Uk Geo Chat

Recommended Posts

Can't get into geochat on any of the links - tried this one last http://hokesters.co.uk/geochat/. I get this message - Unable to connect : java.net.SocketException : Software caused connection abort: connect


Now.....it used to work fine! But I've just had my laptop 'got at' by our IS department. Now on a new domain and had McAfee firewall updated. Can't edit the settings of the firewall (locked down) but have disabled the service so it doesn't start. Java uptodate and pop up blockers all off. I don't want to install Mirc as its my laptop and its MrsB who uses the chat so its convenient to go in via IE.


Any techsperts out there who can help?
