How to use PC instead of HAG to make VoIP Calls

    My telephony provider uses ethernet cabling and an HomeAreaGateway to give
    me telephony service.

    I've managed to enter to enter in the HAG config page and take all the
    needed data to make a call. (all the H323 config I mean)

    In fact, using OpenPhone I can even manage to connect to my Gatekeeper using
    my account.. the problem is, when I need to make a call, OpenPhone promts me
    for an IP address and a Gateway... but i need to put in it a standard
    telephone number!

    How can I do? I want to (legally) use my pc as a telephone and answering
    machne instead of using the standard telephone set... it is possible
    according to you?

    many many thanks

    Code Version

    Hw Version: 1.2
    Loader Version: 2.4
    Application Version: 2.8.4


    This HAG is a simple device: It has an
    Ethernet IN, an Ethernet Out (it's kind of a passthru device, even if it got
    an IP address of its own) and an RJ11 standard phone jack.
    I just want to get rid of this HAG, give my PC it's IP address, and use my
    pc to make and receive calls. Do you think it is possible? And afaik,
    OpenPhone doesn't allow to make calls to other than IP addresses... do there
    is some other software?

    Again, MANY thanks to everyone!
