for the last week i have been unable to connect to AIM through either adium or ichat at work.
the accounts are sound, as i can connect at home.
any ideas on how to get around this?
Do you use Little Snitch by any chance? Maybe you accidentally blocked the connection...
sometimes.. for an odd reason, aim changes your prefs to be offline and wont let you connect. on the top right bar you might your "IM" status.. make sure its set to "available" and then quit and re-start iChat. that may solve your issue or its a firewall.
maybe it blocked the port it uses (5190)
i tried to message you and got an error say it will send to your gmail..
you might have a conflicting pref set to forward your messages to that location.
i'd bet it's Little Snitch or maybe OS X Firewall if you use custom rules. i've absently clicked through some of those warning dialogues many many times.
