Skype and Hotspot Shield

I use Skype every day - and have been for eight or nine years now. . .

I just recently bought Hotspot Shield, and now incoming calls are immediately forwarded to either my voicemail or mobile phone - Skype on my Mac doesn't recognise the incoming call. It is as if Skype were not on.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so. . . any suggestions?


Thanks in advance ~

I am having the same trouble and have not yet been able to solve it. I'm using Hot Spot Shield on a Macbook Pro, using Apple's firewall and the most recent version of Skype. When Hot Spot Shield is on, it takes Skype off-line. It's very frustrating.
