I have googled and I have fiddled, but I am having some IRC DCC (leeching) issues and I could use a little help, if anyone is so inclined.
- OS X 10.3.3
- ircle 3.1.
- prefs set to auto-accept DCC, auto-save, and auto-resume
- firewall off for this endeavour (I figured I could deal with that issue next time)
- behind a router
- Shaw cable
- public IP number setting on (I tried with it off too)
- no identd -- ircle used to use the identd built-in to OS X but it's not there in 10.3 for some reason
- irc works fine for chat
- using irc.rizon.net
The channel I'm in is using bots, so I sent the little message to the bot and it said it was sending me the file. The connection opens, then it closes with a "Connection Lost (Connection reset by peer)" message and all I'm left with is a 0k file. I've tried this a few times, in case it was a fluke.
In other news, I haven't been very posty lately. Sorry about that -- I think I'm getting lost inside my own brain right now. Here's what I'm up to:
Watching: tennis boys
Writing: Quidditch boys
Reading: A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett
Drinking: oatmeal stout
Listening: Yaida Hitomi
Thinking: a lot
