Check your anti-virus and any 3rd party firewall you might have installed
and ensure that neither have IRC blocked. This is especially true of the
larger anti-virus products, which often have a separate "block IRC" option
somewhere away from the normal port blocking.

It could also be your internet provider - especially if you're using school,
collage, university or work-provided internet - that is blocking IRC. In
this case, you're pretty much stuck for most networks. If you can find
secure ports (check the network's website) you can connect using "/sslserver
host port" and hope that port isn't blocked as well.
