I think I'm able to connect with Ekiga, at least it reports 
"registered".  Curiously, when I exit Ekiga and switch to SFLphone, it 
isn't able to connect with the exact same parameters; it just says 
"trying" and never resolves.

I'm not able to test outside connectivity because of too many hops:

thufir at doge:~$ 
thufir at doge:~$ sudo sipsak -vv -s sip:thufir at ekiga.net -m "hi"
No SRV record: _sip._tcp.ekiga.net
No SRV record: _sip._udp.ekiga.net

thufir at doge:~$ 

but that's ok.  How can I test, I mean make a voice call, given that I 
only have two computers to work with at the moment?  The server runs 
Asterisk on tleilax, and doge is the client.  Both connect to the same 
router.  the ip address for tleilax is and the ip address for 
doge is (generally; doge uses DHCP).

When I get more pc's, I can maybe have doge call another pc on the 
network, but, for right now, what can I do to test this out?
