With respect, this is a large statement from the co-founder and a fellow
open-source developer on the OpenH323/Opal project but this will probably
change once we have implemented H460.18/19... :)
To me is was rather disturbing to sit in a room full of some of the
greatest minds in the VoIP open source development community at a recent
conference in Germany and be the only one (i know of) not using SKYPE to
keep in contact with colleagues and home.
Sorry, Henry Sinnreich has a point. Maybe we all should just give up, go
flip burgers and use SKYPE.
However workable solutions for NAT and security for standard based
protocols are out there which only goes to prove "VoIP does not equal SKYPE"
