    Unhappy Firewall Blocking MSN

    Ok I have a FreeBSD 4.2 or a closer version installed on a PIII 450 with 256mb ram and the box acts as a gateway for my 1MB broadband. Problem is from my Windows XP box I can not send files through to the other person, (using MSN) but I can recieve them. I have checked out all of the firewall config files and can not seem to find the problem.

    Any Ideas?

    Firewall Configuration

    Try to assign the ip adresses in your network to the firewall to let it permit the connection between computers. Of course you have to assign static ip adresses to computers.

    you could try configuring the MSN file transfer as a service in inetd or somthing similar.

    I know with AIM that if you have a private IP address you cannot send files to another person. It is supposed to be a Direct IP to IP transfer and they have not been able to work that out.

    what jarrod says is true configure the ip adresses manually like

    192.168.0.1
    192.168.0.2
    192.268.0.3

    and here's a tip

    subnet 255.255.255.255 ip adress: x.x.x.x - this subnet is only used on internet
    subnet 255.0.0.0 ip adress:192.x.x.x
    subnet 255.255.0.0 ip adress:192.168.x.x
    subnet 255.255.255.0 ip adress:192.168.0.x
