Hello,

 

1 - Yes, Skype can be blocked as well as AIM/ICQ/TOC, Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger...

2 - The licensing for Web Gateway is included in the Protection Suite, the only additional licensing available is for the URL filtering, which would allow them to block websites by category (like weapons, adult content, etc.)
