    Just got the new MBP and am trying to do a video chat but keep getting a message that there was no response from the other person. Only problem is, the other computer is across the room and I see the person clicking the accept the invitation button. Does not work online or via Bonjour. Getting an error message. Why would this be and how do I fix it?

    Is the other person also using a Mac with Leopard?

    Well besides the obvious "why are you trying to video chat with someone in the same room", the only question I can ask is whether he/she/you has/have a firewall of some kind up? Does it work when you two are not on the same network (is it a local network only issue)?

    hehe, just testing it out before heading out on the road and it will be used on the local network with coworkers in another part of the building. I will test the online part momentarily.

    OK, if the Apple test clients are telling me the truth then I can video chat online.
