[JDEV] .. jabberim and file-transfer ..

The ability to change the file transfer method is
planned for a future release of Jabber Instant
Messenger.  Right now, with version 1.6, there is
no way to configure which file-server is used
(other than to have Jabber.com create a custom
version for you).  If you're uncomfortable or
unable to use files.jabber.com for file transfers,
you should just tell your users not to use that 

Also, note that the client is no longer called
JabberIM.  It is now Jabber Instant Messenger.
You shouldn't find any references to "JabberIM"
anywhere in the software or online help.

Subject: [JDEV] .. jabberim and file-transfer ..

Again me, 
and again I am wondering about some things about the new release of
I tried the file-transfer and recognized that JabberIM is exchanging the
files between two jabber-clients via the server http://files.jabber.com/
Of course this is working, but I wondered about the security if I want to
use this feature from within a company and transfer important documents,
because it is possible for everyone, if he/she knows the correct link to
download the file if the transfer is still going on or if the receiver is
pending with accepting the transfer.
I found no possibility to modify the file-server for this. 
Has anyone a idea about this or how I can change this behaviour ??
