If you can find a SIP client for Linux, then you can use the details from your broadband talk configuration file.
If you find a suitable client, then I can provide more information. You do not use your normal Softphone login details.
You could try Ekiga: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ekiga
I installed Ekiga, it was painless! Can you help with the configuration details please?
Yes, you will have to follow the instructions on the following page to extract the required information from you BBT configuration file.
It is really for an Andriod phone, but you should be able to use it on your program.
Let me know how you get on.
I now have the account settings, password, server, etc.. How does one download sipdroid? I went to www.android.com/market and there is no mention of Spidroid, so I went to http://sipdroid.org and that list Sip[droid-2.0.1.apk which I can download but what do I do with it, my Linux PC does not recognise the apk file so I cannot go any further. My mobile app experience is limited to pressing 'download' on my Blackberry!
There is an Edit -> Accounts functionin Ekiga and a facility to add an SIP account which I guess is what I need, however, aligning that with the BT Broadband Talk information is a challenge as it asks for Name, Registrar, User, Authentication User and Password. Any ideas?
Well done - I am now registered! It works too - but I have to find a way to get the computer to hang up the call! Off to look for Ekiga forums, many thanks.
I am really pleased that you have it all sorted. If you can make a note of how you set it all up, I am sure that other Linux users in this community would be interested. I know there are one or two here.
