Tesco Internet phone
I’ve been trying to set up my Tesco Internet phone also known as the Freshtel FT-102 VoIP USB Phone in Ubuntu 8.10, my distro of choice at the moment, and although I can install the Tesco software using Wine and use the self test, when I receive an incoming call it closes the connection almost instantly and complains about the sound device. Now that’s OK after all i’m going through a complicated audio chain there i’m guessing by using Wine so I set up Ekiga. Now that accepts my details, lets me call a couple of SIP test sites (sip:firstname.lastname@example.org or sip:email@example.com) but won’t accept my Tesco account settings, it says “Registration failed, Bad request” and a quick google only brought up one related item, suggesting opening up certain ports on the router. Now I don’t mind doing that but would I be able to use Ekiga at all if that was the case, any ideas anyone?
I found the name of the Tesco Internet phone by the way, by typing “lsusb” in a console/terminal.
If you need the settings for the Tesco Internet phone for using with other software (Like Ekiga) I found all the settings at Broadbandbuyer.com. Thanks.
