Very slow file tranfer with kopete


Hello,

I've just recently installed FC5 and most things works like clockwork. Filetransfers via the nstant messenger kopete however is very slow....VERY slow! I realize it must have something to do with my firewall, but as I'm fairly new to linux I have really no clue what to do about it.

Services like ssh or just surfing the webb is as fast as ever (10mbit)...but geting a 4mb file from a friend takes over 30 minutes.

Anyone?

Well, is your friend on a dial up? I assume you are going through AOL to send that file?

No my friend has a 0.5 mbit line, and the tranfer rates using windows and msn is usually much faster. Now I can't remember what AOL means... sounds very familiar though.

It should also be mentioned that I have some issues getting my bittorrent client (Azareus) to work fast in linux. It has told me to open some UDP ports which I have done. But nothing gets the speed up. I had the same problem in windows until I changed to the more crappy windows firewall.

AOL is America On Line, http://www.aol.com/

What chat medium are you using for Kopete? MSN? Yahoo? ICQ/AIM? Jabber? It could be one of those

As for the firewall how did you open the ports and which ones? azureus can be quite a pain with firewalls, and especially NAT from a router

yes windows firewall is very crappy, steer clear :P

hello again,

I'm using MSN via kopete. I know msn isn't usually super fast... but this is way worse than it is when I'm using windows.

And about the firewall and azureus,

When I used a good firewall in windows and the problem occured (azureus asked me to open UPD 11307 and I did), nothing changed. I'm thinking that if can't get it to work in windows I'm sure I won't be able to get it to work in linux! I have opened both tcp and upd port 11307 but there is no improvement (just as it were no improvement in windows. until I shut the firewall off.)

What to do? really thankful for any help.
