    When I try to log on to AIM using iChat it says "The host refused the connection try again later." It's been doing that for several hours. Adium simply doesn't connect and when I go into preferences it says "Error: Socket is not connected" I have tried using different screen names but nothing works. I have restarted my computer, unplugged and plugged in the Ethernet cable, and even reinstalled Adium. I can log on to AIM using Meebo and on my iPhone. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
