Internet Relay Chat and DCC


Hi, I have always had a hard time sending and receiving DCC files/chat on IRCwhile using a NAT router. DCC uses a range of ports which makes it harder to open on your router. Has anyone been successful with DCC on IRC and has a NAT router? If so, let me know how you do it.

If your router is sane at all you can use "port triggering" to get this working, simply make a trigger that when connecting on 6666-7000 you open 1024-1029 to your local client. Then restrict DCC to that range.

Alternatively if by router you mean a linux box, you just need the ip_conntrack_irc and ip_nat_irc modules loaded with specified ports(eg: modprobe ip_conntrack_irc ports=6667,1024,1025,1026)

Ive actually never heard of port triggering, but I emailed the company who made my router to see if mine can do that.

Nope, mine don't support that. Know of another way?
