    Yea it's trying to manually reread the dns server and bypass the windows dns cache rofl... i don't think that's going to work


    Eh I tried. Ran this in vmware with win2k and managed to setup an account.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Ekiga with voipcheap account

    hi you might get some better results if you use x-lite 3.0 for w in do ze installed in wine (not a normal one but in the wine created by ie4linux script) http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=2419
    the prog works with many voip provider ie freecall (it might work with voipcheap too)
    so far i was only able to ring but not to talk though but this might be because of my settings or some dll issues.

    good luck

    if you manage to talk then give some feedback here

    pd i just observed that my reply is really off topic as this thread is on how to use voipcheap qith ekiga sorry

    Re: HOWTO: Install Ekiga with voipcheap account

    i cannot understand why i cannot register in ekiga with cheapVoip or Internetcalls or anything else but ekiga account.

    I followed the instruction, and many other similar in the net, but no results; the same procedure allows me to use tweakle with no problems, so it is not a router's firewall problem (no pc firewall)

    I'm using edgy.

    If someone can help me.............

    Pb with tweakle is poor quality of sound for conterpart (this doesn't happen in XP with Cheapvoip software, so it is a tweakle problem)

    i would add that ekiga works fine in 6.06 - it is definitely a problem with 6.10. Problems in quality of voice are the same as tweakle.

    Any idea?

    Ekiga works fine in 6.10.

    And just as an update to this thread, the betamax voip sites (voipdiscount.com, voipbuster.com, etc) don't have a time limit anymore. You need to put 10 euros into your account, but now they'll stay there until you use them up. So if you only talk for your 120 "free" days, and only to free numbers, you'll have free voip for as long as the company will be around, it seems.

    hmm... haven't tried it yet but I think it will be similar to the voipcheap account. Did you already try or do you have the possibility to install this software on a windows machine?

    If so you'll probably get all the details off, that you need for ekiga, after you've installed it.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Ekiga with voipcheap account

    voipdiscount seems to be the same exact deal as voipcheap is it not the same company?

    I went though the whole process of downloading and installing voipcheap on a xp machine and then setting up the account in Ekiga.

    After that I dialed a few numbers (including my own landline) I hear a ringing in Ekiga but no ring on the landline itself. So I'm not sure why its not working.

    Then I went into the viopcheap home page and tried buying some credit (because I thought that maybe its not giving me the free minutes because I had no real credit), but couldn't because they only have somekind of UK payment systems (no paypal etc.)

    Is this really worth the bother?


    Aside for that can someone tell me
    1.how ekiga works with skype ?
    2. Can Ekiga run mutipule accounts at the same time like Pidgin?
    3. And what about buddy lists (where) do they show?
    4. What about Ekiga.net itself does it have voip to phone and how much does it cost?

    BTW - I sent a test SMS via voipcheap site (without any money in the account, so it was free). I work very nicely, Anyone know how many free SMS you can send via there site? Is it a daily quota? Is there a way to send sms via ekiga? And what about sending out lists? I saw something about a hack for sending out lists via icq.

    Thanks,
