Description

A user with Windows 7 reports that he is unable to start Skype 5.5.0.124 when the Tor Browser Bundle is running. Skype loads, he enters his username and password, Skype chews on it forever and comes back with "Skype can not connect".

Can someone with access to Windows 7, Skype, and TBB please test this?

Superseded?

«Skype refuses connections from IP addresses that run Tor exit relays, not because they worry about abuse via Tor (it's hard to use Skype over Tor), but because their blacklist provider has an incentive to be overbroad in its blocking»
