Re: Skype resolver

In order for a Skype resolver not to have your current IP, you will need to enable this setting on ALL your Skype clients.  This protects you from everybody but your contacts.  If you find one of your contacts is obtaining your IP (even without a resolver), then attacking you, you will need to remove them from your contacts.

 

I have tested this out and it does work.   However you may not see a change until your ISP issues you a new IP.  After enabling this setting you can call you ISP and have them change it, or possibly change out network hardware or your hardware address to get issued a new IP when your modem power cycles.  Most ISP's change your IP at least once a week.
