I'm totally new at VOIP. I thought I would test the technology by downloading X-Lite from the Free World Dialup site. I got everything configured, but I'm having mixed results getting things working. I can sometimes get the test calls (to the 613 number) to work, but not very often. When I schedule a call using the FWD site, the incoming call does not arrive.
My computer is located behind a Linksys router. Do I have to change the configuration in the router to forward any special ports (I thought SIP was suppose to make things work thru NAT)???
If I do have to forward ports, how do I handle the situation where I have multiple computer users on my LAN who want to use VOIP?
