I want to connect to an IRC server but the server is rejecting Tor users. How can I use Pidgin, or any other IRC program to connect outside Tor?

I tried Pidgin >> Modify >> Proxy >> Proxy type: No proxy but Pidgin gives an error:

Unable to connect: Connection refused

When I use >> Global proxy settings and try to connect then Pidgin gives the error:

ERROR :Tor exit node detected (port 80)
