My Skype is oworking only on non-SP2 machines
On SP2 machines appears the event id error 4226

The only way to make the skype loging in is removing the skype.exe from the permitted list and DISABLING WIndows firewall

I would like to use Skype on XP SP2 ith Windows Firewall turned ON with an execption to permit skype traffice

Skype works fine on my WinXP SP2 with the firewall turned on with the
skype.exe permitted.

I don't know if this will be any help:

4226 - WINS_EVT_CONFLICT_OWN_ADD_TBL
WINS could not update the Owner ID-to-Address mapping table in the
database. This means the in-memory table that maps to the database table has
gotten out of sync with the database table.
Check the application log for the Exchange component, ESENT. The WINS
database may have to be restored.

The error 4226 come from TCPIP source, not WINS source
The Skypes is OK, now

The procedure:

1) Install Skype
2) Remove Skype entry on Windows Firewall (app allowed to use)
3) Disable Firewall
4) Open Skype (it add the entry, automatically, on list of app permitted to use)
5) Enable Firewall
6) Skypes is OK!

Does not make sense, but...
