I'm trying to set up voip between myself (Ubuntu 10.04) and a friend (win Vista).
He uses skype, so I started with skype for linux. After fiddling I found I could have mic or speakers but never both.
So I tried Ekiga Softphone. No problem at my end, but he finds that he can't connect to me, I have to connect to him, and he gets a nasty echo on his mic.
So I tried Skype for Windows on XP through Virtualbox. It crashed every time. Taking it back to version 3 stopped crashing, but no sound.
Back to ekiga. We had problems with connecting. Sometime it would show my contacts but refuse to let me call them and vice versa. I managed to get to hear him and see him, but he couldn't see or hear me. I tried fiddling with the ports to open up VIOP, but we are still having issues.
Anyone get it all to work?
