then something is broken.  
  - did you use `make install`?
  - is /var/dcc/map owned by the same UID to which cdcc is set-UID?

Those consistent "not answering" results imply that you have some
kind of firewall that is blocking UDP port 6277.

Please read what the `man dccproc` command should produce on your system,
or http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/dcc-tree/dccproc.html
or http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/dcc-tree/dccproc.html

I meant "msg-file" to be the name of a file containing a mail message.
As usual, the first lines before a blank line should be the RFC-2822
headers.  The rest of the file should be the body of the message.

Are there any complaints from dccproc in your system log?  
That might be /var/log/maillog  /var/log/messages or some other
file depending on how you have configured syslogd on your system.
