	Are you absolutely certain that your firewall is doing the blocking? -- LOG 
the packets please and let us see.... 

	When you loaded the ip_conntrack_irc module did you set the server ports you 
would be connecting to?  --> modinfo ip_conntrack_irc for the details, you 
need to have the IRC server ports you are connecting to in there.

	P.S. I've had problems with users on RR getting dcc transfers started, but 
the  connection dies .. I'm not sure where the problem lies -- but its 
something I've seen.
