    Smoothwall + Skype + SSL Login

    Hi,

    I am moving our boarding pupils over to SSL logins slowly but am having issues with skype. When I look at the log I am seeing Transparent HTTPS connection not supported by web client. It worked okay when I asked them to put the username and password in the proxy boxes of Skype but I am also wasnting to use kerberos at some point.

    I don't have any HTTPS inspection policies in place.

    Strangley (and annoyingly) I am trying to test this on a virtual pc and the filtering is picking up the previous users username when I am using a local users account for testing. Different profile, different username but picking up the old username of a previous user on that computer.

    Bit of a thread resurrection here... but did you get anywhere with this?

    I'm also seeing Transparent HTTPS connection not supported by web client - but I think it's because the students are trying to use Skype without logging in to the SSL login page first...

    It usually works for us when they log on with SSL then open Skype. The only issue we had was with Windows 8 (I have to put an older version on) and non M$ products.

    I did open up the firewall too with some high end ports, I didn't like it but it did seem to get Skype to be more reliable.

    Skype on Windows 8 works here if you install the desktop version as the app version does not have the option to add proxy details.

    I also have the same problem with iOS, no way (that we can find) of getting Skype on iOS working

    Have a look at our knowledgebase as we have a couple of Skype articles in there. We're also rolling out improvements to SNI support which might help too.
