#6234: Sending Files To iChat Users Fails
Reporter:  mog0    |       Owner:  MarkDoliner    
    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new            
Priority:  minor   |   Component:  AIM            
 Version:  2.4.2   |    Keywords:  iChat Send File
 Pending:  0       |  
 When I attempt to send a file to a user using iChat on Mac the waiting for
 user to accept dialog appears but when the other user accepts the file the
 transfer immediately fails. This happens with multiple users on my LAN. I
 am using Pidgin 2.4.3 (version not available in menu on reporting system)
 on Vista Business SP1 32bit running in Bootcamp on an iMac 24" with 4GB
 RAM. I have Bonjour 1.0.4 installed.

 The Mac users are all using OSX 10.5.

 The same behaviour happens when using both AIM contact and the Bonjour
 contact for the same users. I have never successfully transferred a file
 using Pidgin.

 When I am running OSX on the same computer transfers using iChat -> iChat
 work so no firewall issues on the LAN.
