    Are you using a firewall or router?

    Oh, then it's another thing. Hardware routers often have special support to let incoming connections through for specific programs. Seems yours has support for some IM programs but not for IRC DCC.
    If you had a Linux router, then you could just load the ip_*_irc modules to let DCC connections through.

    What do you mean? Does it enable you to do DCC transfers when you're logged in as root?
