Can't transmit files between work & home

Can't transmit files between work & home

I have MSN Messenger 7.5 running on my home pc and on my work pc,
different accounts. I want to send files between my work/home pc's
using messenger, but when I try, it gets as far as 'Waiting for (user)
to accept', and just sits there, the other pc never gets a message
about an incoming file. It will either sit there, or eventually get
'The invitation could not be sent'. This happens not matter which pc I
try to send from. Any idea what's causing this?

FYI, I did verify MSN Messenger is an exception in my home firewall, I
also have a home router, but I've not read anything about ports needing
opened up. I have no access/control of the firewall at work.

Thanks, Dave
