Importing PHPBB attachments

edited April 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I've successfully imported the body of my PHPBB forums using Porter 1.3.1, but am not having any luck importing all of the attachments (mostly images) over into Vanilla Forums? I also installed the FileUpload plugin as I read in a discussion here that must be installed.

Is this possible? Can you point me in the right direction?

    Attachments aren't currently part of the phpBB importer; I only wrote it for vBulletin because I happened to know how those worked.

    Could i export from PHPBB to vBulletin, then on to Vanilla? Would that retain the attachments?

    EDIT: Hmm..I guess I would need to have vBulletin installed, which I don't have. :(
