I'm trying to run the Bahamut IRCD on my Amazon Linux AMI EC2 instance. I've opened the appropriate ports in my security group, but any attempt to telnet those ports (6667-6669) gets a "connection refused" message. Obviously, my IRC client also won't connect to the server.

In my ircd.conf file, I've got these three port blocks:

port {
    port    6667;         # Port to listen on
    bind    (my.ip.ad.dr);    # IP address to listen on
    flags   S;            # allow SSL connections on this port
};
port {
    port    6668;         # Port to listen on
    bind    (my.ip.ad.dr);    # IP address to listen on
};
port {
    port    6669;         # Port to listen on
    bind    (my.ip.ad.dr);    # IP address to listen on
};

Any ideas?

Feeling dumb. Just figured this out. Needed to remove the bind lines if I want to be able to connect (I was using my server's IP, not my personal one) from any client. Thanks!
