Question Problems with IRCD on Mandrake, cant connect to the box.


I seem to be having a problem with connections to a linux box.
I have setup the IRCD (which is Unreal 3.2) on my Mandrake 10 box (setup with the server level of secuirty option, nearly all settings are still stock) to be used for Lan only chat, the IRCD script compiled fine and it loads fine without reporting any errors. I can also connect to it on the same box that it resides on using an IRC client.

Anyway, the problem is that I cannot connect to the IRC server from any other computer within the lan (doesnt work from the net either but i dont want it to).

Does anyone know why I cannot connect to the box via IRC from other computers?


Here is a bit more information:
In the configuration of the IRCD it has options of what ips and ports I want to listen to so I left them as the default which is:
*: 6667

When I load the IRCD and do a netstat is comes up with:
Local Address: 0.0.0.0:6667
Foreign Address: 0.0.0.0:*
State: LISTEN



I have also tried assigning it the IP in the Unreal configuration so it says: 192.168.0.14:6667 (which is definatly the boxes IP addy). Restarted the box, reloaded the IRCD and still unable to connect from another box, but still can connect locally.
When I do a netstat with these settings it comes up with:
Local Address: 192.168.0.14:6667
Foreign Address: 0.0.0.0:*
State: LISTEN


In all cases, I use the information 192.168.0.14:6667 to TRY and connect to the box from the other LAN computers.

Im very sure it isnt the network connection either because I can connect to the apache server it was running and see its webpages (which has since been uninstalled to make sure it wasnt conflicting) and the box can also access webpages on the internet.

Thats pretty much all the information I can think of to give you guys, any help would be greatly appreciated
