Hi,

I have been trying to make Skype 2.0.0.97 to work with KWF v6.2 in my office, but so far, unsuccessful! Sad

I have tried number of ways as below,

1. Open ALL out-going as "any";
2. Open up the port tcp/udp 4131 for incoming;
3. Enable proxy authentication.

Nothing works! Skype still cannot sign-in!!

Kerio support said is not the KWF issued but the Skype as my rule is correct.

Does anyone has any luck on this? If you do, would you please share it?

Thanks and best regards.
Joseph

Hi, I got it working without any special rules. Also video works.
This is how to do it:

1. Goto Tools/Options
2. Goto Connection
3. Switch on "Use port 80/443 as alternative..."
4. On same page Switch to HTTPS Proxy and fill in host and port 443
5. On same page fill in a valid username and password.
6. Press save
7. Quit and restart Skype

Now everything should work fine.

Hi Bronco,

Thanks for the info.

I can;t have the port 80/443 as alternative as my KWF has blocked all in-coming on this. Therefore, I have to use the port 4131 instead. I enable both tcp/udp.

I tried using the proxy authentication with login user id & password, cannot.

I tried the https, but not so sure what should I put into the hostname? SO, I placed my machine name...not result!! Confused

Infornt of the KWF, there is a Dlink DI-704P+. I created a Virtual Host and open up the firewall by redirecting the incoming port 4131 into the KWF firewall host. Still not working..

Any idea?
Thanks.

Hi Joseph,

How do you connect to the internet? Is there a ADSL-modem in front of the DLINK like this:
Internet<-->ADSL Modem<-->DLINK<-->KWF<-->Local PC's.
If so than the config is a bit strange.

My configuration looks like this:
Internet<-->ADSL Modem<-->KWF<-->Hub/Switch<-->Local Pc's

In the KWF machines there are two Nic's one connected to the ADSL Modem and the other to a hub/switch that connects the local pc's and a NetGear Wireless hub. I switch in the software of the ADSL modem all portforwarding to the KWF machine. So KWF is doing the full Firewall and I also have port 80 incoming blocked. But not 443! So you can still use HTTPS and yes you need to fill in under hostname the IP-address or the name of the KWF machine.

I hope this helps.

Rene.

Yes, this is exactly my office configuration!

I did a port mapping 4131 from Dlink to KWF firewall. Check to log any connection or protocol on this. Well, so far nothing been log! Sad

At home, I'm having the Dlink router and have had no port forward or open but the Skype working fine! Smile

Hi Joseph,

I would suggest removing the Dlink if possible and place it behind the KWF machine. So that all traffice goes thru the KWF machine.
You have now multiple points where things can go wrong.

Unless you are using the Dlink for a DMZ than I do not see why you can not change it like this.

What kind of ADSL modem do you have? If you are using a Thomson or Alcatel Speedtouch modem than it is very easy to configure it to move all traffic to the KWF machine.

Please let me know which brand and model you use if the above does not solve your problem.
