You probably need to use passive mode. Or setup portforwarding/open firewall to use active mode.

See dc++ FAQs for more information.

in Ubuntu, I used ufw for opening some ports, which is pretty simple, and looks like:
$ sudo allow 2000
(will open port: 2000, for both TCP and UDP)

Then I've entered 2000 in the linuxdcpp's Settings.
