Oh. Sorry.
Thought you were in one LAN with them.

How about this:
Gnomemeeting-Opal ( beta-version of Gnomemeeting 1.3 ) supports SIP.
You can use an SIP-Client like X-Lite along with a free SIP-Provider (
example: www.freeworlddialup.com ) on the Windows hosts. X-Lite woks
with STUN, that allows you to pass the NAT.
For calls inside the LAN you use the LAN-IP.

GM-Opal works very well. The only major problem is, that the iLBC-Codec
is currently broken.
