No matter how many friends I try to get files from I always get a connection failed. Is there a special setting I need to set in order to recieve files? I have turned of the block certain file types so I should be able to receive all files. Any Ideas?

Most likely a firewall software on your computer or your ISP is blocking the connections. Getting files over DCC requires that your computer make a connection to the sending computer (by default). So something is blocking you from making that connection to them.

There are a number of good topics to look at for help on this.

Firewall & AntiVirus info
dcc sending probs/router links

Also try the forum search feature as this is a common question.
