For the past two days i have trying unsuccessfully to connect to friends on skype. Infact i can log into skype and even place the call and get to hear a few ‘seconds’ worth of conversation but thereafter its just static and crackling sounds.After trying several tweaks and options i ended up on the Skype forums only to find out that the cultprit is the Cisco VPN client that i use to connect to my University WiFi! wow..so much for getting ‘connected’. The solution on the forums was to upgrade the Cisco software on the server side, which i doubt would really be a solution to a student. What’s worse in the fact is that the Cisco system causes trouble on several other voip software like Google talk and Voip cheap.
If anybody has found a solution then please let me know (via a comment).
