if it's an mIRC bot located on your computer (or another computer on your internet connection) try /localinfo -h on your computer before dcc chat with the bot .. don't forget to change it back (/localinfo -u) to chat with anyone else.
if it's an eggdrop bot, try /ctcp botnick chat
I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
Also, if they're both running on the same machine, you should set different port ranges for your personal client and your bot. 20 ports each would be plenty, 1031-1050 for you and 1051-1070 for your bot should work fine.
Some routers seem to prevent using DCC to and from yourself. Whether or not this is a setting in those routers or permanent, I don't know as I've never owned one that prevented it. That may be a good place to start, though.
hmmm, i'm really completely confused about all this, ive never had a problem with any of this stuff before, and when i have, i can usually solve it with information posted on here. Ive tried forwarding the ports 1024 to 1324 on my router and setting those ports on my mirc(s) lol and both havn't worked the only thing i can actually think of is the router preventing a connection with myself too Raimus2. What can i do to sort this problem out, phone my ISP?
You could try, but they may be unable to help you. You can also look around and see if you can get any more help on the issue. Other than that, you could always try a different router. It may be a good idea to ask here for good routers that don't give you problems with sending to yourself (and, for that matter, ones that also don't give you problems with RESUME because of the NAT settings in the router).
You might want to post your router here as someone here may have the same router and could verify if the router is the problem.
