    I managed to set up an iChat link between my Australian based daughter and myself (USA), and it worked very well. Once. However, since then she has been getting the "connecting" message without actually connecting. This goes on for about 10 minutes, then iChat gives up. Does anyone know what this is and how to overcome it? She has tried restarting iChat and her ADSL connect is fine. She manages to get traffic other than iChat at high speeds.
