Firewall history or allowed events associated with Skype -whether it be incoming or outgoing does not indicate the identity of computers/persons that were not blocked.

Each allowed event is associated with me not the entity being being granted connection. Skype's protocol is comparable, although dissimilar, to protocols like AOL Instant Messenger (i Chat).

However this is not recommended, since the person may not be using the same computer next time they connect to your Mac.

My Norton Confidential Vulnerability Protection is set to maximum.

Firewall history of blocked events includes blockade of many attempts to access my computer through Skype.

When she initiates a call I do not get a warning that somebody is trying to connect with me via Skype.

Sometimes, during a conversation a warning will come up and I can't hear her until I hit disallow.

With i Chat, everbody computer connects to the AOL servers.

When somebody wants to chat with you, they tell the AOL servers they want to chat with you, and the AOL servers relay that message back to you—so basically the AOL servers are like a man in the middle.

Users can still access Skype’s official website: and sign in to “Account” to check call history, purchase orders, and change account settings etc. If you have any question regarding Skype service, please feel free to contact our Customer Support.

If you don’t have a Skype account yet, it’s easy to get started.

Likewise, when people call me (as in the phone rings and a small Skype wiindow identifying the caller pops up asking if I want to accept the call) I do not receive an NIS warning.
