i hav been using voip to call uk & us since a few months and was surprised how simple it was and how cheap!!!but since about a week ago i am unable to connect to any decent voip service ,in a straightforward manner, that is. otherwise i have now devised a method to be able to connect thru a number of proxy services. but the point of my posting this is that if voip 'has' now been legalized in India , (or so i heard or read in the papers) then why is mtnl still blocking port number 5060 which is essential for voip.if anybody has any info on this front then i would like to hear it . also i would like to know of any way by which i can somehow put in the mtnl customer care guy/auntie's head what a port is in the first place :huh: and mods how about a forum on voip in india??... there are a lot of people now who are using this technology. and anyways if you can have a forum about iptv which for me is yet to b launched in india( i booked in November, no word from mtnl yet.) then we can surely hav a forum on voip which is in use by many.i will be happy to contribute my bit by telling a few ways to call uk or us pstn phones for free from india.
