Ok, I finally got Ekiga working with BroadVoice (sort of). Here is what I 

Ekiga Preferences:
NAT Traversal Method: None
Outbound SIP Proxy: proxy.mia.broadvoice.com
Audio Codecs: Make sure that _only_ PCMU 64 kbps 8 kHz is checked.

Account Information:
Registrar: sip.broadvoice.com
User: <10 digit BroadVoice telephone number>
Password: <obtained from Account -> My Devices -> Edit on broadvoice.com>
Authentication Login: <10 digit BroadVoice telephone number>
Realm/Domain: sip.broadvoice.com

When I start Ekiga I can place one telephone call sucessfully. After that, 
Ekiga displays "Security check failed" when I attempt to make additional 
calls. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
