Best MSN Messenger File Transfer Client

What is the best MSN messenger client in terms of file transfer. I currently use GAIM but it is painfully slow after the first 20 seconds. Does anyone know anything that can make it faster.

open port 6891 on router. this port is used by the msn-protocol for direct filetransfer, if it isn't open it will do an indirect transfer throu one of the servers of msn which is painfully slow

an other msn-client that even can do videoconferencing (webcam-function almost) on linux and mac
