Try to call:
sip:yournumber sip voiparound com
instead of sip:yournumber
There is this error in your log:
SIP Connecting to sip:[...] via [...]
Socket Illegal RFC952 characters in DNS name [...]
Opal Could not find host [...]
OK, tried that (I thought I had tried that several times in the
troubleshooting I had done before sending a mail to this list), and I
can make a call now... the call quality is shockingly bad, but I do
get through using the full sip:yournumber sip voiparound com syntax.
Is this a new requirement? In 2.0.12 I could simply type in the phone
I propose (maybe I will fix too):
- either print "Malformed number" or something like this
- or desactivate the Call button until the number has a @ inside
This seems like a major regression in functionality... doesn't it?
I don't think so, because of the auto-completion feature (small combobox
opened upon typing address).
Personally, I can type in the whole mess to make a call, but I am not
the only user on this computer... there are other no-so-computer savvy
users who use Ekiga to make calls. If I have to try to re-train them
to type in a long and, to them, complicated URI to make a call, they
will simply stop using it, or I will have to roll back to 2.0.12.
There is an auto-completion feature.
Also, do you remember the old days when the e-mail addresses could
contain only user names? Nowadays, the host name is mandatory...
