    So my PC is logged into AIM, and then i try to log in with iChat on my mac, and it will go from Available to Offline and back and forth really quickly, until i get the error that i've tried to log in too many times in a short amount of time. Now i tried to log in without the PC on AIM, and same thing happens. Anyone have this and know of a solution?

    Just tried Adium, and it works fine, only iChat that freeks out when trying to sign on.

    It was happening to me up until a few minutes ago, try changing the port to 443. It's under ichat>preferences>accounts>server settings

    Or you could try deleting the preferences to see if something has gone astray in there?
    Then when you re-start iChat it will ask you for your user name and password again.
