[GnomeMeeting-list] Getting started with ekiga

I have just installed ekiga on two hosts on my home LAN and host-to-host over 
the LAN, it seems to work well. The problem is connecting via the internet. 
When the set-up wizard probes my ADSL router, it says it has Port Restricted 
NAT and I should enable STUN. According to the documentation that should be 
enough, but both my hosts have their own firewalls using iptables since 
sometimes I use dial-up. The router has no firewall rules and just does NAT. 
I opened port 1720 on both hosts so they could listen for calls but when I 
try to connect via the sip registration method, I always get user is offline. 
I see there are examples of rules for iptables doing NAT and packet 
forwarding but the documentation seems to imply I don't need to do that. Some 
clarification please!
