Windows Messenger problems

I have just been using Messenger to contact my son. Everthing appears to be working ok and is fast 'cos we are both on broadband. However he tried to send me a file , and I tried to do the same, but we both got this message
'We could not send this file because the connection is blocked. Please contact your network administrator or ISP, they may be able to enable file transfers.'.
Has anyone any ideas? Cry

Have you sent files previously? What are the filesizes? If you have sent files previously, when did your ability to do so stop?

I am using a Solwise SAR110 ADSL router (supplied by PlusNet)
In Services>IP Filter Configuration I have the Security level set to 'High' .
Does anyone think that this could be the problem?

Sorry Smithclan I didn't see your reply. Yes I was able to do it in the past and thinking back it was before i changed the security to high
