Dear rehman123,

That is because there should be some firewall installed on your computer which is configured to prevent users from using yahoo webcam service.

If you have not installed any firewall , contact the system administrator

Thanks,
Sunray

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

so i think you may have a try to create filter for webcam on firewall, to allow incoming/outgoing on TCP port 5100, but i am not sure its success except you allow only one computer behind firewall to accept webcam call from the internet.

hope it helps,
bbao
