    so for some reason I am unable to connect to AIM on my MAC-i can do so on my dell laptop so something is blocking it-i got rid of the firewall that I had been using but they were working fine together before-can anyone give me some advice?

    Are the two computers connected to the internet in the same way? How is the Mac connected to the internet now?

    Is the Mac on a LAN connected to a router or to a computer using internet sharing? Is it the same router providing WiFi for the laptop or different?

    mac is directly connected to the router-it is the same router that the laptop connects to'

    EDIT-i cant even seem to find a working download for AIM anywhere-

    if this helps here is the message i get from adium
    "could not connect to authentication server"

    Socket is not connected
