Skype problem - followup

I just installed Skype on 6.3prerelease, and tried to login as an existing 
user as I had already created an account on a Windoze machine.  When I try 
login from my BSD box the Skype login window says that its connecting but 
nothing happens.

If I use tcpdump on the interface I can see packets I think are going to 
Skype but I'm not sure.  There does not seem to be much to configure, am I
missing something?  I also tried to create a new account, but same thing, 
it says connecting but it never does.  I am able to use Skype from a 
box on the same network.  I am behind a firewall, but I let all 
connections out, so that should not be the problem.

Any ideas?


PS:  I see the following coming from tcpdump:

14:46:08.651647 IP > UDP, 
length 18
14:46:08.833159 IP > ICMP 
udp port 33033 unreachable, length 36
14:46:12.702939 IP > UDP, length 
14:46:12.882231 IP > ICMP udp 
port 33033 unreachable, length 36

Could this be the problem?  If so, is there a fix?
