hm. I don't think it's a good idea to run it under root - nobody should do
as well..

I had similar problem with outgoing connections to one specific ip-node.
The other node uses probably vmodem or smth and solution was to use -t 1
option of ifcico.

Try connecting to port 60179 instead of 60177.. That should invoke
receiving ifcico with -t1..
