File Transfer in Trillian



i have MSN and ICQ running in trillian but i cant seem to send ne files, they always cancel automatically. i can receive files. i am wondering where to configure my firewall to send files, like in ICQ it has a special section to select I AM BEHIND A FIREWALL.

Trillian File transfer doesn't work

Hello all,
I'd like to ask to raise this question again because like the earlier post on this forum, I am also unable to send files when I'm connected to MSN. I can receive files no problem but it always cancels when my friend tries to accept.

I'm using Norton's Internet Security and NAV 2002.. all set to default levels with ad blocking. I'd like to ditch Messenger alltogether but find I have to go back to it in order to transfer files.

I am running XP Home
Athlon XP1800 1.53ghz
MSI-K7T266 Pro2 mobo
512mb DDR
WD 60g HD 7200
Lite on 24x CDRW
ATI Radeon 7500 AIW 64mb
Creative SB Audigy GamerX
Logitech Z560 4.1, Epson C80 printer

Everything else runs fine except for Trillian on file send.
Anyone come across this?



You can not send files via MSN when using a NAT. It will not allow you too. Also, ICQ I don't have an answer for, sicne I have the same problem.

same problem here with msn. i can receive files, but can't send. yes, i have a router and yes i've been to the official microshaft site looking for which ports to open. it still doesn't work.


Let me repeat: You can not send files via MSN when using a NAT.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
