AIM or ichat users?

Recommended Posts

Hi Anyone out there have an AIM / AOL account on there Mac and PC that i could test video session with?

 

Trying to video chat with family but i cant connect the session correctly. Getting timeout errors. I am pretty sure i have my firewall opened up on my end, but not sure about my fathers end.

 

Thats why i was hoping to test with someone who have ichat video working already, so i can test out my side.

Sorry, I never got back on last night.

 

I think it's the same protocols, but I never use AIM directly so I don't know for sure.

 

I might be on for a bit around 4:30 Central today but I'm not sure about that either.

Hey, Joe -

 

I'm headed for a happy hour BD celebration.

 

I stayed connected with my Away message. I think you should still be able to connect since I'm online, but, I'm not sure. If it doesn't work, I'll be home by 9 Central or so, or we can try again tomorrow

 

Good luck.

Well we test the .Mac ichat and that works, but using AIM (aol) to a pc still crashes ichat witha communications error.

 

Anyone here hac a PC with AOL that i can video test with?
