cannot register my vbuzzer account with ekiga software

Asked by selma

i have an account with vbuzzer that i would like to use with ekiga, but when i start it up i get message 'Registration failed: Forbidden'. i used ekiga for my voipBuster account before without any problems, and i can still register it with the software.
does anybody have any idea what could be wrong

thanks in advance

in my account settings i'm using:

in preferences/protocols:
Network Settings/ NAT= STUN
Network Settings/STUN Server=
SIP Settings/Outbound proxy =
H.323 settings/Default gateway =

I do not know this provider.

Are you using a sip proxy in general prefs? In this case try to disable it.

From their forums:

If you want to use your existing vBuzzer/BuzzMe account(s) with an Ekiga client under Linux, settings are:
Edit -> Preferences
Protocols -> Network Settings -> NAT traversal = STUN
Protocols -> Network Settings -> STUN server =
Protocols -> H.323 settings -> Default gateway =
Protocols -> SIP settings -> Outbound proxy =
Devices -> Audio devices (needs to be set to whichever device you want to use)

Edit -> Accounts
Add an account entry with
Account name: (whatever...)
User: (your vBuzzer username)
Password: (your vBuzzer password)
Authentication login: (your vBuzzer username) ...

If you are still having issues with Ekiga, maybe try out Twinkle phone, it's available in the repositories. System>Admin>Synaptic Package Manager
or in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install twinkle

That way we can determine that the account/system is working.

Best Regards,

Can you help with this problem?
