  • Hi notmen,

    Firstly, I am glad to hear that you have found one solution.

    I couldn’t find another solution for this issue.

    Based on my understanding, the Intelligent IM Filter application helps protect your SFB deployment against the spread of the most common forms of viruses with minimal degradation to the user experience. Use Intelligent IM Filter to configure filters to block unsolicited or potentially harmful instant messages from unknown endpoints outside the corporate firewall. You configure filters by specifying the criteria to be used to determine what should be blocked, such as instant messages containing hyperlinks and files with specific extensions. URL Filtering tab controls the way in which hyperlinks are handled during an IM conversation, so after you removing HTTP from the URL filter pre-fix, and file transfer working fine.
