The IRC connection fails to continue after it says “connected” and since I moved on to Comcast for internet access.
About a week or so ago I moved from Verizon DSL to Comcast and using their cable modem for internet access. There lies the problem. Only by lowering the security level to Minimum will IRC log on and work.
I don’t like having the firewall in the modem set to Minimum. There is a Custom option that allows selective blocking. What among these does the IRC channel need?
The Custom says:
LAN-to-WAN: Allow all
WAN-to-LAN: Block as per below and enable IDS
IDENT (port 113)
Block http (TCP port 80, 443)
Block Peer-to-peer applications
Block IDENT (port 113)
What does IRC need among the list above?
