  1. #1

    Default Kopete file transfer

    Hello

    I have seen that each time I try to send a file through Kopete it works fine
    but when I am getting a file it always fails. help me find the problem and
    suggest ways of solving it.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Perhaps a little more information will be helpful:

    What protocol are you using? [XMPP (Google), Yahoo, MSN, etc.]
    What is the client of the people to whom you send files? Their OS?
    Is your firewall on? Is their firewall on? Are you behind a router?
    Have you tried transferring with another client? (GAIM, etc.)

    The answer to these questions might bring you the solution.

    I have noticed that when transferring over XMPP (Jabber, Google) I need a port open in the firewall to transfer anymore than 3 KB/s. An then sometimes the transfer times out. When transferring over MSN, the speed is always slow and frequently cuts off before 1 MB is transferred. (No one wants to be a service for large p2p transfers.)

    Hope this helps,
    g

    Thanks for the insight. I am using a Yahoo account. My friend is using Yahoo
    (version 8 most probably) on windows system. I am not behind a router. Both
    of us have firewalls on. I have not tried with any other client yet.

    Same problem here with KDE4 Kopete and icq. I can send files, but can't receive any. Icq file transfer works fine for me with Kopete 0.12.7 (KDE3.5) and with pidgin.

    Which ports do i need to open on my FW2 and router(maybe) and its the same for send and recieve? I cant recieve nothing, it opens the transfer box but no activity at all. its certainly blocked by something.

    Hi again.
    3 months, one openSUSE release and some Kopete versions later (now 11.1 64-bit and Kopete 0.60.82), I still can't receive files from ICQ buddies. The internet is not very helpful in this case. Even bugs.kde.org has no entry on this. So it seems to be an exotic problem.
    Reconsidering the firewall idea, I've been looking in /etc/services for ICQ and Kopete but it didn't help. "PORT 4000 also used by ICQ" that's what I've got. Opening that port made no difference.
    I don't have any idea on how to get some output useful for debugging. .xsession-erros tells me
    Code:
    kopete(29564)/kopete (oscar - raw protocol) FileTransferTask::socketError: socket error:  QAbstractSocket::ConnectionRefusedError  :  "Connection refused"
    If anyone has an idea, please tell me. I am happy about any help. Thanks!
