    Nope. I guess it's not supported. At least I've seen a topic for Google Summer of Code to implement this ..

    It can be done, but its a volatile and tenative technology at best, if your behind a firewall/nat of any sort, your gonna have to put some effort into it.

    I gave up on this about 5 months ago or so after trying to do it different ways and came up with crap. I think I got it to work like 3 times total in like 2 months of work. It was hopeless. But maybe it'll be better supported in the next release if there ever is one.

    The last version of GAIM is actually slower with file transfers on MSN protocol than it used to be. I always get transfers of 1kbps. Does this go out on a specific port?
