Another fix for 'user failed to respond' in iChat AV
Authored by: arasinen on Jun 02, '06 04:16:53PM

As someone who has benefited from this precise hint, I must disagree with the previous replyers.

Having iChat work with AirPort Express depends a lot on the type of network you are using. For those people, who have only one IP address assigned to the them by the ISP, this hint will most likely fail. (At least with multiple computers in the wireless network.)

However, my ISP allows up to five dynamical IP addresses. Using AirPort Express to take one of these and to build a NAT network around it leads to problems. It's better to allow any DHCP requests for an IP go up to the Internet Service Provider.

So there. This hint does not work for some people, but it will help others.
