I'm currently playing with the following setup:
- IRCD and ZNC on the same box
- ZNC connecting to the IRCD over 127.0.0.1
This works sofar but once I do it DCC is broken because mirc can't get the localinfo and ZNC tries to establish a DCC connection over localhost.
Next thing I tried is to set the IP of the box as Vhost in ZNC. Now mirc gets the correct localinfo. When I try to send or receive a file now by DCC it *seems* that the connection is established, there is no timeout or whatsoever but no data is actually send or received.
This behaviour pretty much confuses me :p
Is there a way to make a setup where ZNC connects over localhost work with DCC?
mIRC (and many other clients) get there ip address from server replies (I don't know which one exactly).
If you connect through a bouncer like ZNC the client might think it has ZNC's ip and thus uses this ip for DCC.
Try setting your ip address in the mIRC options.
Besides this: Are you doing a DCC with ZNC (I guess not)? Or does ZNC just bounce the DCC? Is ZNC even involved (BounceDCC = false)?
No idea why no data is transfered... (You connected to ZNC, but ZNC didn't manage to connect to the other peer? You would get a message from *status)
I tried to simplify the setup but I can't get it working that ZNC stops bouncing DCC sends.
- ZNC runs on IP_A
- Connects to a different leaf on IP_B
- My mIRC runs on IP_C
Regardless which combination of "BounceDCCs" and "DCCLookupMethod" lookup method I try, the DCC sends are always bounced. Per default mIRC fetches IP_A as localinfo for DCC. Even when I manually enter my own internet connection IP (IP_C) DCC gets bounced over ZNC. Currentyl I run a SVN revision somewhere around r1000.
Any help would be appreciated.
Well, if you have BounceDCCs = false, ZNC shouldn't bounce anything.
And if you enter your own IP (IP_C) manually in mIRC, I don't really see how this can happen...
Oh and if you have BounceDCCs = false, DCCLookupMethod isn't used at all.
So I'd say: BounceDCCs = false and you are set. No idea why this doesn't work :(
