iChat blocks Jabber when parental controls are enabled
Mac OS Snow Leopard has added Jabber support in iChat, which enables Facebook chat, Google talk, etc. However, if you enable parental controls, leaving the « Limit iChat » checkbox unchecked, iChat disables Jabber all together. This has been reported several times on the Apple forums too.
But there is a workaround. As administrator, run
sudo dscl . -mcxset /users/<em>username</em> com.apple.iChatAgent Setting.parentalControls always -bool false<br />
