    So you must have a latest model mac?

    If you want we can start an iChat session and test whether or not this webcam will work?

    webcam works fine mate, I'm running the latest mac book with inbuilt isight...problem is that when using aMsn it says im either behind a firewall or a router..but that makes no sense because my firewall is off anyway and what laptop normally isn't behind a router!!??
    any help greatly appreciated

    you need to setup port forwarding via your router.

    here is the link for instructions courtesy of aMSN:

    As for the forwarding of your ports through the router, every router has a specific process. your router can most likely be found at www.portforward.com
