    Hello all,

    I got my iPad today and promptly installed AIM logging in with the same username as my laptop so I can occasionally leave my room and continue a conversation on my iPad in the living room.

    However, it seems like AIM on my iPad is the only client that gets my messages. Usually logging in at two+ locations will have any IMs received at both locations, but I only get them on my iPad. When I look at my laptop, I can see the person is typing but am not getting anything. I checked the settings on AIM and Adium but nothing stands out.

    Odd thing is my roommate set up the same approach with AIM and Adium on his iPad and laptop and he has no problems.

    Could anyone help?

    MAJOR EDIT: I solved my problem. Went to aim.com/im_routing and found out

    When signed into multiple locations:
    Your messages will generally be delivered to all locations not set as Away (or locations that have gone Idle).
    If all locations are set Away, then messages will be delivered to all locations.

    Sorry for wasting ten seconds of your lives. Much appreciated :D
