Hey everyone, just wanted to report what may be a problem occurring with Skype (both the recent 3.5 version and the most recent 3.6). I tried connecting with my firewall off (yes, I said OFF) but I kept on getting a connectivity error. Restart skype, wait two minutes, if problem persists contact system administrator error. Anyway, for the heck of it I turned my firewall ON (yes ON) and tried Skype again: AND IT WORKS.
Anyway, to see if I could reproduce this I closed the firewall and tried Skype again but it still worked. It had to be something with the firewall and Skype as the only other things I installed were Roboform, Paragon Hard Disk Manager, YPops, Hot Keyz, and maybe one or two other programs. Except nothing changed with those installations. The only thing that did change was firewall being on and off.
I’m using the latest .276 version of CFP with defense+ enabled on a Win XP SP2 system with Nod32 AV and BoClean. I don’t see how any of this is causing the problem since I don’t shut those down usually. Might be something to look into.
