make sipdiscount -> skype call with asterisk

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by Ben Fitzgerald, Feb 28, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I recently had a friend try to call me using skype, which I don't have.
    I know his email address and his skype name.

    I have asterisk pbx on debian with outbound calls to sipdiscount.

    Is there a way I can call his skype account? Perhaps I first need to know
    skype's proxy info?

    I'm new to asterisk and ignorant of skype so apologies if this is an
    easy one.

    thanks,

    Ben.

    The last I heard, Skype didn't talk SIP and asterisk didn't talk Skype,
    so you probably cannot do it directly - you'd have to call his
    "skype-in" number or somesuch - i.e. not free.
