sending out files through MSN Messenger

I cannot send out anything over MSN Messenger. Anyone else having this problem? It says:

"We could not send this file because the connection is blocked. Please contact your network administrator or Internet service provider; they may be able to enable file transfers"

I have tried both with my ZoneAlarm on and off. I have been able to send files out through ICQ but couldn't receive them there. :confused:

I can receive files though....Is this a problem associated with the Plus! extension or something?

You also need to turn off the XP firewall. Go to Control Panel> Network Connections> right click on your connection> properties. It's under the 'advanced' tab. You need to open some ports in ZoneAlarm if you want to keep a firewall running during transfer. If you don't want the hassle, just close ZoneAlarm until your done transferring and then crank it back up.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
