TO ALL THOSE HAVING TROUBLE WITH ICHAT AND AIM ON MACBOOKS

I've had a lot of trouble with AIM and iChat on my new Macbook, but I believe I've figured out the answers to all the problems I and others have encountered.
Firstly, for those who's AIM continually crashes and displays the message "The application AIM unexpectedly shut down," my answer to your problem is too many sent messages. Watch the bar in the bottom left of your chat window, when it reaches red, your application will probably shut down.
Secondly, for those experiencing difficulties with iChat, it's most likely a problem with communitcation between your wireless router and your computer. Try these steps:
1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
2. From the View, choose Sharing.
3. Click the Firewall tab.
4. Click New.
5. From the Port Name pop-up menu, choose Other.
If you have a Macbook, you'll probably have a TCP Port Number Bar and a UDP Port Number Bar. Try these steps:
1. In the TCP Port Number(s) Bar, type: 5190, 5298
2. In the UDP Port Number(s) Bar, type: 1024-5219, 5221, 5223-65535
3. In the Description Bar, type: iChat AV
4. Click OK
5. Click Start above the window with your firewall settings, and make sure the box next to iChat AV is checked
6. Relaunch iChat
Good Luck! I hope this solves some of the problems that people have been encountering.

My Linksys is the WAG54G, which might be different from your WRT54G. Currently, UPnP is disabled and the Router ports are a bit of a mystery, because they're forwarded to an IP address that's outside of the current DHCP Address Range! Once I got it working, I was reluctant to change it even though it looked anomalous.
The Firewall is on, with the iChat ports open that I listed in the previous post.
My two regular buddies are my sons, who both use Trillian Pro on a Windows machine. Works pretty well despite occasional freezes or garbled sound.
Hope you get sorted soon.

    I am having all kinds of trouble with itunes and updating my ipad. I open itunes up but it doesn't do anything except open to a blank screen. I try to access the itunes store but it won't go there. When I connect my ipad, and try to update it, it starts and then I get a message that says backup cannot be saved on this computer. I have tried everything suggested to no avail. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I have had problems with itunes. Sometimes I even get a message that I am not connected to the internet.
    I have uninstalled and re-installed. Any help?

    Hi, everyone.
    I'm Having trouble with OWA and Certs after the Rollup 7 for SP3 installation. any idea? update 2961522-
    after running get-OWAVirtualDirectory or test-OWAConnectivity i'm getting a message that says "OWA it's Orphan, No Metadata information can be found."
    I only have the OWA users impacted.- anywhere users, and ActiveSync are working well.-

    Hi Fabian,
    Is there any error code when user access their mailbox on OWA. Please confirm if there is no results returned in EMS when you run Get-OWAVirtualDirectory cmdlet. Also check whether there is any Event Logs related to OWA in Exchange.
    In IIS manager, make sure the OWA virtual directory is listed in the Default Web Site. In EMC, we can navigate to Server Configuration > Client Access, select server and turn to Outlook Web App tab. Then we can click Reset Virtual Directory in the right
    Actions pane to reset OWA virtual directory.
    Additionally, please restart IIS service by running iisreset /noforce from a Command Prompt window.

    I have an iPhone and just goy I pad but no computer I'm trying to synch them together but having trouble with iCloud and I can't seem to subscribe for iTunes match from either devise

    You first have to subscribe to iTunes Match through iTunes on your computer and have your music library in iTunes uploaded/matched before you can enable it on your iOS devices (see http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-match/).  Without a computer you won't be able to use iTunes Match.

    Hello there adell723,
    I suggest taking a look at this article we have named Troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues in OS X Lion and Mac OS X v10.6 found here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4628?viewlocale=en_US.
    Symptom: The network connection drops unexpectedly
    Your Mac may not not stay connected to your Wi-Fi network reliably.
    Your Mac may stop accessing the Internet during use.
    Solution
    Use these steps if your computer disconnects from its Wi-Fi network unexpectedly.
    Check your range to the Wi-Fi router and reduce the effect of interference.If your computer is too far from your Wi-Fi router or your environment has too much Wi-Fi interference, then your computer may not detect the Wi-Fi network properly. The easiest way to check for range limits with your Wi-Fi network is to move your computer or your Wi-Fi router closer together and make sure that there are no obstructions (such as walls, cabinets, and so forth) between the router and your computer.See Potential sources of wireless interference for more information about interference and solutions.
    Try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network. If your computer works fine when connected to a different Wi-Fi network, then the issue may be related to your network router or ISP. In that case, contact the manufacturer of your router or your ISP.
    If you have Mac OS X 10.8.4 Mountain Lion installed then I would recommend using Wireless Diagnostics tool which is on your computer already.
    Here is the article for it and how to use it to assist with wifi connectivity issues.

