I've installed Skype-22.214.171.124 on my FC2 system. It worked out of the
box. But the problem is that voice breaks a lot to such an extent that
a decent conversation becomes impossible. I am NATed behind my own
router. I've forwarded all ports above 1024 and allowed UDP on them. I
have 64Kbps connection but the latency is high on my connection. I get
more like 48-56Kbps speeds. As I understand Skype isn't very bandwidth
efficient. Can someone point me to a better VoIP software or some hacks
so that Skype plays nicely with my connection?

Well thats why I said redirect port 53.
When port 53 is redirected alternate DNS would not work as user

General users do not know how to do all that. There are many other
ways to access sites too. Anonymous proxies (not necessarily running
on port 80), SOCKS and all which is too tough to block.
But most of people do not know all that.
And if one is expert to do that, which means that person is doing
something which is banned by Government and hence illegal so can
get himself arrested.

It is ok if it is at HBCSE. I say this because I live
I'm interested to meet LUG members. The last I had
attended was in February. :(

Three ways to do this and not at all expensive:
1) Make your DNS server host blogspot.com and redirect ALL port 53 traffic to it and block blockedblog.blogspot.com requests.
2) Use transparent proxy which also does SNAT, back to original IP for outgoing packets.
3) Just like ip_conntrack_ftp module which tracks PORT commands, develope ip_conntrack_http module which tracks HTTP "Host:" header and blocks the blocked sites.
3rd option seems to be much more easy (and technically sound as it would require no redirection/NAT) once code is developed and can also be implemented on router chip.

How do I check that?
