Skype and 044

Postby bob selby » Mon Jun 02, 2014 3:23 am

My wife has been using Skype for a while now without problems - and my daughter can call her from her laptop OK.

However, when my daughter tries to call her from her Andriod phone the call fails :-(

Does the Android version use an alternative set of ports that need to be opened ??

Any tips welcome as I'm getting earache from the two of them.

Outgoing calls will always work with Skype for FREESCO, however you must configure port forwarding and choose an incoming port before you will be able to receive a call. I do not think it really matters what the client is using. I am referencing this article ... ws-desktop

I do NOT recommend using a really high port as FREESCO uses them for NAT. But a TCP port above 1040 and below 48711 will work fine.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
