# How to configure Xchat and IRC server to transfer files?

How do I configure Xchat to send files?

My setup:

hardware router: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx example.com
|
Ubuntu Server with IRC server: 192.168.1.2

Local machines: 192.168.1.x


My aim is to allow to send files between the local machines. By now, they are able to talk on the local IRC channel.

• which ports do I need to open on the router?
• what do I need to configure on the server?
• how to configure XChat on the clients?
• how to troubleshoot/debug the problems?
