SMC Barricade and iChat

OK, so until I figure out what sort of new and improved wireless router I’m going to use in my office, I figured I might as well continue using this old SMC Barricade I have. Problem was it wasn’t allowing iChat video conferencing. After some fiddling, I finally arrived at the following settings in the “Special Application” [sic] screen that allowed the magic to happen. Might be overkill, but it works, so don’t fix it:

Barricade Settings for iChat

You can see the final port number got truncated on lines 2 and 4. For reference (and copy and paste), the ports are:

Trigger Port: 5060

Lines 1 and 3: 5060, 5190, 5220, 5222, 5223, 5298

Lines 2 and 4: 5060, 5190, 5297, 5298, 5353, 5678, 16384-16403


Edit 01-Oct-2007:


OK, so iChat AV worked for a while, but then broke.  I think I had a red herring in the above configuration.  Stay tuned…
