Digichat with mac

Hey there.

Basically i dont know if any of you chat at any sites that use digichat? Well my problem is, ive just bought this new mac powerbook G4 12 inch yada yada. Ive never used a mac before, but already got to grips with it.

One problem though. i cant access digichat for some reason, it loads the applet. but gets stuck at "connect" and does nothing. Now, there cant be something wrong with the java if it actually loads the applet, so im basing it on the inbuilt firewall, this machine uses.

Is there anyway to get around this? switching off the firewall?

Anyone else had the same problem?

Cheers
Uslkid.

Did you install the Java update through Software Update in the Systems Preferences?

i dont think the firewall is on by default. go to system preferences (in the apple menu) and select sharing, i believe the firewall settings are under the second tab. turn it off if its on and see if that helps.
