One thing I am noting is 3 diff eqbc server links in firewall exceptions when I go to change permissions.

all i can suggest is temporally disabling any firewall / antivirus and try, to help pinpoint
as i said earlier, if you have the waiting for connection box up, and the /echo commands report OFFLINE, then something on your system is blocking it

all you should need to run is the EQBCServer.exe / Macroquest.exe (as admin)
when in game, it should auto connect to 127.0.0.1 (default server address) - that would need to change if running other eq clients from other pc(s)
