    Now I'm prety sure that it isn't norton what is blocking because I uninstalled that. I have windows xp and sp1. I also have telewell ea716, but is shouldn't do any effect because on other computer what is connected to same modem, dc search is working.
    Help please!

    Hi Goljat Do you use a router? if so u need to go onto your router cofig page (normally 192.168.2.1 but not always) and configure the DMZ to allow the Router to place you outside of the built in firewall (not a problem if ur using firewall software) once you have done this go to www.whatismyip.com/ to get your correct ip and make sure that is typed into connection settings in DC++!! if you do not use a Router just do the last step (go to www.whatismyip.com/ to get your correct ip and make sure that is typed into connection settings in DC++!!) Let me know if this helps at all
