Question Cant send files with aMSN. . .but I can receive??

Hi, I'm using aMSN and love it, theres only one problem, I cant send files with aMSN. I can receive but not send. . .its odd. My starting point for file transfers is port 6891 and I use a direct connection which uses port 1863. I have DSL and I've always had problems sending files with messenger progs. . I had this problem back when I ran windows too. I turned on IP pass through on my modem thinking that may help. As far as I know I'm not behind a firewall and I'm not running any firewall software. I've ran out of ideas. Any help is appreciated.

Thumbs up

Hi!! I got the same problem. So i added these few lines in my rc.firewall-script:

echo "allow msn"
$IPT -A INPUT -p tcp --destination-port 6891 -j ACCEPT
$IPT -A INPUT -p udp --destination-port 6891 -j ACCEPT

And now im able to send and receice files through MSN.
Good luck
