ghana skype cant connect

Hi. I am in Ghana and am having trouble connecting to Skype.

 

I followed Tamim's advice (post copied below) but now Skype won't even sign in and I'm getting a "Skype cannot connect" error message. This is not a problem with my internet connection.

 

Please help. Thanks!!!

Re: Skype can't connect

You can connect to Skype through a HTTPS proxy.

 

In Skype Click Tools >> Click Connection options...to configure your proxy settings.

 

type any port between 1024 and 65535

 

In the drop-down menu that appears in the middle of the connection options, select the HTTPS.

 

In the Host box type the proxy IP address 82.137.160.174 , In the box labeled Port, write the port of the proxy3128, Uncheck enable uPnP then click Save.

 

Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit"

 

Restart Skype and sign in.

Regards,
Tamim

ghana2013,

 

You can also try to install a Proxy software then connect to Skype.