  • Having trouble with flash and linking to Sliding panels - PLEASE help

    Having trouble with Sliding panels and flash. Otherwise everything works fine but when I'm trying to implement the link
    <a href="#" onclick="sp1.showPanel('panel1'); return false;">Panel1</a>
    to a flash button I get confused. I have tried following
    on (press) {
    getURL("javascript:sp1.showPanel('panel1');");
    and it did not work. What would you suggest? I am desperate. Please help me! Any suggestions are highly appreciated!!!!

    Thanks for your answer!
    I have tried both sp1.ShowPanel('panel1'); and window.sp1.ShowPanel('panel1'); they both give blank window with [object]
    I have found a solution that works in other browsers, but not in IE. Well basicly it works, but after a few clicks IE freezes.
    on (press) {
    getURL("javascript:sp1.showPanel('panel1'); void(0);");
    Would you happen to have a solution other than that? I believe that the void(0); causes the IE to freeze.

    Make sure you have enough free space on your iPad. With iOS 7 it is recommended that you have 15-20% of the storage space on the device free.  For a 16 GB device that is 2.4-3.2 GB free. For a 32 GB device that is 4.8-6.4 GB free. For a 64 GB device that is 9.6-12.8 GB free.
    Also try a reset. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

  • Having trouble with Dreamweaver and fireworks willing to pay for support

    I'm new to the forum and i was hoping to get some help with
    dreamweaver and fireworks.
    I built a site on my own using dreamweaver 3 years ago but
    have forgotten almost everything. I am planning on building a new
    web site and have been messing with dreamweaver for over a week
    trying to figure it out, with little success. I bought a web
    building package years ago that included fireworks, dreamweaver,
    freehand and maybe more, but i lost my books on dreamweaver and
    fireworks somehow.
    Anyways, I was trying to learn dreamweaver 3 and fireworks
    and was having a lot of trouble with it. The dreamweaver bible
    assumes you know how to make a navigation bar using fireworks and
    that simply isnt the case for me. So I need help with that.
    Also, i have been having trouble with my template. This is
    how you save your basic page correct? For some reason it doesnt
    save the whole page for me. I figured out the editable regions
    part, I think, but since i didnt know how to make a navigation bar
    I made my own links out of text, and this part isnt saving with the
    template.
    I have a lot more questions but i think ive taken enough of
    your time. I am willing to pay someone to help me build this site,
    i cant afford a lot but i think my questions are pretty basic.
    Thanks

    There is a recent thread on the FW forum that may interest
    you - it's called
    "Firworks and HTML". The advice there applies in your case,
    too.
    One problem with your use of DW3 is this -
    the browser world has changed quite a bit in the almost 10
    years since DW3
    was released. Some (many?) of the behaviors in DW3 simply
    won't work any
    more because of these (significant) changes. Are you
    absolutely locked into
    using DW3?

  • Having trouble with pse7 and opening jpg files

    I have been using pse7 for quite some time and today I have started having trouble.  It is as if the program is "not responding" for a time.  So here is what is going on . . . I can open a file or group of files (jpg images) and then when I ctrl+o to open something new I can't see what is in the folders . . . and eventually it won't even let me open anything.  I will ctrl+o and the little blue circle will move, but then go back to the arrow without going to my folders.  I'm not sure if this is making any sense, but it is REALLY frustrating me!!!  I have restarted my computer several times today and it is not helping.  Last week I did update the driver for my printer and now I'm not able to print anything from PSE . . . I don't know if this is part of the problem.  I was getting the "not enough memory (RAM)" message last week as well.  I don't know if all of this is together, but it is driving me crazy!!!  I am in the process of downloading the pse9 trial and I'm hoping that this will help.
    I am working with windows7.
    thank you!!!

    You might have opened several images of large sizes.
    You can go to Edit menu > Preferences > Performance
    Move the slider to the right to increase the memory allocated to PSE
    Also, increase the Cache level.
    Restart PSE Editor
    The problem also can be, that you have several programs running on your system. You might want to close unwanted programs while working on several images in PSE. This also reduces the available memory for PSE to work on.
    Hope this solves your problem

