Manuel,

I use pidgin. I don't really know much about how all this works. Nick
Boldt held my hand to set up the connections that allow me to hang out
on #eclipse-modeling

I've also included the ECF newsgroup on the "to" list of my reply so
they can offer help, though there's not much they can do to get around
your firewall issues.

Pidgin can be configured to use an HTTP proxy to get around many
firewall issues. Perhaps ECF has similar capability...?

Unfortunately, ECF does not support http tunneling for IRC at this point.

I've included on this email Christoph Schwering, who is the author of
IRCLib...which is the IRC communications library that ECF uses.

Christoph is actively working on IRCLib, and so hopefully will be able
to help us address this need.

I've also created this enhancement request to track this issue:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=221888

Thanks.

Scott

Hi all,

First, thanks for your support.

In fact i think i'll never be able to connect to an IRC node outside the
company even if i can configure my client to go through the firewall ...

I think what i need is a way to set up an internal IRC "server" and
channels .. I don't know how IRC works ... is there any way to do this ?

Regards

Manu
