This might be what you are looking for:
On the other hand, I would really caution you against installing software
such as Skype or VoIP without your network admin's permission. Apart from
possibly being a breach of your conditions of employment, angry network
admins can cause quite a bit of pain when they track down the source of
the flood of packets that has knocked people off the network. Well, at
least I do to people who insist on running software without permission ;)
