Ok, I hope that someone from AOL reads this and has enough intelligence to understand what I'm saying. How can AOL, a company that reads people's conversations (if you didn't know they did that, here's a huge awakening) not know how to send files through a firewall. Explain that. Not to mention that they have HOW MANY millions of dollars, yet they can't buy enough servers to allow all of the users trying to access their sites the ability too. Instead I sat here for almost an hour with www.aim.com in the backround failing to EVER load. I have used aim for over 3 years now, and they have yet to enable a way to send files to other aol users through a firewall. Why is this? I've snooped around online and found that AOL uses ports 5190-5193 (unless the website lied) and yet when I open up the ports on my router and dedicate it just to my computer, I am still unable to send files. For a company that has that kind of money, and that many nerds working for it, you would think that they would be able to figure this out! Has anyone successfully transferred a file while being firewalled with another computer that was firewalled? If so, how did you do it? Thanks!
