Usually every 15-30 minutes or so, I will be disconnected from both of my Jabber accounts. I've searched the Mac discussion forums up and down for a solution to my problem. I've found repeated postings of various router configurations with port forwarding, etc. The problem is that I also use iChat at work and doubt IT will let me go tinker with their servers, opening various ports for iChat. And to be blunt, at home I don't want to. With all the success I have with other Apple applications I've come to expect a higher degree of reliability from my applications and I don't feel like I should have to do so. Only Google Talk and Jabber disconnects, AIM is always fine. Here's a sample of the error log: 8/6/08 10:54:24 PM iChatAgent WARNING: SocketStream: CFStream error 12/8 occurred on input stream 8/6/08 10:54:24 PM iChatAgent WARNING: XMLStream: CFStream error 12/8 occurred on input 8/6/08 10:54:24 PM iChatAgent WARNING: JConnection: Error: Could not connect to server: talk.google.com, type=1, code=8 (I've also received codes 54, & 57) Any solution other than router reconfiguration?
