Version 5.1, just downloaded from Microsoft. As I mentionned, with one
person, Ekiga-WM communication works fine, and with another, SIP
registration fails. In both cases, it's the same version of WM, but a
different ISP. Another possibility that occured to me is that some
spyware or other malware is blocking things.
If you can give me a few pointers as to how to investigate what the
problem may be (ISP blocking, spyware, WM or Winodws bug, etc.) I'd be
more than willing to try.
The ISP of the person whose SIP connection doesn't work is videotron.ca.
Many thanks in advance,
