Access to IRC via Pidgin

Hi guys,

I just finished the basic missions and before going in deeper I wanted to look around IRC first. I use Pidgin (which works fine on freenode) but doesn't seem to work with HTS.
I tried connecting with my HTS nick+pw, set the port to 7000, nothing. I just get the error that it timed out.

What did I do wrong?

Thanks.

I've never used Pidgin. What details are you entering?

I enter my HTS username (MrKooky), my password, irc.hackthisite.org as server and 7000 as port. The rest is default behaviour.

We had an outage the other day. Have you since tried connecting?
Also, the IRC credentials are not the same as your HTS user/pass. It's currently its own entity, so you won't have a registered account that you need to enter a password for on connect.

You should just need to specify this stuff:
irc.hackthissite.org
port 7000
your username
