Error "No more more connections allowed from your host" #95

I deployed a subway instance internally in our a company for our team to use. We have about ~5-10 accounts. Every once in a while after logging in, the following error is produced:

Unhandled message: { command: 'ERROR',
  rawCommand: 'ERROR',
  commandType: 'normal',
  args: [ 'Closing link (unknown@ [No more connections allowed from your host via this connect class (local)]' ] }

This produces a continuous stream of the following message:

 '*** Looking up your hostname...'

The initial error comes from the ircd you're connecting to, you're hitting a class limit of how many connections are allowed.

Subway should probably handle this case better, but you need to inform the irc network that they'll need to allow more simultaneous connections from your ip.


Cool, thanks for the info!

Should surface this error in the UI. I'll look into it.

I think most of this information should be propagated to the status window, especially if it falls into the category of "um, I don't know where this goes"


Kind of related to #302 . Some feedback should be given to the user.

@akavlie did you ever look into this?


This should be handled more gracefully now as in the refactor client we won't get caught in a reconnect loop
