I want to disable file transferring option in Skype in a computer that is running Ubuntu 11.10. The files can be leaked and I was ordered to maintain security and disable file transfer through Skype.

If it is possible please provide me a solution. How can I do this like this can be done in Windows by editing the Registry?

In Ubuntu how can I the disable file transferring option in Skype?

You could do if file transfer uses a different port than the voice / image / control communications. Just monitorize your connections and start a new transfer, to verify how the application behaves. –  jap1968 Jan 19 '13 at 13:39
