Anyone know how i can open back my ident port? Im behind a router/hardware firewall from Microsoft. I cant seem to connect to some IRC networks like DALNet. (its open, but stealthed accoring to shields up)
This router is awesome, so easy to setup and comes with a firewall, but it has given me some minor problems. Another problem is i cant seen to upload files to my friends anymore using mIRC's DCC. i tried to google but cant find any good sources.
For DCC you'll need to specify a range of ports to use and then open/forward those ports on your firewall, too.
With DCC the sending computer notifies the receiving computer and says "hey, I've got a send for you, connect to me on port <x>" so you need to be sure to have that port open. Most IRC clients, including mirc, provide a way for you to specify what ports to use.
In MIRC it's under tools -> options -> dcc -> options.
