    most of you probably know the IRC chat channels.

    Well since a couple of weeks every time i try to connect with IRC, i'm getting this message :

    Connecting...
    Unable to connect : java.net.SocketException : Software caused connection abort: connect

    anyone knows a way to fix this?

    You probably have a program blocking your connection with chat. Your firewall or anti-virus program security software might be preventing the applet from talking to the IRC server.
