Re: Tighten up Skype?

said by Sentinel:

Can anyone tell me what ports Skype needs to function so I can limit it to those?

IIRC Skype's a REALLY sneaky b*stard when it comes to protocol(s) and port(s) it uses... short of using
a packet sniffer to track on what it's opening up outbound, you're SOL, and then again I'm almost willing
to bet the next skype session it'll use something completely different.

So far, "permitting what you need, denying the rest," can't go wrong with this config.
