It looks like you are trying to connect to Prison by IP address and a host that resolves to (presumably) all efnet servers. IP addresses can change, so it's a better idea to use the host name. If you look here:

http://www.efnet.org/?module=servers

You will see a list of all efnet servers. Try the ones on that list. When you find one that you can connect to, add it to your server list.
irc.he.net Notice -- Osc (osc@irc.packetmonkeys.com) is now an operator

First, as this has nothing to do with the IRCD, this is being moved to Help.

Second, you weren't banned, your connection was timing out. irc.efnet.net is a round robin that points to a limited amount of US servers. As Osc said, try one of the servers on the page.

EDIT: Third, it looks like you're trying to use a webchat. Try chat.efnet.info.

what about this looks like a webchat?
irc:// is a valid addressing scheme, often registered by mirc or the like, so clicking on <a href=irc://irc.efnet.us/#joemamasougly>#joemamasougly</a> would launch mirc, connect to irc.efnet.us, and join #joemamasougly

Ah, some of us don't use IRC from Windows. ;)

some of us don't use mirc but actually get around the internet to see things like this ;)
