I have periodically been blocked from freenode (and then run into problems when trying to use the freenode onion service). This has usually happened when/if I run tor, even briefly, as an exit node. Freenode (and others) checks the exit node list and if it sees your IP there, you are blocked from normal access. To regain normal access, you have to ensure you are not running a tor exit AND you need to contact the freenode operators and request you be unblocked, explaining that you are not running (or are no longer running) a tor exit node. praedor On Wednesday 31 December 2008 07:47:39 Udo van den Heuvel wrote: > Ted Smith wrote: > > Freenode also has no way of knowing if you're connecting from your > > machine, or from your exit node.
