Slow file transfer rate between Amsn and Messenger?

why the transfer rate of files among microsoft messenger and amsn is so slow? when I switch to windows the transfer rate goes up and works like it should...
both ends are running broadband.
could this be because of some rules on my linux ?
Im running suse 10 and I think the firewall is enable.
Still the link is established. oh I have enabled direct conection to the internet in amsn using port 1683, file transfer options in amsn says detect ip address automatically.

Well this is always going to be slow. "MicroSloth" will not allow a direct connect through there servers to a "MSN Messenger" user. Sense we (linux users) use other messengers that just use the MSN Protocol.
