Need Help getting AIM File Transfers to work behind firewall

So I have a DLink wireless router and I cannot send or recieve files through AIM. I went to DLink's site and they said to just change one setting in AIM but that didn't work. my guess is I need to setup port forwarding or something. Can anyone give me some specifics?
I'm running Mac OS X BTW, and I have the OS X firewall turned off.
