Telnet to the IP address and port (usually 6667) from where your IRC
client is, and see what the result is. If you get something like the
below four lines, the connection on the network level is OK and your IRC
:hybrid7.debian.local NOTICE AUTH :*** Looking up your hostname...
:hybrid7.debian.local NOTICE AUTH :*** Checking Ident
:hybrid7.debian.local NOTICE AUTH :*** Couldn't look up your hostname
:hybrid7.debian.local NOTICE AUTH :*** Got Ident response
If you get something like this, your server does not listen to the
expected IP address or TCP port:
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
In this case, you should check whether the IRC server process is even

commented. Also please take a look in /usr/share/doc/ircd-hybrid/ for
