| || || | Gigaset "server not available" problem
Pet @ www.gymratz.co.uk ¬)
This one has got me confused.
Gigaset at home has been working just fine for a few years. Been on FTTC
via Zen for about a year with no problems, then about Sunday/Monday I
got a call at work from Debs mobile saying the phones weren't working.
Hmmm. Logged on to the box over VPN and checked all settings. All seemed
fine well they should have been as I hadn't touched anything.

| || || | Femtocell incoming calls - Xpost
David WE Roberts
I am starting the process to try and get a femtocell from 3 because the
voice connection from my house is poor and keeps breaking up.
I am assuming that this runs VOIP to a 3 switch somewhere then gets rolled
over into the main network.
I was wondering if/how it handled incoming calls.
Presumably it will be something like Skype, which presumably must keep a
connection up to the server at...

| || || | sipgate: Call forwarding - based in CLID
I'm a new user to sipgate, and like the Call forwarding very much (a
neat feature) so that you can select to direct incoming calls into
voicemail or onto a telno you specify.
I'd quite like to divert based in incoming CLID e.g. any incoming call
with a CLID of International goes into voicemail, and anything else gets
forwarded on to a selected number. It doesn't look like there's a way

I'm about to buy a Zycoo ZX20 mini IP PBX for use in my apartment (yes, I know it's overkill, but I'm sick of telemarketing calls). According to the manual it looks astonishing for the price. Has anybody out there used one? I'm doing this as an alternative to sticking a 1xFXO/1xFXS card in my Linux host at home and manually configuring Asterisk. Are there any pitfalls?

| || || | Has anyone got the Sipgate Android App working on Vodafone?
Trust No One®
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 on Vodafone. I've recently installed the Sipgate
android app but have had absolutely no joy with either making or receiving
calls on 3g. The app connects to Sipgate but does precious little else.
I'm on one of the more expensive contracts but TBH I'm not sure whether VOIP
is allowed/blocked or not. It would be useful if I could use this app as I
barely average 20mb...

| || || | How do ISPs and/or 3-G services block VOIP, is it by port number?
As per the subject, how do ISPs and/or 3-G internet providers block
VOIP (if they do)? If it's blocked by stopping traffic on specific
ports one can presumably bypass the block by using different port
numbers, however if they actually look at packets to see what's in
them this wouldn't work.
I want to use VOIP on an orange.fr 3G connection, the conditions of
use explicitly say that you *can*...

I have all my outgoing except for "800" and "911" (free long

provider via a LinkSys SPA3102 gateway.
It had been working 100% a-ok until a couple of months ago.
Then, occasionally, we would dial a long distance number and it
would just ring forever or would return "Busy".
Upon investigation, it turned out that the number was not busy
