Skype has an option to listen on tcp/80 and tcp/443 for incoming connections,
because it assumes somehow that firewalls will be configured to allow that
traffic in (some Windowze world assumption, i guess).
In the tools menu, go to Options, Advanced, untick the option that reads "Use
port (sic) 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections".
Apply, exit skype, restart it.
sockstat -4 | grep skype | grep \*:80
that skype is NOT listening on port 80 (you shouldn't see any output back from
that cmd) ( similar for 443)
RTFM and STFW before anything bad happens.
