Thank you for replying. It shouldn't be related to OFTC.

I get "No Ident response" from any IRC service I tried when I use Tor,
but without Tor I do.

I later checked if the reduced exit policy could be responsible for
that. Ident uses port 113 and it's not included in the reduced exit
policy, but that might be not the problem.

I don't know since when the reduced exit policy is in place, but I
edited the config (torrc) to use only "wau" as exit. It allows almost
any port, according to Atlas.
