It took me a couple of days but I made msn-pecan work with direct connection. This means fast file transfers are now possible.
The code was almost working the last time I touched it, perhaps 4 years ago? I just had to remove some #if 0’s and fix bugs.
Now I can receive files directly from a listening host (ip accessible), but somehow I broke sending files.
What I’m planning to achieve:
- Sending/Receiving from a listening host
- Sending/Receiving as a listening host
- Sending/Receiving with UPnP
Install as usual:
git clone git://people.freedesktop.org/~felipec/purple-msn-pecan
sudo make install
Hopefully some people would test this out.
Tigrux: Once I get this somewhat stable I’ll release a new version, then I’ll announce your package if you are still interested.
