Skype - Internet telephony app with free LD calls
Authored by: wilton on May 22, '06 08:46:58AM

i've been using skype for a while and found a simple way to drastically improve sound quality if you are behind a NAT router, ie most home networks.

in Skype Preferences -> Advanced -> Incoming Connection Port pick a number other that the default but above 1024. Remember this number.

Then go to your router and enable Port forwarding, for this specific port, and redirect UDP packets to your Mac on this port.

Also, use USB headphones !

Will
