The question was whether special provision is needed for firewalls and routers, for making outbound calls.  As far as I can tell, the answer is an unequivocal NO.

500@xxxxxxxxx, 441@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, and several echo sites that are listed on the Ekiga wiki.  No, sorry, I did not call 520, because I didn't know STUN was working.  I didn't think I could receive incoming calls.  Ekiga is no longer installed, so I can't test it.

No.  Version 3.2.6 worked perfectly in that condition.
