First, restart iChat and try again.
Next, do a permissions repair and the try again.
Third, it could simply be that there isn't enough bandwidth on either your side or the other person's.

Yeah, maybe. Are you using a wireless router? You'll have to enable port forwarding and you'll also want to "reserve" the specific port you use for your MacBook. This turned out to be the only way that I could iChat with my MacBook Pro. I too got that same crazy error message.

Yep. Im not on a wireles connection but the person who I am trying to connect with is. And i get the same thing. But at apnera bread which uses wifi and it worked fine. But we were only a table away from each other testing it out. What do I need to do to get it to work?
