Enable ICQ File Transfer Through NAT

When you connect to the Internet through a NAT connection you’ll discover that you will no longer be able to transfer files to and from your ICQ program.

Remember that 2 problems still exist with this sort of connection:

  • Although you will be able to receive files, you will not be able to transfer files to other users that are behind firewalls.

Follow the screenshots to configure your ICQ client:

  1. Go to the Preferences of your ICQ client:
