I follow the discussion with great interst. I use Skype and VoIPBuster a lot, because the children and family of my wife live in the States, Australia and China. However, until now I am not able to get Ekiga working. The webcam is not working, and I found out that I have to pay for the calls using Ekiga. (home phoners/fixed).
Question: I am a real newbee, any reamrks concerning the items I wrote above. Please comment.

Hello Dee,

WOW a 56 K modem connection. Ekiga gives me audio fits when video
works and I have a broadband connection.
