say im the host, i will lag when there are multiple users because of my low upload bandwidth. now, i have a pc located remotely with a good line. yes, i can use a remote control software to control the pc and host vnc, but its rather troublesome. any other better way?
How many users are we talking about? The bandwith should not be very high unless all are using Video.
We're talking about 3rd world country here. I monitor my latency so.. I just know my bandwidth's at limit when I host. I have a server elsewhere which i can VNC to. I hope to use this to host my skype sessions
You never answered my question, how many Skype clients and please read this here on Skype terms of service:
Please click the "Legal" link on the lower right bottom of this page.
Maybe some general information of what you are trying to do and for whom and what Skype services would help.
Saying "We're talking about 3rd world country here" is not any detail on what you are trying to do and for whom and for how many at a time and using what Skype services.
5 users -- group conversation. Would like 6-8 users. A "server" would be nice because my personal upload bandwidth is just 384kbit. I have a server else where which is 200mbit.
Just one thought. Skype to Skype voice calls are peer to peer. The only interaction with Skype central is when you login and when the call is being set up. I'd have thought having a private server is not going to make much difference.

If you ran a logged on Skype client on the server and created a group chat you might be able to use this method to handle this: tinyurl.com/6fpy3kr
