Not according to the articles I cited. It sounds like Sype is an order
of magnitude or maybe 2 better at bypassing firewalls than any normal
well behaved software, P2P or other.
If you skimmed through those references you'll have seen that:
- In using Skype you give them permission to do it if they can.
- They are extremely good at burrowing through firewalls AND not
showing that it is being done using any of the standard tools.
And may be tempted to conclude that
- If they can they do.
- They often can.
When you read an article whose major gist is "ONE vendor CLAIMS that
they have found a method to stop Skype getting out/in when you use it
..." then one has to wonder.
