I know many people have had issues using Skype while logged into a Network Home Folder. It would take 25 minutes to log in and then everything would work fine. Here's my fix:

My solution has been to create a new folder named Skype in /Library/Application\ Support, set its permissions to 777 so that all users can access it, and then create a symbolic link in each user's ~/Library/Application\ Support folder that points to the /Library/Application\ Support/Skype folder.

The following terminal commands will accomplish the task, and are computer-specific:

mkdir /Library/Application\ Support/Skype
chmod -R 777 /Library/Application\ Support/Skype

The following commands remove the user's ~/Library/Application\ Support/Skype folder and replace it with a symbolic link to /Library/Application\ Support/Skype. They are user-specific:

rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Skype
ln -s /Library/Application\ Support/Skype ~/Library/Application\ Support/Skype

It seems to work well now. Let me know if you have any questions.
