Well, it seems that I've been having alot of problems with my configurations lately. Today I ran into the problem that my mom was having at work. It seems that her employer has blcked certian ports from accessing the internet and since she is new to Macs she wanted to run AIM so she could send me messages/screenshots if she was having a problem. Well, it seems that the default port on AIM is one of the ones that they have blocked. Can you guys please let me know what ports could possibly be used to connect. Thanks a million.
