    How do you allow messenger to transfer files? Me & a friend are trying but it refuses to co-operate both ends.

    Don't know. It's stuffed for now anyways. I turned off my firewall & my friend is gone. Whether it was that or he had to go I don't know. I'll have to try again another time.

    Have to see what the go is when I reboot. :(

    If either of you have routers, you will need to enable DMZ on them to allow packets to pass through.

    Nope no routers. It might be service that I have disabled.

    Yeah I think that's it Bretenn. Some service that I turned off is needed for windows messenger. (I haven't used messenger in a long time) Next time he is online I'll try turning them back on one at a time till I get the right one.
    Thanx all. :)
