Beware firewall and security issues
Authored by: silas on May 22, '06 08:58:03AM
I'm a Skype fan, too. But...I thought it worth noting that anyone considering using Skype for the first time, or in wide deployment, should be aware of the various concerns raised about its funky firewall circumvention techniques and proprietary protocols. As a network administrator, I don't really like how difficult it is to shape or block Skype traffic on its own. Skype users (current and would-be) should consider these things before going too far down that path.
