Well, I'm still getting the error but at least with the DCC Simulation mode
I can DO something. :)

Were you talking about putting that Ip here?

"* Unable to resolve local host"
try with the ip and not the "localhost" word.

about your password, are you sure it doesnt crush and rerun with the -m
flag? The -m is to be run once in order to create the userfile. Try to run
the bot with the -nt flags and then try to connect to it. This way you will
be able to see the error it has :)
