[Kopete] - Webcam Issue

after updating to the newest Kopete and KDE I was trying out the webcam feature with a MSN contact, I could see my contacts webcam without problems and later she could see mine with a problem. However when we both tried to send and receive each others webcam only the first connection would be established and then the second would timeout. I can however receive her webcam while sending my to another msn contact without problems. Any thoughts on how to fix this or get around it would be helpful

Problem Fixed

After looking around again at…ebcam%20Support I found this, I guess i missed it the first time around

"I can receive or send but not both at the same time; port 6891 has been opened for TCP/UDP packets
I'm not sure, but it seems that I had to forward 6892 (udp and tcp)
as well to get both directions working. Hope that helps!
-yes that does, i had the same problem and same solution

I tried it out and it works great with Kopete 0.12.7
