Are you attempting transfer to a windows user on AIM?

Regardless, here is the documentation on it, straight from Apple:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93208
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107476

Pay special attention to that second link, in fact - follow it first.

is it that your friend's aim that doesn't work?
has it ever worked, maybe another computer from the same router?
have you tried to plug the computer directly into the modem?

what system are you and your friend using?
