135.83) So to be able to use hub.c0w.org you need to make sure it points to an IP address that is accepting connections for your IRCd.

How do I solve it? Please point me out the part in the config file. It's weird because I manage to connect through IP however not through the domain. I have set a A-record to the IP and the web server's work fine.
