If you would like to use analog telephone on an VoIP network, you
need ATA (analog telephone adapter - ask google). But since this is a
SIP client itself, you don't need ekiga anymore.

For example, I have IP telephones at home/company and ekiga on my 
laptop. Ekiga allows me to register to my VoIP provider and make  calls
from wherever as long as I am connected to internet. Because I 
always login with the same provider, the calees always see the same 
caller ID.

Hope this helps a bit,
