Linksys, Mandrake 10 and Messengers.

Hello back,

Let me describe the problem as clear as I can:

a) I get connected to the web through a Liinksys router + cablemodem.

b) I use Mandrake 10 official.

c) When using aMSN or any messenger, I can only receive files from Windows users. I CAN'T SEND
The other person's computer shows a message telling him this:

"your message cannot be saved. Its name may contain unreadable characters, its name plus path may be too long, or the folder may be read-only, deleted, or otherwise unavailable. Please specify another file name and/or choose a different folder"

This happens with any file I try to send.

Well, I really don't know what to do. Please, help me. I will really appreciate it .

Thank you very much.
