I have installed Linphone to try it.

Using Linphone, I have just attempted a phone call to you (Greg). Linphone shows the call as having been successful, with a duration of about 45 seconds, but, after the ringing stopped, the line went quiet, and I did not hear any sound coming from the other end.

So, I assume that Linphone can not communicate with Ekiga.

That is my assumption, but I do not know enough for that assumption to be valid.

According to the web page at http://wiki.ekiga.org/index.php/Ekiga_Interoperability , communication between Ekiga and Linphone (v1.5), should work, for video and audio.

The version of Linphone that I installed, is 3.3.2-1, from the packages repository for Debian Linux 6.0.x .

Anyway, if you could advise what, if anything, shows in your event history, for that attempt, it would be good.

I further advise that I have just used Linphone to try to connect with the Ekiga Echo Test Number; 500 ekiga net The video window went green, with a little video window within that window, of me at my end (which I assume is what happens in the course of a successful vidoe call; that the caller sees a small window of the video of the caller, within the larger window of the video of the other party), but, in the course of the call, I heard no sound from the other end.

The call history event record shows as

Outgoing call at Thu Feb 21 01:01:11 2013
From: "Bret Busby of Armadale, Western Australia" <sip:bret@ <IP address > >
To: <sip:500 ekiga net>
Status: completed
Duration: 2 mn 1 sec

Unfortunately, in Linphone, the SIP address includes my IP address within my LAN, which I do not like, rather than, as Ekiga shows, using the SIP address of <account name@ SIP host>.

So, again, it appears that Linphone and Ekiga, do not communicate with each other, which appears to indicate that SIP communications can only ocur within each separate SIP provider, and, not between different SIP providers.

And, again, that is no more than my personal deduction, based on my experience, and, not on any knowledge other than my experience as stated.
