OK, I have set SIP ALG to enabled, rebooted the router and removed the STUN value. I am getting incoming calls now with Ekiga. Now testing if it is stable.

What about twinkle, are you using STUN with twinkle or not ?
Also, could you post a -d 4 output to pastebin with a call attempt ?
OK, I believe I am starting to understand what is happening. My Router (Netgear DGN2000) has the feature SIP ALG enabled. If I disable that, then primarily testing shows that Ekiga is stable with incoming calls. The reason that twinkle works with SIP ALG enabled is that there is an option selected called "NAT traversal not needed" which has been selected. To be complete, Twinkle has 3 options:
-1 NAT Traversal not needed
-2 Use statically configured public IP address. (and an ip address can be entered)
-3 Use STUN. (and a STUN server can be entered)
OK, so now I have enabled this SIP ALG and disabled STUN with Ekiga, but no incoming calls now.
The way I disabled STUN is to remove the value in key /apps/ekiga/general/nat/stun_server (make it blank). Is that the correct way?
I would prefer to run Ekiga without STUN. Any additional I can set to disable the NAT traversal in Ekiga?
Btw, my testing on Windows and Fedora 10 64 bit have the same results, which is good!
Ok, all appears to be stable now. Connected without STUN, SIP ALG enabled and connected for > 1 hour now. As a tip, perhaps it is handy to put the STUN switch in the GUI rather than as a config item in gconf-editor which is more difficult to edit. On Windows for instance, there is no gconf-editor, so have no idea how to disable the STUN server for the Ekiga Windows port.
Thanks for you help in getting this resolved Damien! Much appreciated. Keep up the good Ekiga work!
