I am contacting you as I am trying to connect my eggdrop to irc.dal.net but it is constantly getting rejected due to too many connections from shell.xshellz.com.
Could you please check this with dal.net staff? Below is my eggdrop's connection log.
[16:16:16] Trying server [irc.dal.net]:6667
[16:16:16] DNS resolved irc.dal.net to 18.104.22.168

[16:16:16] -ERROR from server- Closing Link: 0.0.0.0 (Too many connections from your host)
[16:16:16] Disconnecting from server.
Please let me know if you need any further data. Thanks in advance.
You need to check this with dalnet irc ops to increase number of connections for free server.
Hi StephenS, I checked on dal.net #help room and I got the below answers:
(2021-03-23 11:51:54) darkstar: FIUBOT, apparently they reached their limit as to how many connections they can connect to the network at one time. That happens with free services, usually because they get abused with people using them to load drones, spammers or other miscreants. You will have to wait for one of them to disconnect, but don't worry, you are getting your money's worth

(2021-03-23 11:52:37) FIUBOT: Isn't there any way to increase the number of allowed connections?
(2021-03-23 11:53:14) darkstar: no, not for a user, they would need to try, and the answer might be no to them also
