File transfer utility.   Free

Teleporter X is a free file-transfer utility. It is (sort of) a replacement to AIM's file transfer feature. It was made because the AIM file transfer feature in Fire (my favorite AIM client) didn't work. It works by registering your username and IP address on a server.

To send a file to somebody, you can either enter the IP or the username in the "send to" field. One thing that we haven't figured out is getting around firewalls. So, you will have to open port 3000 on your firewall to receive files.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated and will be incorporated

iChat supports file transfer, AIM supports file transfer. They're both free. What's the problem.

You can be logged on twice on AIM's servers. So for example you could use Fire if you wish, and then just launch ichat when you need to transfer a file, and you wouldn't have to log off of Fire!

The AIM client (not ichat) also supports AIM's proxy servers, so that'd solve your firewall problem.

The problem has already been solved, it's in AIM, you just refuse to use it, why? Wasted energy if you ask me.

First, I don't like AIM because it's slow, clunky, the interface is ugly, and it's slow.

I don't like iChat because it's another AIM client, has a metal interface, uses more RAM, and it's slow.

We created Teleporter as an intention of being a small, compact application to transfer files without having to open iChat or AIM.

I don't know about you, but that was OpenDoor Software's opinion. If you don't like it, don't use it. Nothing lost on your part.

I like it, but its a pain to have to open port 3000 , becasue you have to be on your network , and it would be better if it could use AIM file transfer as well. making this into a full blown direct IM client would be great.

Please note that Teleporter X is not compatable with AIM file transfer.
