Release Skype

Release skype

I searched the forum and found several people with this same problem, but no solution.

How do I free Skype? Step by step please.

What I've already tried:
1) I created host with many skype IPs; I put the rule and it did not work;
2) I created an Application Filter, releasing skype, I put it in the rule and it did not work;
3) I created a WhiteList with several skype URLs and applied in the rule and it did not work;

INFO: Before creating any rule, I accessed site and downloaded skype. When trying to install, it gave an error stating that it was not possible to connect to the skype server. I created the ApplicationFilter rule and I was able to install and log in to skype.
After the logon, the loading icon is loaded and NEVER loads!

Version: SFOS 16.05.8 MR-8

  • Tiago,

    make sure you disable the micro-app scanning:

    system application_classification microapp-discovery show

    In my case, I am not able to perform calls.

    Where  is this option? And where does it run?

    Continuing my searches yesterday, I found a link on the Symantec site informing the URLs and IPs that would need to be released. Yesterday I added these settings and it did not work. I have the habit of leaving my lab connected at night, and when I got to the office was skype connected?!?! That's weird.

    Link symantec: https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH245980.html I believe SOPHOS should have something similar to this Symantec procedure.

     

    With this configuration could connect in skype and use the chat. Now another challenge, how to free the calls by skype?

    login.live.com


    Verified from the North Eastern United States, these IP addresses/subnets are associated with the consumer version of Skype:

    91.190.216.0 / 255.255.255.0 
    91.190.218.0 / 255.255.255.0

     

    PS: Our SOPHOS does not have a procedure to release an application and is one of the most used applications in the world. How can such a thing?!?!

  • In reply to Tiago Toledo:

    As it was my rule and this way I was able to install, log in and use the chat on skype.
    Call could not make it work! We need to see how to release the calls.

  • In reply to Tiago Toledo:

    Same here.

    With v17, when I receive a skype call on mobile (which has an expection on firewall rule), XG stops responding and internet goes down. As soon I hang-up the call, internet works again. I will report the issue to v17 section.

    With v16.5, Skype calls do not work.

    I rebooted all my lab and now skype does not connect anymore.

    Share with me your rule so I can see?

  • In reply to Tiago Toledo:

    Continuing the searches, I found link of microsoft with more networks and URLs to release, I put all in the rule and I was able to connect.
    Even the call is working.

    making skype working should be easier and not creating a long list of exception. Why Sophos Application filter is not working as expected?

    Thanks to .

  • Sorry to report but skype has stopped working! It's unbelievable!
    Came back with the previous problem, login is done but does not connect!
