Send a file through a Bonjour Instant Message

1.
Open iChat, which will activate Bonjour.

2.
If the Bonjour window (shown on the left) doesn't appear, press Command 2, or go to the Window menu and choose “Bonjour.” Other users on your network who also have iChat installed will appear in the Bonjour window.

3.
In the Bonjour window, select the user to whom you want to send a file, then click the Text Chat button (the “A” icon), shown on the left. An Instant Message (IM) window opens (below-left).

Send a message to a buddy.The buddy receives a notification.

4.
Type a message in the text box, then press Return to send it. The recipient receives an Instant Message notice (shown below-center).

5.
When you're ready to send a file, drag the file (or a folder of files) to the text box at the bottom of the Bonjour window.

6.
The file name and icon appears in a message bubble. When the recipient clicks the file name in the message, it automatically downloads to her Desktop.

This also works with iChat.
