I have been doing this for years. Just use gconf-edit
to assign different ports to each instance of ekiga.
Actually even that isn't necessary because the NAT
router changes ports anyway.

Your public IP address

+ port
is used to register the Ekiga instance.

Thank you!

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

Sorry. I should have been explicit. I was referring to the case of several PCs behind a single NAT router. Not multiple ekigas on one PC. That said, surely each user can have their own ports specified in
~/.gconf/apps/ekiga/ which ought to work?

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

For multiple PCs, that is what I do, although I am pretty sure that it
is not really needed since the NAT mapping ensures distinct external ports from different machines.

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).

Use port triggering as on the wiki.
