Q: Why does DCC not work in my IRC client ?|
From what I know, it seems that DCC requires direct connection between
you and the other user. This connection is dynamic, it's being opened every
time IRC client needs it and it parameters (like Remote Host and Remote Port)
are not known beforehand. Therefore HTTPort is unaware of this connection
and it fails.
You still CAN use DCC if your IRC client allows DCC through SOCKS4 proxy.
SOCKS4 proxy in this case of course is HTTPort. Point your IRC client to use
SOCKS4 proxy at 127.0.0.1:1080 and check [v] "DCC through SOCKS proxy"
checkbox. Note, that this is just a general solution, I don't have any
particular IRC client in mind. Examine your IRC client settings.
