Have a new Skype account, have downloaded the sw but when I try to connect the message 'skype cannot connect' comes up. I tried changing the password and re-downloading the sw but still the same. I am most certainly online and have good broadband...any tips?
Solved! Go to Solution.
just discovered the cause - needed to close the VPN that linked me to my biz network - Skype does not work if that connection is open!
This was the exact problem thank you I just went and unblocked skype on my firewall and now it works perfectly
Whew. Glad you found that. It would've been hard to troubleshooting by remote control.
Thanks for passing along the solution which may help someone else in the future.
I have contacts disappearing from my contact list. I was asked to upgrade to the latest skype. I did that 30 minutes ago. Now I cannot contact anybody.An error message appears saying that I am offline and I could not change that status. I had a credit over $16 and it dropped to $14 without me making any calls. Only failed attempts at calls. Adel
I keep getting error message 2738 and I just cannot log in.
I have been a Skye client with buying credits only.
I am reviewing the option an getting an annual subscription , Canada being my base.
Q. Can I assign my cell as the number for incoming and outgoing calls from Canad and the US.?
