Connecting via SIP
SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol and is basically a way to
make free voice calls over the Internet (VoIP). It's like Skype, with
the main difference being that it is an open standard. To begin, get a
Blink (Mac OS X):
Linphone (Linux, iPhone, Android):
You must make sure that you are not connected to any SIP providers to
make the call. Ekiga will set you up with a SIP provider if you let it,
just skip past this registration step if you can. To make sure you are
not connected to any SIP providers in Ekiga, click Edit->Accounts. There
should be no accounts listed. If there are accounts, the checkboxes for
all accounts should be blank.
To test to see if you can connect to the WebID SIP-based telecon, call
this SIP address:
webid at voip.digitalbazaar.com
You should hear somebody say "Welcome to the WebID Working Group. This
is a public working group...".
You may test connecting to the telecon via SIP at any point between now
and the call on Tuesday.
