It is very unlikely that voipwise offers per-user-addressbooks via LDAP, so this feature will not work. If they do, ask them for parameters.

Actually, I don't know how to get my address book from voipwise into ekiga. Is it possible at all?

You need to ask them if their address book use the "LDAP" technology (this a well know standard), if so, ask them for parameters. But it is indeed unlikely. Beside ekiga 3.2.x has a much better support of "LDAP".

Best regards,

Can you help with this problem?
