    afaik, most IRC services run on port 6667 of a server. So if you were administering a firewall for a college or university, blocking most IRC usage would be as simple as blocking all outbound connections to port 6667 on a remote computer. There are some other common ports which IRC services run on which your college may also block (6665-6670, 7000).

    Hope this helps

    He...They must using a firewall againts those ports. Try using a proxy server..and connecting to the irc server. Using 1080, Or test the irc server via java applet..if it works youll need using java then.

    -Hope this helps dude

    if the admin is on the ball, then everything is blocked by default. s/he then goes back and allows only the services that are wanted/needed on the network. if this is true here, 1080 will not work either

    ref. to tux. how can i get to proxy server. or may be u can explain wat is proxy server is. but wat i beleive is def of sth come across your mind after u play around with it.
    i believe the this is wat i should do <blockquote>mIRC DCC / IRC DCC
    [mIRC Proxy/Firewall Help page <http://www.mirc.co.uk/help/proxies.html>]
    (Watch Out! Opens a wide port range!)
    IN TCP 1024 - 5000
    mIRC Chat
    (The IRC port is usually 6667)
    IN TCP 6660 - 6669
    mIRC IDENT
    IN UDP 113
    </blockquote>
    change the dcc already but i can get tcp and the other thing.
    thank 4 ur help
