Thread: pidgin transfer failing

  1. #1

    Default pidgin transfer failing

    I don't know if this was a repetitive issue posted in these forums but, I didn't see any so I made a new post.

    For some reason, when I use pidgin to do file transfer to aim, It always seemed to fail when I tried to transfer stuff to my friend but, not when he transfers stuff to me.

    It works when he is using Opensuse or any other linux distro but, not when he is on Windows. Anyone have a clue?

    I would probably check the network setup first... should the OS really
    matter? Not really, but it's hard to say what the windows "firewall" is
    trying to do. In theory there should be logs for it telling what is
    going on though I've never seen any. If you have an established
    connection between two applications and they try to send more data over
    that connection that shouldn't be a problem but, again, it depends on
    how it is being done. Worst case get a LAN trace and see what the two
    boxes are doing as they communicate but otherwise make sure nothing else
    is strange about the setup (different boxes, different networks,
    different router configurations, etc.).

    Good luck.

    How do I start checking my network setup. I don't know how to since I don't fiddle around with technology enough to know too much.
