    I've got iChat all working thru my MBP, however we just received our 27" iMac last Thursday and I tried connecting my MBP to her on the iMac without any luck.

    I set up her iChat account using her Gmail account like mine but I'm doing something wrong.

    Can someone help me get her iChat all set up?

    Did you set her up with a Jabber account or an AIM account using her Gmail email address in iChat? If it's an AIM account, it should be able to video chat with other AIM/MobileMe accounts and vice versa. I do not think Jabber/AIM play nicely though I haven't tested it.

    I'm pretty sure that I used Jabber using her Gmail account, which is what I have on my MBP. I tried copying all of the settings from my fully working iChat account to her's without any luck.

    We both have Mobile Me accounts if that works better?
