There is client software available which support the open H. Since I last talked about Skype and that it solved the firewall problem in peer to peer networks, a couple of people have been discussing it with me and asking me about it.

With this “anonymous” use of the computers at our site Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich we probably will have ckcs legal problems in the future. In the output from Fport it is clear, that this connections are going to the Skype software. The answer is to just take advantage of the indirect connection. In the first place I did not like the proprietary ccus of Skype ‘s solution even if they provide cost free service and a cost free software.

Read on for more They actually destroy the value chain that keeps the infrastructure going and that feeds them. The troube with peer to peer networks is just that: Noone will feed suckers like Skype for free anymore, if their not stupid. After further checking this computer with netstat and Fport from Foundstone I had a detailed look at the TCP ports 80 httphttps and which are not so common open on a users workstation.

They steal your cpu, bandwidth, and routing performance together with that of all ducs internet community and redistribute it somwhere else, deminusished by the performance neede to run their product. Yesterday there was a discussion started on the Full-Disclosure security mailing list with the Subject blocking SkyPE? Over 10 comments listed. It hasn’t been a problem for me even though I do have a top line computer, lol at about 3 ghz, I would hope it wouldn’t slow me down, talk about speed, lol.


Also worth mentioning as an alternative to both H. Cucd miss a story from Zef. But before I get to that, what was the problem again?

I walked over to the office where this computer is, to have a look at it and found the free Internet telephony from Skype running on it. Clients are directly connected to one another they are peers, hence the name. Well, I see what you’re saying, but I havn’t had any problems, as long as they can hide it and I don’t have to deal with cuca while I’m on the computer, besides, I don’t usually leave my programs running.

The connection was not to one of our servers which is quite common but to TCP port on a regular computer in an office. In the end they are really more like a desease of the networks, some kind of parasite organism that xucs care if it destroys the ressources of its host. When performance based computing and computing on demand becomes commonplace, skype will dry out, as computer performance will be openly available, but at a cost. Some info about what Skype does: For our international co-worker this seems to be an affordable way to talk to their relatives at home without expensive international phone calls.

This is how Skype works and it’s public knowledge. Last week our mail account for support got an email from somebody from Luxembourg asking why his computer has a open connection to one of our computers.

They live by the process of redistributing routing, CPU power and bandwith from the same people they serve, they steal performance and bandwidth from public networks and ccus off their profit from termination fees they are anabled to collect by standards and agreements that those public phone networks have made for their fair interworking – which is exatly that what ccucs are working hard for to destroy it.
