Make sure you are trying to connect to irc.freenode.net and that no firewall
is in the way (other than the NAT gateway).

IRC client gives error "Couldn't look up your hostname" while I am trying to
connect to the FreeNode server. I am using my institute net connectivity
which is probably thru' a NAT box.

Hi and welcome,
thanks for your offer to help - we were just discussing today in the
irc-channel that there are some people in our current team who are
willing to guide newbies through the process (get src code, build,
run, modify something, try writing something new, send in patches, etc).
If you have ability, please join #reactos on freenode irc network. If
not, then email is allright (ask questions right here, so other can
read and learn too).
