I'm using Foldit on Windows 7/SP1 on a i7-2670QM 2.20GHz w/ 6GB ram.

I'm using a variety of internet connections from home, T1 and others and the in-game chat never works. My PC protection software is McAfee which has a build-in firewall.

I also tried to Fix the IRC chat from the "IRC" tab in "My Page" to no success. There is a message that reads as "Attempt failed -- please try again in a few minutes."

I was thus wondering why the in-game chat wasn't working.

Thanks,
lincher

Bonjour lincher,
As-tu essayé de desactiver le fire-wall ?
C'est peut-etre lui qui bloque le port IRC...

J'alloue toutes les passerelles au travers de Win7 Firewall. J'ai même désactivé le FW sans réussite.

c'est la "protection lors de l'accès" de McAfee qui est trop forte et n'alloue pas les passerelles du Firewall windows.

J'ai donc rajouté une ligne de code "protection lors de l'accès" de McAfee et le tour est joué.

Merci pour l'aide nicobul2
