    Hi
    today a my friend send some files to me
    i have outpost 2.7 for now
    and in the log in see that thess files are sent with an outbound connection!

    this is strange for me , it should be a inbound connection!
    she (my friend) send files to me , not me to her

    why?

    thanks

    Please try to provide more information with regards to your system setup. Yes it should be INBOUND if someone is sending something to you but if Miranda is a p2p program it's a shared INBOUND / OUTBOUND connection to a server and it may be that OUtpost is Blocking the initiated OUTBOUND connection done by Miranda. Miranda needs to connect to it's server first when you log into it.

    I think you are connecting to a server in order to receive the file from your friend, not directly to him/her. This is the reason for outbound connection.
