RE: Skype bypasses Windows XP Firewall

Dear All,

I'm wondering does anyone have clue regarding Skype (A free internet VOIP
thingy : http://www.skype.com) which bypasses Windows XP SP2 firewall. 

It just automatically adds itself to the exception list without user
intervention.

But if u were to use ZoneAlarm, the ZA is still able to detect and block
connection. 

It there something lagging in the Windows Firewall or is it the program
which can bypass it.

If you require further assistance or would like more details, please do not
hesitate to contact us.
