Well if i want to receive files through xDCC it only works like 1 out of 20 times ... the file always gets send but it can't establish a connection most of the times. I set my router to forward the ports 1025 to 1030 which I set mIRC to use for DCC and i turned the windows firewall off. Anyone knows what i could do to get it work more often?

DCC actually is reversed .. when you send a file to someone,
your mIRC is actually telling their mIRC to connect to your
mIRC to get the file, when someone sends a file to you,
their mIRC is actually telling your mIRC to connect to their
mIRC to get the file. So if you're getting a file, it's actually
an outbound connection for you. So problems connecting are
most likely on the senders end instead of yours unless your
firewall is blocking outgoing connections.
