"If mIRC sends a PING with a parameter, it expects a PONG response with that parameter. This

is not replying correctly, then mIRC will not work."

your text was missing some words :P

That's what bip replies as far as I can see:

<telnet>
PING toto
:servername PONG toto
</telnet>

I wonder what mirc expects here. maybe the :servername makes it unhappy. Any idea on how to know?

More info is needed. Currently it doesn't seem bip is behaving badly.

<< PING LAG130951
>> :servername PONG servername :LAG130951

here's the answer the irc client (mIRC and konversation) expects.

it's answer from raw debug mode of konversation on the normal irc server.

but bip answer is

<< PING LAG130714
>> :servername PONG LAG130714

and client dos not recognizes the answer. konversation in this instance reconnect after 3 min.
