    Default Webcam in Kopete doesn't connect


    Hi guys,
    I run opensuse 11.0 and use Kopete, connected to my MSN account, for
    instant messaging. In Kopete, in the Configure menu under Devices, my
    webcam appears to work fine (i see myself in the little window). But in
    the actual chat window, when I click on 'send webcam' or 'receive
    webcam' nothing happens at all. The button clicks, but there is no
    loading screen or anything on my end or the person I'm chatting with.
    But when the person on the other end invites me, i get a little dialog
    that asks me to accept or reject them seeing my webcam. I click accept,
    and nothing happens on my end, but on their end it says
    'connecting....', then 'loading.....' then it disappears and nothing
    happens. They can't see me. What can I do to share my webcam? Thanks!!!
    Taylor

    Maybe this:
    'KDE Wiki : Kopete Firewall'
    (http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page=Kopete+Firewall)

    Hi, thank you for the reply but that website doesn't make any sense to
    me. I don't know how to redirect ports, or really what a port is. How
    would I do that?
