File transfers via Sametime

Is anyone able to transfer files via Sametime? I can't send or receive via Adium. I or the other end just gets the message that the transfer has been cancelled.

Thanks.

I'd recommend a service like CloudApp or Dropbox for file sharing.

Thanks. No so simple. No cloud sharing is allowed here. Does file sharing via Sametime in Adium simply not work and that's that?

Oh, shucks. :/

I wouldn't be surprised if Sametime file transfer support broke somewhere along the way. I believe there have been new versions (?) but there hasn't been serious maintenance libpurple-side in a long time and I've run across a couple of reports: https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/13016, https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/12813, https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/10447
