ok i have followed all the info in this thread, set the dcc ports in mirc, forwarded the ports in my router, but still cannot dcc send/chat/resume. when i try the recieving nick gets a DCC Send Rejected (Invalid Parameters) error, if i connect to the irc server on port 7000 all dcc's work fine however not all irc servers accept connections on port 7000. it has been suggested that my router (Binatone 2100 4 Port Adsl) is inspecting/altering the packets being sent in the dcc request. if anyone i can help me fix this i would be very grateful. thanx
