FaceTime is great... but only seems to work in one direction. I have an iMac, MacBookPro and an iPhone.


Here what works and what doesn't. Anybody any idea why?


MBP     =>     iMac     | works

iMac     =>     MBP     | works

MBP     =>     iPhone  | works

iMac     =>     iPhone  | works

iPhone  =>     MBP     | does not work

iPhone  =>     iMac     | does not work


In other words, when I want to call the the MBP or the iMac with the iPhone, it get an FaceTime Failed immediately...


Very strange... since all other ways work. Any help is appreciated.


PS: Everything is with the latest iOS and latest OS X!

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1
