[Ekiga-list] Ekiga.net numeric aliases


First of all, thanks for Ekiga! Second, I'd like to add my vote to bring back the web interface, or at least the numeric alias feature.

As a bit of background, I am looking for a new VoIP provider for a circle of about 20 family and friends. We have used FreeWorldDialup in the past, and even paid for membership in 2008, but their service has been appalling lately. We all use Handytone 286/386/486 ATAs, and we would like to keep using them. Most of these people are non-technical users and they would have a hard time using a soft phone; besides, they are not in the habit of keeping their computers on 24/7. Me and my brother took the time to set up and configure all these ATAs.

Now we would love to switch to ekiga.net (we have been free software fans for many years), but to do so, we need numerical aliases in order to continue using ATAs and regular phones.

There are several advantages to using an ATA over a soft phone: there is no need to keep the computer up 24/7, we can use any phone we like (e.g. a cordless one or an answering machine) etc. Please, bring back numeric aliases!
