DCC? IRC? OS X? Help!!!

Hopefully this question makes sense, I know next-to-nothing about IRC. I'm trying to download some things off of IRC. I can always connect to a few people's severs, but most of the time I get an error message.

The message tells me that the server is using a different server method, and that I need to type /dccserver something something +59. Then it helpfully informs me that this is a mIRC command. Great, I'm not using mIRC.
Right now I'm using jIRCii in OS X, which seems to be ok, but it's kind of hard to figure out, especially if, like me, you have no idea what you're doing. I've tried forwarding the ports on my router to the ports these helpful messages tell me I need to, but they still won't let me connect.
A little googling around led me to the fact that apparently no OS X apps fully support DCC and port-forwarding as of yet, or something like that, I'm still an IRC noob, so these things don't really make much sense to me. Is there a better IRC program for OS X I should be using?
