How does File Transfer work?

I know that Jive Messenger doesn’'t support file transfers… So how did you guys achieve this?

We want to have VoIP on Spark, or at least through Jive Messenger, can a similar approach be used?

Thanks!

In Jabber, file transfer is p2p. It is as simple as that

Ravin,

Actually, sanderd is only partially correct. Spark will attempt to negotiate p2p file transfer. However, if that fails it will send files using IBB (in-band byte transfer). Basically, that breaks files into chunks and attaches them to messages sent through the XMPP server. That works fine with Jive Messenger and you’'ll never run into firewall issues.
