Enable port forwarding manually
You have come to this page because Ekiga did not manage to configure your network settings automatically. You can still use Ekiga, but you need to configure your network settings manually. We provide instructions for this here.
Ports that are used by Ekiga
Your router (often it is part of the ADSL/Broadband modem, or access point) needs to be configured to forward the following ports to your computer.
You can find detailed instructions on how to enable port forwarding for your router at portforward.com. When you visit the website, click the link to Routers, and find your router model. Use the following ports when performing the instructions.
|SIP||5000 to 5100||UDP||SIP signalling, listen port: 5060|
|STUN||3478 to 3479||UDP||Outgoing traffic to the STUN server|
|H323||1720||TCP||H323 listen port|
Once you have configured your router, restart Ekiga. It's done. It should work now.
