    I've noticed that when I try to send a file through windows messenger on and the fire wall on it does'nt send. Is there anyway around this apart form disconecting and turning off the fire wall?

    Create a firewall rule to allow the following ports through it:

    6891-6901 (thats all ports from 6891 through 6901)
