For those as confused as me, according to the web:

  ``[...] bnc is short for a 'bouncer.' A bnc acts as a proxy for irc,
  allowing you to hide your real IP address and use a vhost
  (vanity host - something like '')''

Hmm, what a good use of precious IP address space (!)...

This is the server-side (proxy) port that it is listening on for the
incoming connection from your IRC client.

There will be another to set the IP that it originates outgoing connection
to the IRC server from (does it call this the `vhost'?), at the moment it's
just using the default one. Read the config file/manual for how to set

Now I have actually heard of Eggdrop ;-). For other people:

  ``Eggdrop is the world's most popular Open Source IRC bot, designed for
  flexibility and ease of use, and is freely distributable''

I don't use it myself, but most references to using `set my-ip' are shown in
conjuction with `set my-hostname'--do you need to set this.

Can you turn on debugging output? Can you grep the source files to find the
actual code that is generating that particular error-message/ exit-path?
