    Thnaks again, Costa.  = )  And thanks John Dalton too. You were correct,
my route all was freeing the irc traffic.
    Just one more thing: Should I not use the statement "route all accept" ?
Or just dropping the traffic I don't want to be routed some lines above
resolves everything?

    Thanks again for your attention,

Christian Prediger Appel

Do you run an IRC server on the Linux gateway? The "server irc " statement
is placed to an INTERFACE meaning that you run an IRC server on that

I suspect you are running an IRC client on the LAN and the IRC server is
somewhere in the internet. If this the case, you have to put a:

route irc drop

in your lan2internet ROUTER.
