Hi Christian,

What you describe cannot be happening. Something else is allowing the
traffic to pass. Could you please post your config file?


PS: When you have the "server irc accept" statement, if you change it to:

server irc accept log "IRC"

and then start an IRC conversation, does it log "IRC" packets in the
system log? It should if this statement matches the traffic.
