Default Skype bandwidth consumption behind a firewall?

On 21 Jul 2005, "totojepast" wrote:

When you connect a single PC running Skype to the Internet, it may
become a Skype supernode, thus consuming a lot of bandwidth. When the
PC is hidden behind a corporate firewall and NAT and the Skype client
is able to utilize only an HTTP protocol, is the Skype client able to
become a supernode? If not, does its bandwidth consumption decrease
when it is idle?

For general information, there's now uk.telecom.voip which will
usually be a better group than uk.telecom for such questions.
It was set up a few months ago, and last time I checked headers,
had at least 1500 posts. Follow-ups set to exclude uk.telecom.
