Sounds like a firewall or an antivirus.

I agree, it sounds like a firewall problem. Do you have Windows Firewall active, or do you have something like McAfee or Norton Firewall/Internet Security installed?

I've run Skype on 56k and broadband and it works on both (better sound quality and response on broadband, obviously).

And you do not need a Skype phone. PC speaker and mike will do, a headset or just about anything that blurts out and receives sound.

And yes, Skype is great. Has anyone out there tried vSkype yet? I've downloaded it but not tried it yet.

What version of Windows are you on? We have W98 but it needs W2000 or newer so we can't use it yet.
