So this is quite strange and I'm not sure how solvable this will be. But yesterday erc was working just fine, and then today it is stuck on trying to connect to the server (irc.freenode.net) with the error of:
Connection failed! Re-establishing connection... *** ERC terminated: failed with code 22
I can't find any way to figure out what "code 22" means. I'm on a Mac 10.11.6 (El Capitan), installed emacs through brew, and ran emacs like so:
emacs --no-init-file. I've also uninstalled/reinstalled by deleting both the ~/Library/Caches/Homebrew/emac* and /usr/local/Cellar/emacs.
Lastly during a fresh reinstall of running
emacs --no-init-file I also tried to run both
M-x irc (in emacs), and
M-x erc-tls all fail to connect. I have also tried different ports 6667-7000 any help is appreciated, and thank you.
