CONNECTION TIMEOUT: Can't download ?
Setting up Active Mode
Do you get Connection Timeout when you try to download? Your searches don't work?
If you use a router (such as a DSL Modem or Wireless Hub) it is likely that your real Internet IP address is getting translated to a local area network (LAN) address such as 192.168.???.???. This allows you to share one Internet IP between several PCs.
In this situation you might have to use a Passive Connection in DC++ connection settings. Unfortunately, with a Passive Connection you can only download from Active Connection members and your searches are limited. So lets get Active Mode working for you... 
A) In DC++ connection settings do three things:
  1. enter your internet IP address (visit http://www.lawrencegoetz.com/programs/ipinfo/ to find it)
  2. enter 1412 as the TCP and UDP port
  3. select manual port forwarding (option 3)
B) OK we need two bits of information to proceed:
  1. find out your LAN IP address. START | RUN then type 'CMD' <enter>. In the black DOS window type 'IPCONFIG' <enter> and note your IP Address (should be 192.168.???.???).
  2. what make and model of router do you have?

C) Finally we need to forward data coming in on ports TCP1412 and UDP1412 to your specific PC at 192.168.???.???:

  1. Visit the web page http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/DC++/DC++index.htm
  2. Choose your make and model of router from the list.
  3. About 1/3 down the page enter the port of 1412 and your 192.168.???.??? IP address.
  4. Follow carefully the remaining instructions to set up your router.
