Error connecting to server

heya

since a few days i suddenly can't connect no more to any servers. i even tried without my reg'd nick/pw and i cleaned the caches, but nothing changed. i'm using 2.0.4, but this version worked for me before the problem suddenly came up.

any hints what to check too, please?


greetz,

The player "Ohh I DoD it a...
