is the person u downloadin from runnin windows xp, if so that particular person u tryin to recieve files from might have the firewall security turned on. This can be deactivated by goin to the advanced tab in the network connections.

cos if u can send then i dont see it been a fault on ur end...unless i over looked something

I don't think i can be much help but i read a message about a month or so ago on this forum which explained... something to do with the way ADSL works and well its the same for me on all the messenger systems ICQ,Yahoo and MSN , file sends/receives just don't happen.

Are you on the low cost ADSL plan? (i.e. £19.99 pm) as this doesn't allow P2P so maybe it is also stopping your MSN transfers....

I'm on the full ADSL package and have no problems with swapping regardless of O/S or messenger version!

@wildmind: are you using a router-modem or usb/pci modem? if router, what brand and model?

coz i have the same problem with the thread starter but its because my router apparently is noy uPnP compliant, ive upgraded the firmware and now im able to receive files thru messenger but i still cant send one, i cant have video conference and i cant have audio converstation

everything is fine with yahoo messenger, i can send/rcv files, can have video and voice chat

for the thread starter (sorry didnt got your name), are using a firewall or did u enable firewall of your windowsXP? how about the person you're getting it from, try to get files from other buddies that uses a diff OS to isolate where the problem is

hope this helps
