iChat - Openfire - Yahoo IM?

Howdy,

I’ve installed the Openfire server on my Mac in the hopes of using iChat for my Yahoo IM, but it’s not working, most likely due to operator error…Can anyone help?

iChat (jabber) -> Openfire (Gateway messenger) -> Yahoo

Server is running on 127.0.0.1- I installed the gateway plugin and added a Yahoo gateway registration (my yahoo login) and both were successful. When i log into iChat and added my local jabber account, all my IM yahoo contacts appeared. However, communication is not working. Am I missing something?

Is your Mac OSX firewall enabled ? Are you behind a NAT router ? Have you opened the necessary ports to make Openfire and the gateway plugin work ?
