Thank you!

Could you be a little more specific on how you
have done this for different users on a single PC?

And should every Ekiga user behind a NAT router
use a different port?

And do I then have to configure the router to forward
certain ports back to the specific internal PC
(might be difficult with DHCP random IP assignments).

I can't see what ports I have to manage for Ekiga,
and what ports Ekiga is managing automatically.
