Self explanatory.
I canīt send files on Msn Messenger, but I can recieve files.
When I try to send files, the reciever accepts the file, then nothing happens, and it times out and the file transfer is cancelled.

Hey there Grantax.

It sounds like the problem does not lay on your side and is probably the person on the other side with a problem.

Does this problem happen with all your contacts or just the one?

Most probably the firewall settings on the other persons computer is blocking you from sending anything...

Ask them turn the settings down a noch, or you can give me a little bit more info. on the other persons firewall and I will give you simpler steps to making it come through.

Let me know, Cool :whistling:

The other person turned off his firewall, but it didnīt work.
This is happening with all my contacts, but in some rare cases the sending works.

Anytime... :whistling:

The problem was that the version MSN was way out of date (v4.7) and all it needed was an update (Live)

Cool :blink:
