    Default Skype Blocking

    Now that the Skype protocol has effectively been reverse engineered, when will we see Skype blocking?

    Except that it hasn't been. The guy posted a method for decompressing the video stream. That still doesn't give you a signature to block and it still doesn't list all the many ways that skype morphs to get around firewalls.

    It often helps troubleshooting if you have a good network map. Look here if you want my advice on how to draw one.
