MWG 7.7 and Skype T_T


I got a real annoying situation with MWG 7.7 and Skype..

I can log in to skype, but it does not connect, it is retrying the connection and even looking at the MWG rule tracing I can not find anything blocking the connection.

I followed many guides that I found here, but none gave me a favorable result.

Even try to create a single rule letting the IP of my computer have full Internet output.

I am using the MWG in transparent mode with MCP and AD based authentication.

Anyone have any ideas on how to make it work?

These are my rules for now:

SSL Scanner exception:

Allow "Gerencia" full to internet:

Note: Does not connect even by deactivating the SSL scanner

Thanks for your help in advance

Skype consumer has changed it's operation. See here: and check out my comments at the end. Skype consumerkeeps getting nastier and nastier, you cannot allow or control it without opening huge security holes. If someone finds a way to effectively, selectively and securely allow it with any product McAfee or other, please post here.
