Hi guys,


first off a little brown nosing - Openfire is super sweet - we''re trialing it here at work and its great - awesome way to stop staff wasting too much time on IM to external people.


i have a question tho and this might be a repost, some of our users are allowed to use the MSN transport - which seems to work fine except for file transfer. They can''t send nor recieve from/to msn contacts?


I''ve tried several different IM clients. turned off firewalls and/or opened every port imaginable.


So, i guess the question is: is file transfer thru the MSN transport allowed and what do i have to do to get it working:


Our setup is:

Openfire 3.3.2 installed in Win2003 Server with SQL2000

WinXP clients with either Spark Client or Xeus client version 1
