I have major issues with this programme, I have been banned from my university hub cause DC is not sending them a desription of available tags!
Reviewing 1.1.0 (Jul 6, 2005)
1. Web site of author no longer works. Its blank.
2. Client will not retrieve a list of hubs when public button is pressed.
Even the very war macdc++ client from sourceforge is more useable....but thats awful too.
This software is dead.

I've tried windows DC & DC++ & the mac version really is primitive in comparison. With each OSX update new problems are faced. About time DC for OSX was UPDATED! In fact way over-time to fix it up in preparation for OSX Tiger & get rid of the little problems it has. It's not the most share friendly app either .. very temperamental & inconsistent in that & other regards.
(eggroll sounds like you need to forward a port: Look under apple here: http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm)

yeah i got it working, it was pretty simple (im not sure if i did it correctly or if i just managed some sort of jury rig)
go > utilities > airport admin utility
select your airport and hit configure
go to the port mapping tab and add a new port
i havent done this in a while, as i havent had my own internet connection, but here's what i remember
public port: 32000
private port: 32000
if you go to system preferences > network, your airport summary should tell you what private ip has been assigned to your computer by your router. this goes in private address. in my case, 10.0.1.2
update the airport.
now open dc++ and go to preferences (in whichever client you're using it should be really similar). if you go to whatismyip.com - this site will tell you what your isp has assigned to you as your IP addess. you can also find it in the network settings somewhere.
ok so in dc++, go to preferences, network tab, select active and hit the advanced button.
address: the IP address you pulled from whatismyip.com
download port: 32000
search port: 32000
i used 32000 because, for some weird reason, whatever port i arbitrarily decided to open and use, dc++ would change the advanced setting from my port to 32000. so i went back and opened that port instead, and i was active.
you should be set. let me know if something is still ****ed up.

This is a good product, at least it could be.
the Mac version gets me booted from hubs because of the tags, not being right(im not sure what that means but its not fair)
I am sure you could fix this with not too much effort. there has not been a Mac update in ages.
Please do a Mac update
