    hmm i have been thinking about this and i came up with something but am not sure if it is logical or not. i was thinking i could have the modem go straight to my pc. then from my pc. i could have it go to the switch and use my pc to assign the local IP's or have it go to the router then the switch. not sure. i heard the router has to come before everything. or right after the modem. but anyways. could i get some feelback on this idea.

    reiterate -

    I once again ask what kind of router and what sort of configuration you did to it... the reason for this is because friends of mine were having similar troubles when I looked up the router online I was able to determine that the router had built in firewalling capabilites (would there really be a point to a router otherwise?) and these were configurable through a simple web interface... is there a port to hook up a console? are you able to telnet, or http to the routers internal IP? what baout external?

    Another note is that if you are on a PRIVATE network, specifically university, hospital, or other professional organization, contact the SYSADMIN regarding this... At this university the broadband that's available WAS fast as hell... thet recently impletments LODAS of filters which made file=sharing impossible... it also really did a toll on IRC file sharing... it is possible to get around them but it took me nearly a month to get it to work on the campus network and then everyone wanted me to show them how - really not worth it but it did pay well! It is also totally legal

    Even another thought is if you have a private firewall running on your system... be sure that it's set to allow file sharing across the ports... there is a also a switch which will allow file-sharing on firewalled computers in the settings of PIRCH and MIRC -> I can't remember it exactly and I don't know about LINUX-based clients...

    If you hook your computer up first, you will not need the router since your computer will be acting as one.

    If you are going to build a router check out "Smoothwall"

    http://www.smoothwall.org/

    There are minimal hardware requirements for smoothwall too,
    if you have a Pentium 1, 16MB of RAM, a 500MB HDD, and two nic cards, you can run smoothwall.

    Check the firewalling, routing and NATing HOWTOs on tldp.org and netfilter.org. They should tell you just about anything you'll ever need to know. Especially, check the NAT HOWTO on netfilter.org. As it will tell you, you will need to NICs in your PC. It will work for DCC once you enable the modules ip_nat_irc and ip_conntrack_irc.

    Naturally; just forward the port whatever computer you're running the server on. If you're running the server on the router itself, it will work by itself, since it's connected directly to the internet.
