Skype connection problem

4 replies 632 views Edited Apr 9, 2011

I am having issues with my psp connecting to skype.

I get following error:

Skype could not connect.

You maybe behind a firewall or you maybe experiencing trouble connecting to the internet/

Please check your connection and try again.

Skype works fine on my laptop.

My psp can browse web pages with no problems.

I tried turning off the firewall in the router, with no results.

Suggestions?

Could you try enabling Port 80 and 443, then forward your main port (usually 5 digits), 80 and 443?

My Skype on PSP and laptop works great.

Sounds like a problem with Skype itself, not the PSP. I'm really not sure what the problem is, so I would look for advice here: http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showforum=150

No it sounds like the port forwarding as mentioned earlier, if the PSP is connecting to the router under a different IP address (which it should be) than the PC then the router is not allowing all the information through on that port.
