After purchasing MIRC, I have not been able to use the DCC features.
Here is what happens when I try to SEND: (jpeg)
Nortons Security Alert: Nortons Internet Worm Protection and Blocked intrusion attempt.
Security Rule: Default Block Netspy Trogan Horse
Inbound
1024 Port
local adapters
TCP
then I disconnect from IRC.
When I try to receive, nothing happens, I see it but when I accept nothing. I have disabled firewall, worm protections, and I still can't SEND/RECEIVE.
XPSP2
DCC in enabled
I do not have a virus or worm.

Any suggestions? Thanks mad

Remove the security rule in Norton that blocks you from using DCC. That's not a even a problem with mIRC, it's a Norton problem.

As for receiving DCC, remember that there might be a problem on the side of the sender.
