Try a non-SSL port such as 6667 or 8068...

Port 7000 should work. That's the port I use. Make sure you have everything setup correctly. Make sure your router allows that kind of traffic to flow through it. Other than that, it should work. If it doesn't, try connecting non-SSL. If you get that to work, then switch back to SSL.

mShred, I'm thinking its his client that doesn't like SSL in the current settings.

Port 6667 should work fine.

It most likely already is. Did you get it to work with 6667?

What IRC client are you using? Placing the port in parenthesis may be messing it up...
instead of using:
irc.hackthissite.org (+7000)

try something like this:
irc.hackthissite.org:7000
or
irc.hackthissite.org+7000

That's not what he typed. He most likely put in irc.hackthissite.org:7000 or irc.hackthissite.org/7000 (Xchat). (+7000) is just what it shows when trying to connect.

Yeah, I just tried it from my end. SSL seems to not be working for me as well.
Port 6667 seems to work fine.

works for me

Edit: They've been working on some IRC configuration stuff as well as moving around mustang (one of the irc servers). If it doesn't work, try again or hard code hub or spider (.irc.hackthissite.org). Make sure your client supports SSL or use 6667.
