DCC problems using router - 29/12/02 11:03 PM

Help . . . sicne installing My router, I can receive DCCs but not send them. I think it's becasue the router is preventing mIRC from seeing My real IP address. I can't be the only person who's encountered this . . . solutioin, anyone? I've tried all possible combination of "always get" and "normal" and "server" lookup methods. Thanks much.

Thanks, much. As it turns out I stumbled upon both of those pages in my google search last night, and forwarding ports 113-113 and 1024-1030, and setting the DCC port range in mIRC to 1024-1030 worked, at least for me (with all local info blanked out, both "always get" boxes unchecked, and lookup method set to Server).
