AIM File Transfer on Direcway?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We just had the Direcway (or now "HughesNet") DW7000 installed today.  Speeds are good, testing over 700k earlier this afternoon.  We cannot get file transfers over AIM to work properly.  When trying to receive a file, it says the connection has been dropped by the host.  We can't send anything out either.  This was something we were able to do on dial-up.  I was wondering if there are any host settings that I need to change?  I am having no trouble connecting to AIM.  Just the file transfers.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

i turned firewall off and it still wouldn't work.  i'm on apple, which lessens the chance of a virus, and i just came from a dial-up connection that allowed me to send files yesterday!  so....i'm thinking it has something to do with the host/port settings, but i'm really not certain.

AIM file transfer on DirecWay works sometimes.  I have had it work before, but generally it doesn't work.  Receiving files has worked more often than sending, and if the person you're sending to is behind a firewall or NAT, chances are it won't work.  I would recommend FTP for transferring files, although you would need a server that you could both access.  Email works as well for files under 10MB.

Im not sure of a way around it, but there should be some other way for you to transfer files. Some type of p2p maybe, or you could upload them to a free file hosting site.

php would know the answer to this.. I think he said it was something about the proxy system.. he can give you a better explanation.
