Conection fine with local not so fine with non local

Post by radiantsilver » Sun Feb 21, 2016 12:57 am

If I connect to my IRC server on local host I get all good, example (hexchat localhost):

Looking up localhost
* Connecting to USER-PC (::1:6667)
* Connected. Now logging in.
* *** Looking up your hostname...
* *** Couldn't resolve your hostname; using your IP address instead
* Capabilities supported: userhost-in-names multi-prefix away-notify account-notify tls
* Capabilities requested: userhost-in-names multi-prefix away-notify account-notify
* Capabilities acknowledged: userhost-in-names multi-prefix away-notify account-notify
* Welcome to the RadiantSilverNet IRC Network gaz`!USER@localhost
* Your host is irc.radiantsilver.com, running version UnrealIRCd-4.0.1
* This server was created Fri Jan 15 18:12:43 2016


But if I connect to this on its own external IP I get (from hexchat):

Looking up 61.231.190.115
* Connecting to 61.231.190.115:6667 (61.231.190.115:6667)
* Connected. Now logging in.
* *** Looking up your hostname...
* *** Found your hostname (cached)
* Capabilities supported: userhost-in-names multi-prefix away-notify account-notify tls
* Capabilities requested: userhost-in-names multi-prefix away-notify account-notify
* Disconnected (Connection reset by peer)

Why cant I connect on the real ip? I have port forwarding going for 6667 and 6697, http://www.canyouseeme.org/ verfies both are open. I also wrote my own IRC client, it seems to stop receiving anything from the server after the initial PONG even on a client running on my mobile. Does anyone have any idea? This runs on my windows pc, firewall off.

Did you manage to solve your problem?
And could outside users connect OK to your IRC server? Like, was it only you having the problem connecting locally but with outside IP? That latter is not uncommon with routers, and usually not a problem since you can just use the internal IP.
