    I have used ichat and have video conference with different people around the world, however sometime it says I have refuse to respond even though I have accepted the invitation or the other way around.

    Is it a bandwith or a firewall port problem ? I have looked in the forums on opening ports but that doesn't seem to work. So as of this momement it's only 50/50 that I can use the video conference with my isight. Is it my computer or is it something else. I travel a bit so I'm thinking it's maybe the broadband I'm using.

    Thanks for any insight on this.

    Have your friend close ichat and you do the same. Then you should both relaunch, and start the video chat. (do this without waiting like 20 rush...just do it after opening ichat). This usually works for me.

    I've seen this on other threads. They say its the firewalls of their routers.
