You will need an external IRC client to connect.

Server: 128.95.1.228
Channel: #global
Port: 6667

Thanks Tlaloc

I was starting to get chat withdrawal. Hopefully, normal chat will be resumed as soon as possible

Question

So, doing it this way you can redirect foldit's built-in client?

redirect

yup, it'll redirct. adding that host line will make foldit think that server is the regular irc.fold.it server. just remember the change so you can reverse it once things go back to normal

for those that aren't comfortable setting up an irc client or changing system files. there is a web based client you can use at :

irc nick...

In case I ever figure out what IRC is, I wondered why my profile page shows an "IRC nick" as something other than my username (a username I tried to register with but wasn't allowed)? And does this forum have a search function or do you always have to put up with endless repeated newbie questions??

They made the temporary server the main one

That means there is nothing to reset to get everything working again now that the server is repaired.

If you made changes to the hosts file, you should delete the irc.fold.it line, or comment it out. Comments in a hosts file start with a #.

So in your hosts file, this would remove the entry:

#128.95.1.228 irc.fold.it
