Default accessing skype

hello everyone,

This summer I am working in a woods logging camp. We have a phone in the camp, but due to the amount of people living here, I can only use it for about 15 minutes a night. So I decided that I could use skype to call home to my family. Unfortunately it seems that the internet connection has a firewall that is blocking the use of skype. I downloaded the software, but when i go to sign in, it just says signing in, and never actually connects. I have used skype on my computer at home, so i know it works.

I was wondering if there was a way to bypass what is not allowing me to use skype. Would a VPN would allow me to use skype?

Any help would be appreciated. I am in Canada, not sure if that is important

Yeah.. VPN will allow you to use Skype. VPN will unblock your Skype and solve the issue no matter where you are..
