    Help: Xchat fail to connect to any irc server

    As the titles says, this what I got when I try to connect to a server, every time:

     Perl interface loaded
     Python interface loaded
    * Querying irc.freenode.net
    * Connecting to chat.freenode.net ( Output port 6667...
    I saw very few people having this problem, please help.

    ps: port 6667 is open in the firewall

    It's fixed. In case others may encounter this, this was what I did:

    /server irc.freenode.net 7000
    note port 7000 should be specified otherwise xchat will use the default 6667 which, I don't know why, doesn't work
