Comment (by fmarkos):

 >Actually, Bonjour presences are in the form of username at machinename, so
 it seems like it should be possible to make it work, I need to do some
 more digging. Basically each user runs a separate local server on a
 different port, so either the wrong port is getting advertised, or we're
 connecting to the wrong port when sending a message to the user.

 I tried changing the server name in pidgin so it was user1 at asus1
 user2 at asus2 but it still didn't work right.

   >When one of the Mac users (using iChat) tries to initiate a chat with
 one of the Pidgin users, does that work consistently?

 No, same behavior like from pidgin to pidgin.

   >I'm not sure what you mean here. Bonjour only works on your local
 network, your router isn't a factor and you don't need to forward any
 ports (where would you forward them to?).
 Forget about it, for a moment I thought I could forward those ports from a
 PC on LAN -1 to a pc on LAN-2 and make bonjour connection across LANs
