Just because your firewall is letting traffic in that does not mean it will appear in your netstat.
netstat -a will show you a list of ports that are in use - i.e. there is some process listening to (or writing to) that port. That is independent of whether the firewall permits the traffic (e.g. the firewall could well allow traffic in on 5190, but unless there's a process listening to 5190 you won't see it in the netstat).
Secondly, IIRC iChat file transfers are client-to-client therefore it might not be your server, or your server's firewall or your server's network that's the issue - the client will need to have a firewall configured to allow incoming traffic from other iChat clients.
Does that help shed some light on things? (it isn't clear whether your post is referring to the server or the client side of things).Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 6, 2010 8:09 PM (in response to Camelot)Thanks for the netstat explanation.
As for the clients, even with disabled firewalls it doesn't work.
When I scan the server with either linux nmap, mac os portscan or ping.eu port scan service, ports 5190 and 7777 are reported as closed.

I am referring to the server.
Thanks for the answer, but unfortunately I still have no idea how to solve the problem.Custom Desktop, vaio laptop, Windows 7, Windows@home, mac@work

I think you will get more success if you post your question here:

Thanks to you reply, I noticed I'm in the wrong board. Shame on me for making a server 10.6 question on a server 10.5 board. Seems that working late night is not very good for my eyes after all.
