[asterisk-users] switching from SIP to Skype..or not

I'm testing Asterisk at home, crummy connection.  Skype works fine for 
me, but every SIP client, even without using Asterisk, fails to connect.  
That's ok.

Is swapping out SIP for Skype a big deal?  

Heh, well, I guess it's dead:


If I have a really bad connection, can I "downgrade" SIP somehow?  I 
don't really need to use to make voice calls.  Or, more specifically, 
quality, echo, distortion aren't relevant.  Just SIP to SIP "hello".

When I connect to any SIP provider, ekiga, etc, without using Asterisk, I 
get "too many hops" errors.  While I have another computer on the LAN I 
can connect to, it's not quite the same.

Any thoughts?
