Easy - don't use your SIP-Account.  There is no need for a SIP-Account
when you are connecting via VPN.  And the SIP Service certainly knows
nothing about your VPN and has no access to it.  That is the point of a

To connect to another SIP client over VPN, just use sip:user@192.168.x.x 

Now perhaps you are trying to connect to a public IP via the SIP
service, and just happen to be running a VPN at the same time.  This
probably means that your VPN software is redirecting the default route
to the VPN.  You'll have to take that up with whatever VPN software you
are using.  Ekiga has nothing to do with it.
