Info, Pic, HP, Profile


When you request someone's Personal Profile, Picture or Home Page, you're requesting an information transfer, very much like a file transfer. Sometimes the transfer runs into problems and you'll see one of these messages in the status bar:

Error during [personal profile] transfer.
Transfer of [picture file] declined by remote host [host name].
Timeout during transfer.

Basically, all of these are timeout problems. That is, the delay in the connection between your computer and the other person's is so long that the software stops the transfer. In the case of Transfer Ö declined, making the request again often is successful. In some situations, the transfer doesn't take place and no message is displayed. In general, this will be when View Picture is selected and the file on the other person's system is not available (it has been deleted or it is on a drive which is not available).
