Possible solution for iChat connection problems over VPN
Authored by: Ralph Johns on Jun 19, '12 11:41:13AM
Hi,

iChat Needs to have only one Internet Connection so that Audio and Video Chats work. When you "Share" a Neighbour's WIFI as well as using Ethernet yourself you get two connections to the Internet.
In Leopard there is an issue with a Computer doing Internet Sharing and iChat and iChat can "See" the second computer's Internet connection

For a long time on the Apple Discussion Boards we have been suggesting that IPv6 be turned Off (where it is active at the ISP end) so that you only have one connection. In Lion IPv6 can not be fully turned Off and you have to use the Local Link option
