    I'd like to install Skype on my desktop system. How do I have to configure my firewall to make Skype work (in good quality)? Do any special ports have to be open?

    Where do you live?

    In north america there is a company called Vonage that has a VOIP service that does not need an active PC just needs a hi-speed line.
