iChat AV Video Chat Disconnect Issue

So, I was at a client yesterday that had an issue with their iChat video connection not connecting. The problem was that with iChat, you have to have certain ports open in your firewall, namely:
5060, 5190, 5220, 5222, 5223, 5297, 5298, 5353, 5678, 16384-16403

So I had to go into their router and let these ports through the firewall. If you have an advanced hardware firewall, or use a software firewall, you can specify a certain app (in this case iChat) to let connections through the firewall, but otherwise you have to stick to the flipping on ports.

5060, 5190, 5220, 5222, 5223, 5297, 5298, 5353, 5678, 16384-16403
