There are 2 different things here :
- the servers you want to browse for remote contacts : they are in the
- the servers you want to register to : they are in the preferences

Seriously, do you know many people registering to several ILS servers at
the same time? I'm not sure how you proposed idea would solve the
problem you are describing by the way (ie having to double-click on each
of his callto addresses to see if he is registered or not)

If we allow registering to several ILS servers, those ILS servers will
automatically be added to the addressbook, that sounds logical.

We could also have something more complicated from a code point of view
- Right-clicking on a server in teh addressbook brings a "properties
- Enabling registering in that popup would add the server in the list in
the prefs. Disabling registering in that popup would remove the server
in the list in the prefs.

I think that is the ideal solution, but I don't plan to code such a
thing before 1.00 because time is lacking and I still have much to do
(and most people only register to one server at a time).

> also possible to list them there, also with connected endpoints listed?

Unfortunately H.323 gatekeepers do not allow to list connected
endpoints. If it was permitted we would have replaced ILS servers by
gatekeepers a long time ago, because ILS is not that great.

You would have to patch openldap to pass the IP in a variable to the
perl sript. However, if those people do not forward the appropriate
ports from the gateway to the internal host, it won't work.

If you have a personal ILS server for people you know, I would suggest
you to replace it by a gatekeeper able to proxy, that would be of far
better quality.
