    Hi All,
    I'm trying to connect an iChat audio chat with my friend, both using .Mac accounts, but it won't do it.

    When we press the button, it says : (name) did not respond...

    Thats even when we accept it.

    Any ideas?

    First query: Have you both checked your FireWall settings?

    Click on Apple menu - > scroll down to System Preferences -> click on: Sharing -> click on the Firewall tab.

    Look down the list. Is there a port open (ticked) for iChat?

    ?

    Cheers,

    CW

    AddIt: And is Firewall "on" or "off"? Does it say Stop or Start?

    Do you have a router or hardware firewall?
