iChat In Pictures >> You are in Folder 6_iChat Ports >> Page: Select the TAB

3[6] 3 iChat Ports Firewall - Select TAB 02-10-2006

Big clue time.

As you will see, the screen will change to the one that controls the Firewall.

The list in the box looks the same but from the Edit button you can review which ports those services have open. From the picture you can see the list is longer by the presence of a Scroll button.

Depending what you may have set up for iChat in the past you will use the Edit or New Button next. By default only an entry for iChat Rendezvous or iChat Bonjour will be in the list (Currently out of sight) and which will depend on your OS version as at Tiger Rendezvous changed it's name to Bonjour.

Picture with big arrow on it. Need I say more ?

Well, I have in the main text.


Confirmed to work with Win/IE 5.5 and later (should work in 5.0, but not confirmed), Firefox 2, Safari 3, Opera 9, iCab 3.02 and later, Mac/IE 5, Netscape 6 and later

Old browsers (IE version 4 or earlier, Netscape 4 or earlier) should only see a text-based page which, while not the prettiest option, is still entirely usable.
