iChat Video Chat with Vista???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there, I just wanted to know if it's possible to video chat using iChat AV 3 on my Mac and connecting to a PC running Vista using AIM 6.1. AIM 5.9 no longer works (or for that matter shows a video chat option on the PC). I have my firewall setup to allow TCP Ports 5190 and 5298 and UPD Ports 5060, 5190, 5297, 5298 and 5678 to go through. Right now I'm bouncing off a wireless router at my home - do I need to allow AIM through at the router as well, or is there something on the Vista end I need to do ... or both? Right now when we attempt to video chat the conference never initiates because "User Name Did Not Respond" and then asks if I want to send an error report. Does anyone have an idea what I can do here? Thanks a bunch...

Also, turn off all firewalls on your computers and try. If it still doesn't work, make sure you fully patch your computers, then plug them directly into the internet and try
