#13 non-standard server port


How can I connect to a server using a non-standard port?

I tried doing:

irc.w3.org:6665 in the server list.

This works! if I go through a http proxy, and doesn't if I don't

    After you define a network, you can define a list of servers
    for that network. In the server list, you can set the port
    you want to use.

    For the network I use, I set two servers: irc.xxxxx.net 7000
    and irc.xxxxx.net 6667 (server name removed for privacy) and
    if X-chat can't connect to port 7000 it will fall back to 6667.

    Try defining the server for w3.org to use port 6665.
