Summary: Jabber/GTalk File Transfer Impossible

Initial Comment:
I'm using Gaim 2.0.0beta3.1, and a GTalk account works fine using the Jabber 
protocol, but file transfers are not possible.

Send requests are not recieved, and the Windows client of Google's AIM can't 
send files to me either, claiming my client is not file transfer capable. Just 
as I was chatting through GMail embed IM.

File transfer between the official Google Talk client and another Jabber
client do not work as the official client uses it's own file transfer
As far as I remember, Google said they would open this protocol or write a
JEP about it or something... but they have not done this yet. Correct me if
i'm wrong.

But now, if we have two Google Jabber accounts using "real" Jabber clients
(GAIM/Adium) and the file transfer does not work... then I can only make
Maybe the clients are firewalled and because of this they try to send the
file via the Jabber server, but the google talk server does not support
this feature.

In fact I had the same problem using two iChat clients with Google Talk

I'm using 2.0.0beta6 and it's the same.

Although my other part is using Adium to connect to GTalk (which I believe
is using libgaim?)
