to chime in i've had the same problem as well. I have been successful once or twice sending stuff but normally not. When i get better at programming i was going to look at the code and try coming up with a solution myself
I don't know what the exact problem is, but I have read up on this before. I believe it's a problem with the protocol, as well as the client software. In my experience, I have had problems with transfers in every client I have tried. While the official aim seems to work, it's still pretty flakey..
I just use other methods..like going through an ftp server, or using ssh, etc. I wouldn't expect this bug to be fixed all that quickly.
ps..I'm sure that somewhere along the line there are compatitbility issues between the various oses..sending files to your windows buddies and all.
I have the same problem and I have tried aim, yahoo, and jabber.
I believe the problem is FC 5 not gaim. I have a slackware box using
gaim with oscar server I can send files to FC 5 with gaim and receive them but I can not send any from FC5 to slackware box....
I also tried this same experiment with friend using different computer with FC 5 installed...
friends FC 5 could receive from Slackware but not send files...
we only tried this with AIM
