    All you need to do is give your SIP callers your IP number, obviously it
    helps if that is static, and ask them to call you direct. (e.g. if your IP
    is then they dial #123*45*67*89#)
    If you have dynamic IP then there are DNS schemes allowing your IP to be

    But why bother with any of that if you can register with Sipgate for free
    and get geographical No. for incoming calls to boot ?

    You need a SIP proxy server.

    Because he wants to use his own domain name as part of his SIP address?

  5. Would be useful in the way that he could use a sip proxy hosted at the
    domain rather than anything more substantial.

    1 need a domain, so you need a DNS
    2 SIP phone logging in to a (non)existent proxy
    3 allow port 5060 (or what you told DNS) incoming on the firewall
    4 people can call you at [email protected] or [email protected]

    There is no difference between name and a number, DNS is the glue between
    Useful, if you want to make phonecalls without a provider (free, no provider
    bugs and errors and records, ...).

    4 go to their website pay 10 euro,
    5 try you downloaded PC phone,
    6 on their website read the sip configuration
    7 enter the configuration into your ATA box.
    8 make a call using 0049xxxxx prefixes

    Right, but as I said before, you can do that with just IP numbers.
