Well, it seems to work great, but I have yet to test it by actually talking to someone. Anyone out there at this time of night? If you're there, I'll be on to test...

Yes. I added you, but you're greyed out too. RtC is available though. We're both on Airport. Both on routers, but I'm DMZed. I've been able to make it work no probs so far.

hmm....when i try to start a chat via New Chat, I get this:

Your privacy preferences are set so they prevent you from communicating with this person.

Yet, my privacy settings are set to allow all...is there some port I need to open to allow this? I never had problems with iChat before...I'm not even behind a firewall or a router or anything!

Yo Waka,

When I firs launched iChat AV it asked me to turn off personal firewall in sys prefs.

I had you as a go for audio a minute ago but lost you.

make sure you have selected external mic selected in iChat prefs under video.

Hi guys,

If you haven't already done so, you need to open another port on your firewall.

Name it "iChat AV" (or whatever)

Port number: 5298

Enjoy!

:cool:
