Hey all,

My eggdrop was working fine for a few weeks and now I get frequent ping timeouts. I get the following on DCC chat:

-ERROR from server- Closing Link: botname[hostname](Ping timeout)

On my mirc client it seems that I get a pong from the server around the time the eggdrop times out.

For example:
My mirc status window:
[08:33] * PONG from server
Channel notice:
[08:33] * botname (name@hostname) Quit (Ping timeout)
[08:33] * botname (name@hostname) has joined #channel

My mirc status window:
[09:01] * PONG from server
Channel notice:
[09:03] * botname (name@hostname) Quit (Ping timeout)
[09:03] * botname (name@hostname) has joined #channel

So I am guessing the server has a random ping/pong and the eggdrop isn't seeing it? Or it could be something totally different.

I run BIP on the same machine as the eggdrop and don't get any pign timeouts.

This sounds like network issues to me. Most likely, all traffic on your uplink was interrupted for a longer while (enough for your eggdrop to timeout). When the traffic finally gets through again, you get a burst of events, including your eggdrop's disconnect and that server ping reply (pong).

As for the actual PONG, either your irc client sent a PING to the server, or your router (or other device for internet sharing) has some serious issues mixing up established connections.
