I've got two questions regarding cygwin usage.
- I'm trying to run Irssi using Cygwin but it won't connect to any server i give it even if I can connect from other, non-cygwin clients like mIRC and freenode's webchat. The connection always times out and its the same way with other programs (like naim) as well. I can't help but feel that I've missed something, but I don't know what. Do I need to do anything special with Cygwin before I can connect?
- I use screen to manage multiple windows, but when I'm using screen with Emacs I can't move to the beginning of a line with C-a because that's captured by screen (c-a 0-9 to move to another window, etc). Is there any way to rebind it?
