    i use ichat and its great. i love it. but lately i haven't been able to direct connect right. to some people i could send pictures fine, but some i can't. like, i'd be talking to my friend and he'd send me a picture, but my picture won't go through. i tried to send to another friend and it worked. its very sporadic. yesterday i was able to send a picture to the same friend i couldn't today. very odd. the worst thing is, i can't even figure out what the error is, when unable to send a picture, it says: undefined error has occurred, unable to connect to buddy.

    help?

    Are all of your buddies using iChat? I've noticed problems with direct connect when chatting with an Adium using buddy.

    only 1 buddy i know uses ichat, and she's not the one i'm having problems with. I don't know any with adium. a min ago, i sent a buddy a picture, but couldn't send a picture to the other buddy. i'm guessing it only occurs with this particular buddy. it has happened a lot recently. the weird thing is, he still could send me pics, and i sent him one yesterday... its like random.

    I've also found that besides client compatibility, if either of you is on a college campus or at an office that has to go through one or more LAN routers, sthat can cause problems with directly connecting.
