Dear Terry,

You need a sip account only to use ekiga, This account logs into a
remote server (not your server) to connect. This sip account you can buy
at ekiga or other sip selling parties like voipbuster or a dsl adsl
provider etcetera.

You fill in this siop account info in the ekiga settings or other sip
protocol capable software or hardware.

Sometimes you have to set-up nat settings of your network, this is kind
of the downside of the sip protocol.

BTW, I will not answer any of your emails again if you use HTML mails
for normal text messages.

Best regards,


Thanks for that info, since I am in a windows enviro here at the day
job, I wasn't able to research that. I do thank you for that
information.  Just for the sake of keeping the piece I have replied to
this email in text only, not the outlook standard default of html.

Thank You
