Hi, from ip_nat_irc.c

-- snip --
 * Module load syntax:
 * insmod ip_nat_irc.o ports=port1,port2,...port<MAX_PORTS>
 * please give the ports of all IRC servers You wish to connect to.
 * If You don't specify ports, the default will be port 6667
-- snip --

You should change your insmod line for ip_nat_irc to include all port
you're supposed to connect to.

Hope this helps

Best regards.
