    I have a Dynalink RTA1025W modem/router and it has a pre-configured rule for IRC. It port forwards the ports needed as shown here.

    Could I replicate this rule in Look 'n' Stop ?
    I am not referring to the ident rule for port 113 which is available as mIRC.rie.

    Hi traviscn :)

    1)

    With the Enhanced rules set of LnS all TCP programs are managed by the general rule "TCP: Allow most common Internet applications" ...

    If you create specific rule for an application, this rule must be placed immediatly before (or at the top) of this general rule.

    [By general rule means a rule for any application, and specific rule, a rule for one or more application: in this case you have to add this (or these) application(s) in the rule with the button "Applications..." in the rule editing windows.]

    2)

    For Irc, the most common used remote ports are:

    {IRC} 6667
    {Irc2} 6668
    {Irc3} 6669

    and, as a local server port:

    {IDENT} 113

    3)

    For Mirc there is some ports used specificly by this application both in TCP and UDP (check the LnS rules for Mirc in the LnS web site for this...)


    4)

    Also most application (Mirc is an exception...) used the local port 1025 to 5000 in W xp . 49152-65535 for Vista and 60000 to 65000 xp sp2 Internet Connection Sharing ...

    The rules you shows in your post looks to be related to XP (1024 to 5000 as local ports).

    5)

    Normally the specific IRC rules looks like this:

    Rule # 1 for IDENT

    Ethernet: IP
    Protocol: TCP
    Packets: in and out

    (left side of rule editing window)
    local IP addr.: equal My @
    local ports: equal 113

    (right side of rule editing window)
    Remote IP: all (no entry)
    Remote ports: all (no entry)

    Application: the executable of the Irc program

    The rule must be placed immediatly before (or a the top) of the general rule
    "TCP: block incomming connections"

    Rule # 2

    Ethernet: IP
    Protocol: TCP
    Packets: in and out

    (left side of rule editing window)
    local IP addr.: equal My @
    local ports: in Local or Between A-B: 1024 , 5000

    (right side of rule editing window)
    Remote IP: Between A-B : 6667, 6669
    Remote ports: all (no entry)

    Application: the executable of the Irc program

    This rule must be placed immediatly before (or at the top) of the general rule
    "TCP:allow most common Internet applications"


    In your router setup Ident is shows as using UDP... strange.

    You can modify the rule # 1 accordingly by changing the protocol from TCP to TCP or UDP.

    Hope this help. Let us know.

    :)

    thanks Climenole.
    I modified some of your rules I found in another thread like so

    mIRC Ident Server & DCCServer.JPG
    mIRC Chat & Send.JPG
    mIRC  Chat & Send 2.JPG

    Should I place them just above the TCP : Block incoming connections rule ?

    Hi traviscn :)

    Only the first one (ident port 113) ...

    (For Mirc the port are different: use the rules from LnS web site.
    Same place for the Ident rule...)

    First rule: the remote ports (right side: all ports!)
    Third rule: do the opposite. 1024 to 5000 left side, 6660 to 6668 right side.

    :)
