Allowing Skype through the PA

Allowing Skype through the PA

We have a business group that wants to use Skype. I am very concerned about allowing unknown-udp or unknown-tcp ports out through our PA. Has anyone allowed Skype through their PA and if so, can you offer any suggestions as to how to do it securely?

Not sure what you want to know here.

Skype is already known traffic in the PA. It's identified as skype and skype-probe.

It should be enough to allow these two to allow skype.

You can also take a look at this document describing how you can control Skype

Jo Christian's approach is bang on.  We granted access by Active Directory Group so that the user has the access where ever they may be on the network. We still block unknown TCP and UDP outbound connections.
