The FAQ (http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/chatzilla/faq/chatzilla-faq.html, Section 2.9) doesn't give any information about setting ports for DCC, or troubleshooting. If you have anything you want me to check, let me know. Next week, I will have a chance to test through a different ISP.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform any dcc function.

Actual Results:  
Note that the function fails.

Expected Results:  
Sends, receives, and chats should connect.

Blame's on me for breaking dcc-send. My patch from was bad, sorry!
this.prefs = client.prefs needs removing now. It was removed for dcc-chat, though, so as to why that's broken, no clue. Reopening 281172 in a bit.

I'm calling 'charset issue'  on the nickname with ^^ in it. Try using dcc-accept without parameters, or only with 'sid', and it should find the correct nickname by itself. Or just click accept, of course...
Depends on: 281172
Ever confirmed: true

I tested with latest trunk ChatZilla. The server I used had casemapping set to ascii, and I used mIRC and X-Chat for "sid^^".

dcc-accept - same as reported. "/dcc-accept sid" worked.
dcc-send - fixed by attachment 204875 [details] [diff] [review].
dcc-chat - mIRC showed "DCC Chat from tH rejected (invalid parameters)". X-Chat showed "* Received a malformed DCC request from tH. * Contents of packet: DCC CHAT chat pLß³[TÝèzðz"

Next time I'm on, probably tonight, I'll find a volunteer with a letters only nick to test with and let you know what I get.

Ignore what I said about dcc-chat. I tried another ISP and it works fine.

Patch to allow indexOf matching as well as regexp

Okay, here's the problem. the <nickname> and <file> parameters are read as regexps. While that's normally not a problem, as you may know '^' in a regexp means 'match the start of a line'. Obviously, that fails horribly in this case. There's nothing in the help text about this, so I partially blame us. On the other hand, it's hardly not functional - just using /dcc-accept to use the last request would have sufficed (and that *is* in the help).

So, This patch fixes dcc-accept, dcc-close and dcc-decline to also check <nickname> and, where applicable, <file> to also match the literal string you put in, in case it contains regexp characters that you don't want to be interpreted as such. It also adjusts the help texts to note the fact that you can use regular expressions, which is a feature by itself :) .

I'm betting the chat offer not connecting is a problem to do with your firewall and/or router settings. Double-check them; I have not had problems on properly configured machines :). If you have a router, or a firewall that doesn't care about app level when handling incoming requests, set a port (range) and/or list of available port(s) (ranges), and tell the router/firewall to send traffic on that port through.

Other than that, I think all the issues in this bug have been fixed. If, after applying the patch I posted on a current nightly (the dcc-send issue was fixed a few hours ago, see the dependency bug), you still experience problems, please try using the #chatzilla channel on moznet in order for us to debug/troubleshoot the problem with you. Right now the report you made doesn't include info that may be relevant, such as the casemapping of the server you're on, the charset you're using, etc. etc.

Nit: semi-colon and blank line here.

>-            if ((!nickname || this.files[k].user.unicodeName.match(n)) &&

You didn't change the filename matching per your comment and locale changes.

Alright, note for checkin: it should be

see the constructor for CIRCDCCFileTransfer. Note that this was broken originally as well :(

As I side note, I never got an "Accept" pop-up, either. I'm not going to stress it too much at this point. Given my travels tomorrow, I won't be able to download and test until Monday daytime. I'll hit up #chatzilla (is that moznet.edu?) on Monday to test in real time.
