    My buddy just got a new iMac.
    He is trying to login to iChat with his AIM account, but he get's an error message reading something along the lines of:

    "Could not connect. There is already a connection from this computer's IP address."

    Can he get on the net? (go to google?)

    EDIT: Hmm, I misread your post. I don't think I've ever seen this. Its an error message in a separate dialogue box?

    you said that it's new? do you mean factory-new or refreshed/refurbished? The only possible way that I could see this error occuring is if there is some left over file. But I find that extremely unlikely. I'd call apple on this one. They'd know a lot more.

    is someone else on the same network logged into AIM at the same time? That would do that.
