Hello guys!
I have installed UnrealIRCd on my machine.
I am having a Router and also DDNS (From my ISP Provider)
I am having Anope IRC Services.

Everything is running fine (Server/Services)
The problem is that I want to make my mIRC Server to be available for the Public.
I can connect to my Server from the same machine on which is running using both / Localhost / DDNS, but once I try from anywhere else I see the following:

* Unable to connect to server (Permission denied)
* Connect cancelled

What do you need to help me (Any configs or network details) ???

Hi there,

From what you've suggested, your ircd server is only listening on the localhost port, meaning it can only connect to itself. I would suggest that you edit your configuration file to change it to listen on the LAN IP of your machine, presuming it has a static IP. For example,, if that is the IP of your machine.

Then try within your LAN from a different workstation and reply back?

I hope this helps.

Moved thread to off topic as this pertains to port forwarding, not Unreal IRCd configuration.
