Sip does not work at all for the user I'm working with and does not 
work correctly from my computer either.  It works perfectly for me 
with h323.

We got a little further with her this morning.  She is able to 
connect to the video conferencing system and enter the conference 
number with the dialpad.  On my screen I see her name pop up but the 
window is black.  I can hear her but she can't hear or see me.  So 
here are the problems.

- she can't hear me.  Her speakers are working, I can hear her e-mail 

- she can't see me.  When she pulls down the View menu the Remote 
selection is grayed out

so her camera is on and is displaying video.  It just isn't being 

We've verified the correct Audio and Video settings.  The only other 
thing I can think of is firewall issues.  We told the Windows 
firewall to allow Ekiga through.  I haven't looked at other firewalls 
(Google, Yahoo, etc.).

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot are very much appreciated.

conferencing bridge and using the same software (Ekiga 3.2.6 Windows
