Xchat -- xdcc problem

When trying to use the xdcc command I'm getting the following error.

DCC RECV connect attempt to [username] failed (err=No route to host).

I'm thinking it's either a firewalll or router problem but I'm not sure how to fix it

You need to enable a port (your choosing) inside of XChat and your firewall to allow for DCC's.
I use 1025 and it works fine.
