I've searched the boards and have found nothing useful SO... iChat video seems to NEVER work. I have been successful when both users were on the same network. Both users have apple computers, macbook and macbook pro, that were bought within the last 3 months. We both have the same Linksys WRT54G router at our homes and have both forwarded ports apple recommends, all 20 or something stupid, and have disabled the firewalls on the routers AND in leopard, still with no luck. Sites used: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1629?viewlocale=en_US and http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1507 We have downloaded skype and forwarded the one port it uses and the video chat works great. The simple solution would to just use skype but we would like to use iChat as we both have other contacts on our iChat accounts that do not have skype. Is there some kind of workaround? Are we missing something? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
