Specify a WAN for Skype using Linksys RV042

Unanswered Question
May 30th, 2010

Hello

I need to configure the RV042 in a way that Skype would go to WAN1, while other services to WAN2.

AFAIK Skype uses HTTP, so is there a way to specify that without putting all the HTTP requests on WAN1?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

Protocol Binding allows you to bind http to certain WAN port based on destination IP address. But if the destination IP address is not a static IP, it may not work well if users specify the URL.

Anyone knows to what IP(s) Skype connects?

If I bind VOIP ports (10000-20000) for WAN1, will Skype communications take place through WAN1?

I have some info you can find on Skype for SIP, which is a service offered by Skype which allows a SIP trunk (like from from the UC500) into the Skype network which is standards based, not Skype proprietary.
