I'm currently running the client on two masqueraded machines, so there's
no inherent conflict between the client and IPmasq.  I'm running
masquerading on a 2.0.29 box as well, RedHat 4.1, with the firewall set up
to accept tcp and udp packets on all ports (except netbios, because an ISP
close to mine on the network was having trouble keeping packets to
itself <sigh>).

Is it possible that you have a forwarding rule which might be blocking the
packets?  If IRC works, it doesn't sound like you've limited it to the
lower 1024.  What about the rc5 ini file itself -- is the configuration
file on the masqed machines identical to the one on the non-firewalled box
you say is working?
