sorry if i have missed anything in 10 pages of replys and problems.

I cant send or receive using DCC. I get the problem, connection refused at the receive end and awaiting connection at the send end before it times out.

I have checked the IPs and they both match. I have tried setting up my router for port forwarding, UDP 113, TCP 1024-1025 but still no difference.

I am running XP SP2, Zone Alarm Firewall
DLink 614 (the likely problem)

mIRC settings:
DCC port range for connections 1024 - 1025
Local Info: Local Host and Server checked
DCC Server enabled listen port 59

Any ideas ?
Any help much appreciated.
