I am running XP and SYGATE personl firewall.
I have given ICQ permission to go through the firewall but for some reason people can't send me files over ICQ....it prompts for the request, I accept and it just sits there.

Any ideas?

it might be because of the 'direct connection' settings in your ICQ client. By default I think this is set to 'use dynamic port numbers'.

find this setting and manually define the ports that should be used for direct connections. add these ports to to your firewall config.

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
