Right...and none of this is because of squid. Squid is an HTTP proxy...it DOES NOT proxy other ports, such as the ones for viber or skype. Those are not HTTP connections. If you want them to work, you have to allow that traffic through your firewall.

That is correct, you do. And the VERY FIRST HIT in Google for "how to block skype with iptables" is:
http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php...-script.68997/

...complete with samples, working scripts, etc. Did you try to look this up?

Blocking skype blocks skype; it doesn't matter if you are using it on a phone, tablet, or PC. Block the addresses/ports/ranges, and you block the service. That's what the job of your firewall is. Want to block viber? Then block THAT port/server. Do this for each and every service you want to block.
