Two more questions

1)How does Jive Messenger support file transfer? Is it c2c or c2s2c?

2)I was wondering how the server and clients transfer messages? It is c2c or c2s2c?

Thanks in advance

Hey huwnet,

1)How does Jive Messenger support file transfer? Is

it c2c or c2s2c?

XMPP defines various methods for file transfer. Some of them are c2s2c while others are c2c. You may want to read url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=13676&tstart=0this thread[/url] which refers to the JEP involved.

messages? It is c2c or c2s2c?

XMPP is a server centric protocol. It’'s not a P2P protocol so all messages are sent to the server and then the server forwards the messages to the other client.

With Exodus you can Specify different methods. Is there any way of overriding the users preference throught the server or disabling the server file transfer method?

Currently Messenger does not have specific support for file transfer so there is no way to disable it.

However, you may write a packet iterceptor and detect if the packet includes an element under the IBB or OOB namespace and reject the packet.

Just an idea,
