    Only suggestion is to ask your network administrator why Skype was restricted and whether an exception can be made for you. There is nothing (legal or ethical) that you can do on your own. -- Tom

    Definitely ask your network admin...or setup Skype on your own personal computer, assuming that's allowed in your organization.

    If you installed this on your home system, then you set up the pay version and you are probably trying to call a phone, which is a definite paying option.  I installed the free version and I do not have that problem.  Now, if you installed it at work, called your IT department.
