I don't know which to choose: when blocking all, I'm afraid of hampering Skype's functionality and with allowing all, I'm afraid of exposing my laptop to hackers.

So the firewall is doing its job, and telling you that somebody is trying to connect to your Mac.You can allow just that person to access Skype on your Mac by clicking the Allow button, which will that person to access Skype while you are talking to them.However this is not recommended, since the person may not be using the same computer next time they connect to your Mac. This is obviously not recommended at all as it leaves your Mac open, but if you trust that nobody will connect to your Mac using Skype except people you know, then you might find this option OK. I receive regular Norton firewall warnings "The computer "xxxx.xxx" is attempting to access on your computer. I have no way of knowing who the person trying to contact me is.

Can they continue with Vine Server and I will be able to connect to them with the 10.5 Screen Sharing app?

When using Skype, the connection blocking part of the firewall in NIS keeps popping up with the question "the computer (xxx.xxx) is attempting to access Skype" with the usual "Block" and "Allow" options.

When you "talk" to another person on Skype, you actually connect to their computer, and then that person connects back to you.

The final way I can put things: Norton Firewall will alert you when somebody tries to connect to your Mac, and Skype is the application that is making the connection.

We don't know why Skype made the connection, nor what the other person will do when they connect to your Mac.

Skype is just another application, so Norton Firewall doesn't distinguish "phone calls" from other Internet activity.
