Firewall & Yahoo Messenger

I am trying to video-chat with a Mac user. It appears that MSN Messenger for
Mac does not support Video so we are trying to use Yahoo Messenger.

Everytime I try and initiate a video meeting I get an error message that my
firewall has prevented this happening. I get this message even when I turn
the firewall off.

Has anybody got any ideas to resolve this?
