    Which ports need to be open to use Skype on 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
    • 50000-60000/UDP

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