Just to make things clear for everyone :
- The link I posted is related to FreeWorldDialup, an alternative to
Ekiga.net. The service was free during a few years, and they are now
asking for a yearly fee.
- The advantage of a service like Ekiga.net or FreeWorldDialup is that
it is running 24/24 on a public server. It provides a SIP address.
Why would I ask for a fee instead of keeping the service free ?
I don't know, I was just asking for opinions : would you be ready to pay
a small fee or would you stop using the service.
When a service asks for a small fee, let's say 10 or 20 dollars per
year, it is less than the price being paid for a book. It represents
very few money.
Will I do that for Ekiga.net ? Probably not. I was just asking for
