Step 2:  After installing the beta, open skype and click Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection.

Check the box that says "allow direct connections to your contacts only".  Then RESTART skype.

WHAT THIS DOES: This will hide your IP from anyone NOT in your contact list.  Skype Resolvers will no longer work to get your IP.

WHAT THIS DOES NOT DO:  It does not hide your IP from anyone you add on your contacts list.  Resolvers still won't work, but if anyone in your contacts list knows how to manually get your IP they'll be able to do it.
