Video chat doesnt seem to ever want to work!!!! It's very frustrating! I can't even change my port to 443, that fixed the problem when I was on Leopard. Whenever I try to change it to 443 it changes bak to 5190 automatically. I log off and change it, and i noticed when I change it to 443 and click outside of that box, it'll automatically change to 5190. Can anyone help me?

    Just managed to change mine today after a week of not being able to.

    I changed to 443 and pressed return(enter) key.

    Odd.

    1) I had not thought of pressing enter.

    2) It does/did not work for me. All I now see is it change back to 5190 (rather than changing to Account Info pane and back)

    3) Further testing of deleting the port 5190 one character at a time and playing with the SSL option a couple of time got it to stay on a second account.
    In fact it was an @Mac.com name which waited for a while then reported the SSL would not work with the Apple Server.

    To restate:-
    I had SSL Off (It seemed to be the default).
    I had to Enable SSL to get the Change to accept when pressing enter. (I could turn Off the SSL again and the change stayed before Logging back in again.

    Hi Alex,

    Snow Leopard seem that iChat 5 needs you to Press Enter before leaving the Server Settings Screen.

    In fact I had to Reset the SSL Option (I had it Off) to get mine to work.

    I would hold Off Reinstalling.

    Ok,

    Are the ports for iChat set in the router ?
    Can you Logn but not Video Chat ?

    In System Preferences > Network does it show the DNS server for Your connection or your Neighbours ?

    Please Not it may be some time (Again) before I respond further.

    Hi,

    In grey where ?
    If they show that way on the Mac they are being seen automatically and there should be no problem.

    If they are on the modem or Router just copy them to the Mac.
