Call between 2 computers on the same account

I have two computers on the same account. One is my home office desktop, the other is my mobile. This is useful as both computers use the same credit account. In addition, if I am travelling, or I am at the office, people are still able to contact me at the same address.

 

I am able to make phone and video calls from both of my computers to other computers but I am unable to set them up so that the computers can communicate with each other.

Is this possible?

If so how?

 

I hope that if what I am asking is impossible I don't have to set up a separate account on my mobile in order that my two computers can communicate with each other using the same account.

You can't for example chat to the other computer using the same Skype names on both.

 

That said, if you have online numbers, you can call those Online Number(s) and both computers can ring, however only one can answer the call.

Re: Call between 2 computers on the same account

Since I am unable to call between 2 computers on the same account, can I have 2 accounts on the same computer?

 

If so, do I merely download another iteration of Skype and install it on my portable in a different subdirectory of programs with a different username, password and phone number?

If this is not possible, how may I get around this?

 

BTW, thank you TheUberOverLord for your quick and suscinct reply.
