The behavior you describe could happen if the config file is broken. IIRF is not very tolerant of bad syntax in the config file. Check the log to see if it is choking.

This could also happen if there is no configuration file (ini file) at all, or if you have put the ini file in a location where IIRF will not find it (which, to IIRF, is the same thing).

It's a known issue that if you have no config file, bad things happen. If you want to see that fixed, log a defecct and we'll prioritize it.

thanks.