  • I'm having trouble with "this" and method dependence

    For my Data Structures course, we have to create a simple Word Processor. The constructor contains two stacks, left and right. The way the class populates the strings is pretty straight forward. Any text to the left of the cursor gets pushed onto the left stack and any text to the right of the cursor gets pushed onto the right stack (in reverse order). For example, the phrase "hello" with the cursor between the l's, would push h, then e, then l onto the left stack. o then l is pushed onto the right stack. Follow me so far?
    Next, we have to implement several methods, such as moveLeft, moveRight, delete, insert, and moveToStart. There is also a toString() method which prints the two stacks as a String. The way I have my toString() method mapped out, is first to call the moveToStart() method. This method then pops all values from the left stack and pushes them onto the right stack (left: empty, right: h-e-l-l-o). So now, I simply pop each value from the right stack and store the values in a char[] array. The array is then returned as a String.
    This data structure converts the stacks to a String fine, the only problem is preserving the original stacks. So I tried to copy the value of "this," which should correlate to the EditableString es2 (declared in main), to a temp EditableString, tempEs. I then call moveToStart on tempEs, and pop values from tempEs.right. This is all in hopes to preserve the original es2. However, as you could see from the output at the bottom is that toString() modifies es2. If it didn't, "Hello, how are you" would have printed twice. Instead, an empty string is printed.
    There is obviously something wrong with my moveToStart(). Any suggestions? I apologize for not providing any comments in the code, it's just that I tried to save space. If any further explanation is necessary, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.
    public class EditableString {
    private Stack left;
    private Stack right;
    private JavaStack l = new JavaStack();
    private JavaStack r = new JavaStack();
    private char[] text;
    private static String cursor = new String("|");
    private EditableString tempEs;
    private Character characterObject;
    private char test1;
    public EditableString() {
    left = new JavaStack();
    right = new JavaStack();
    public EditableString(String left, String right) {
    new EditableString();
    for (int i=0; i < left.length(); i++) {
    characterObject = new Character(left.charAt(i));
    l.push(characterObject);
    for (int i = right.length(); i > 0; i--) {
    characterObject = new Character(right.charAt(i-1));
    r.push(characterObject);
    this.left = l;
    this.right = r;
    public void moveToStart() {
    while (! this.left.isEmpty())
    this.right.push(this.left.pop());
    public String toString() {
    tempEs = this;
    tempEs.moveToStart();
    text = new char[(tempEs.right).size()];
    for (int i=0; i < text.length; i++)
    text[i] = ((Character) (tempEs.right).pop()).charValue();
    return new String(text);
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    System.out.println("Starting Word processor!");
    System.out.println("----------");
    EditableString es2 = new EditableString("Hello, how", " are you");
    System.out.println("es2: " + es2.toString());
    System.out.println("es2: " + es2.toString());
    /* Output:
    Starting Word processor!
    es2: Hello, how are you
    es2:
    */

    Ok, I tried to create a copy(Es) method and modified the toString() method as follows, but I am having the same problem. Ok, in order to test my methods, I print the various sizes of several stacks. In the toString() method, right after tempEs is declared, this.left=10, this.right=8 and tempEs.left=tempEs.right=0. After the copy method is invoked and assigned to tempEs, this.left=tempEs.left=10 and this.right=tempEs.right=8. Follow me?, this is where I have trouble.
    I try to "pop" one value from tempEs.right to see if the action occurs on tempEs and not this. Well, it does. Right after the pop() method, this.left=tempEs.left=10 and this.right=tempEs.right=7. I need this.right to stay at 8. Why are these Editable Strings dependent?
    And for the record, I'm not trying to "pay" anyone to do my homework. I am simply trying to pass, and in turn, graduate. This is the second time I am taking this course (failed it with style the 1st time) and desperately need to pass. I have VERY little Java background and this class is unfortunately required for my engineering degree. So, I am simply looking for some help with my 30+hour homework assignments.
    public EditableString copy(EditableString ES) {
            EditableString xTemp = new EditableString();
            xTemp.left = ES.left;
            xTemp.right = ES.right;
            return xTemp;
        public String toString() {
            EditableString tempEs = new EditableString();
            tempEs = copy(this);
            tempEs.right.pop();
            tempEs.moveToStart();
            text = new char[(tempEs.right).size()];
            for (int i=0; i < text.length; i++)
                text[i] = ((Character) (tempEs.right).pop()).charValue();
            return new String(text);

  • Having trouble with tablelaoutpanel and flowlayoutpanel.

    I'm trying to make this forms controls expand with the form. After playing with anchoring and autosizing and what not, I'm not having very good luck with it. I think this is going to require some serious hand holding.

    I give up, it shouldn't be this hard.
    Thanks   Rbie
    Dick Hutchings
    Don't give up! You can take intrinsic control of the placement and sizing of every graphical control. Font sizes can also be managed. The trick is to design your UI on a given
    minimum template (or clientsize - say 1200 X 900 pixels or whatever), and then write code to manage what happens to each control given a clientsize change that is
    larger than your original template.
    I have provided a working example of this in this thread - https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/228eef7f-f056-4a7d-836b-1f8ad99f21c8/windows-form-application-using-vbnet-maximizing-and-minizing-the-windows-forms?forum=vbgeneral
    It is only a simple example - try it, and see how I have dealt with resizing and windowstate changes. Looking at your screenshot above, I can see how each of your groupboxes and all your controls could be managed by you writing code to manage them.
