    How are you and your friend connected to MSN? If either of you are connected via proxy or via a secure connection, that would cause that kind of problem. Otherwise, try upgrading to the latest version.

    One of you might be behind a firewall...such as a hardware router...specifically Linksys.
    Linksys is known to not have the greatest liking with IM clients and sending files.
