    I've gone into settings and turned screen sharing on. I've turned the firewall off. I've put file share on. I've tried everything. I tried to start a screen share with my friend and it started to go but then said that an unknown error occurred. is there anything else I need to change to it?

    -thanks

    There's a lot of reasons why it still might not be working -- often times it's things that are out of your control (like router settings, or things on your friend's end).

    If iChat isn't able to establish a connection, you could try an alternative. LogMeIn is free and it works great, bypassing the high-quality requirements iChat needs.
