Any way to block skype from our network using IPTABLES ?

  • Find out what port it's running on by installing it on a machine you control and running wireshark. – Andrew Jul 29 '10 at 6:47
  • it seems skype application uses ports dynamically scanning which are not blocked. – nitins Jul 30 '10 at 7:13

Skype is P2P-like, it's very difficult to block it using only iptables. You should checkout layer7 (http://l7-filter.sourceforge.net/protocols)
