Hi all,

I am trying to get the iChat on my iBook to talk to a friends AOL-IM on his PC, through an audio connection. We can connect through text, but it won't allow us to use the audio, or presumably the video function (although I don't have a webcam, so I don't really know). My free .mac account has expired also. Do I have to purchase an account in order to get this feature? i.e. does it only allow text? Please help!

Does your friend have Windows XP ?

The video/audio doesn't work with anything less.

Also make sure he is not running a firewall or router.

AIM says all that is needed is 28.8 modem but I couldn't connect to my friend that has 2 x 56K bonded. I can connect to anyone using high speed that I have tried so far.
