"you were unable to send the file to..."


I’'m trying to set up a OpenFire with Spark for office IMs; I have openfire 3.3.2 running on linux (redhat) and spark version 2.5.4 running on win2k.

If I try and send files to or from spark, it fails immediately saying "you were unable to send the file to ", with a “retry” link.

The logs show:

19-Jul-2007 17:26:49 org.jivesoftware.spark.util.log.Log error

SEVERE: Error occured during file transfer.

at org.jivesoftware.smackx.filetransfer.OutgoingFileTransfer$2.run(OutgoingFileTra nsfer.java:214)

at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Nothing is seen server side (or the other client).

If I try and transfer files over the same server using pandion it works fine (though sometimes I get the “have to try twice” problem that is reported elsewhere on the boards).

Any ideas?
