Bug Description

I get a 20 s delay when making SIP calls? Other SIP clients don't have a 20 s delay, but they do have other critical bugs that prevent me from using them. I am using Ubuntu 9.04 i386 and the SIP provider is calleasy.com. This problem also existed in Ubuntu 8.10.

I also experience some delays (about 2 s) with Jaunty (fresh install however I kept my previous home directory for the config files). I didn't had this problem with Intrepid (Ekiga v2). I am not sure whether it's my sound program or Ekiga that is responsible for this issue.

Does mean for me to convert the name into an IP address?

Converting the name into an IP did nothing. Does someone have any other ideas?

Paul Weiss (interweiss) wrote :

Sorry, it did work. I was making calls from the call history which still had @sip.poivy.com. When I made a new call, Ekiga used the new IP address. Thanks for all the help everybody.
