If you use Bellsouth as your ISP, and keep getting the "Enable Identd" error message in mIRC, be aware that in addition to configuring mIRC to use the same ports that you told the Windows Firewall to use, you need to tell your DSL modem to allow traffic on port 113 (Identd, TCP). See BellSouth's notice on http://www.broadbandreports.com/faq/10754
