I’d like to connect IRC via Tor.

Server address: freenodeok2gncmy.onion 6697
Proxy: SOCKS5 localhost 9150
SASL external certificate is place

Hexchat works fine with these settings, but AdiIRC 2.9b does not:
- it tries to resolve .onion address without success,
- however Tor debug log does not even mention the connection attempt from AdiIRC.

What would you recommend?

AdiIRC does not perform dns lookup through the proxy, I will look into what can be done for that and how tor addresses works at some point.

For now, if you are able to resolve the dns to an ip address in hexchat or similar, maybe try connect directly to that ip address.

I had a look at it and removed the DNS check when connecting to a server through a proxy, I verified it worked using the freenode onion address and SASL external with a SSL client certificate.

The fix will be in the next beta very soon.
