Hi Smile

I have the following problem - and yes, i have searched in the net and in this forum before for some useful ideas, but did not succeed :/

I tried to connect to linz.irc.at (ircnet) - this works perfect, msg
to the bot, set a password, dcc-chat worked Smile

But with irc.inn.at.euirc.net (euirc) there was a problem with the dcc
chat (refused dcc chat (no access)

But connecting to the bot worked with telnet with the standard config file port.

I have a router, but i have it configurated for port forwarding the
telnet port and the irc ports (6660-6669) - IRCnet ok, EUirc - no go
*g*

so i can say the router works and is no troublemaker.

I run Windrop at a XP machine, newest Windrop version for long Bot irc
nicknames.

Could it be that euirc makes troubles for me and my bot?

Perhaps one of you knows an answer Smile

Thanks Smile

Does that network use that annoying masking? If so set your user mode -x and that should fix it.

the IRC server has absolutely nothing to do with DCC (some servers filter DCC SEND requests for executables, but that's another, unrelated story)

the IRC server merely passes DCC CHAT request as normal CTCP in PRIVMSG

read the top sticky thread of this forum if you haven't done so already

It's called DCC Allow and it's apparently more popular that you indicate and it applies to all files; I suggest you look at your mIRC options. I use XChat and have to allow all files coming to me unless I have auto accept enabled (which no one with a brain would).

again, irrelevant to the IRC server itself; it's your mIRC/xchat client that controls those file extensions, not the server

the only servers I know of that actually inspect PRIVMSG contents and filter out .exe's from DCC SEND ctcp (and maybe also other file types) on a particular user mode are Unreal (i.e. bloated) type ircds; well, maybe DALnet's bahamut too Razz can't recall exactly

Bahamut, Unreal, Ultimate; just 3 "that actually inspect PRIVMSG contents and filter".

I would normally ignore but decided to point out the apparent flaw in your initial statement. Smile

Apart from executables that are filtered, certain other potentially malicious filetype's are.

none of these is used on a major (50k+ users) network (DALnet once was, before its demise due to flood) - and rightfully so; the server has no business messing with clients' PRIVMSGs, its role is to route, forward and send messages, not to tamper with them

(someone could ask how come I was advocating spam filtering on ircd level then hehe)

Although a tad annoying at times; I don't mind it myself but I only ever accept files from people I know anyway so its absence would not be a drama for me but for others less vigilant, oh well... Smile
