    Direct Connect, you are stuck using passive mode, no way around it that I know of. For AIM, i'm not sure but I think you can open the port it uses for file sharing/im connection, but I don't know it offhand. As far as IRC, that is probably the hardest one, some networks will work and some won't, not sure how to help you with that one.

    aim forward port 4443 to the computer using aim

    irc forward port range 1024 - 1100 to allow DCC transfers

    the same goes for DC you need to find what port or port range is used and forward it to the required computer

    ya go to your routers control panel select advanced then goto port forwarding it should have a button at the bottom that says port range forwarding then fill in the range as 1024 - 1100 and then select the IP to forward it to

    if you have any further questions ill be hom later tonight hit me up on aim zyiro
