Ekiga: network settings error

OS: Fedora 10
Ekiga: 3.0.2

Starting up Ekiga, I immediately get the following error mesage: "Ekiga did not manage to configure your network settings automatically. You can still use it, but you need to configure your network settings manually.

Please see http://wiki.ekiga.org/index.php/Enab...rding_manually for instructions"

At first I didn't really thought of it as a problem; simply forward the necessary ports from router to node (and back) and that should do it... Unfortunately it didnt. So I configured iptables to be sure that the necessary ports are really accessible.
But still I get this error message.

The ekiga-wiki hasn't got the solution for my problem, so I thought it could be Fedora-related. Anyone with the same problem, or with *the* solution?

Two weeks later now... (Unfortunately no replies...)
First I tried to 'fix' the problem by upgrading to Fedora 11. Unfortunately no succes.
But I found the 'bug'. It hasn't anything to do with Fedora, but with my modem/router... (Speedtouch 716W). Somehow it can't handle two SIP-accounts. That's too bad...
At least the problem is not Fedora's.

Thanks anyway for reading/thinking.

Smile Solved!

Well, a month has passed... After reinstalling the whole desktop (just because I wanted to have a clean start after the summerbreak) I thought of taking up the Ekiga-problem again.
I just couldn't believe that my modem/router would give all the problems, so I started all over again.
And guess what? I found a solution!

The whole thing had to do with a bad connection with the stun-server. That caused the error message.
To solve it, open gconf-editor and click the tickbox in apps->ekiga->general->nat->disable-stun.
Sound, playback and video are all working.
