Make sure to check Remember my answer, and do not ask me again for this application.
•DC++ should now be set up!
The above is a quick way to set up DC++ on your computer which should work for most people. By default, DC++ uses random ports for traffic; sometimes this is a good thing and other times it's better to specify which port it can use.
Follow the guide below on how to lock down DC++ to use a single inbound port (not required!). This is not needed if you run DC++ in passive mode.
•Open up the main screen for Sygate:
Click on Applications.
•This will list all the applications Sygate knows about on your computer that have tried to access the Internet.
Select DC++ and click on Advanced.
* Put the port number you randomly selected into the Local Ports section for both TCP and UDP.
* Uncheck Allow ICMP traffic. Since DC++ doesn't respond to pings, there is no point enabling it for a possible ping flood.
•Now DC++ is set up with a more secure firewall rule.
