    Which ports need to be open to use Skype for Windows desktop?

    Back to search results

    For Skype to work correctly, the following ports need to be open in your firewall:

    • 443/TCP
    • 3478-3481/UDP
    • 49152-65535/UDP + TCP

    If your firewall restricts access to these ports, you will need to update your firewall settings before you can use Skype.
