... but everywhere he is in ipchains

Right. I'm trying to set up my iSight, and it's not working, and this suggests that our home-brewed firewall is the crux of the problem:
To use iChat AV behind a firewall, make sure your network administrator has opened UDP port 5060.

When video conferencing, iChat AV uses four UDP ports in this range: 16384 to 16403.
So anyway, my network administrator is tired & stressed and says port forwarding is complicated. I have bashed my head against the ipchains man page to no avail. Anybody have any hints (or lines I can cut and paste into our firewall)?

TIA...
