|This site is interesting ; https://sip-communicator.dev.java.net/
It runs under eCS (OS2) with java 1.4.2.
And voipbuster works somehow.
Still the program is far from finished yet, it does login on a voipbuster account and it can call, but no voice (yet)
The SIP-codec(s) are not there yet it seems.
Anyway, its open source and lets hope they don't go to java 1.5 or higher
If you want to test it what it can do now, then get the latest build here;
And you need a voipbuster account, unfortunately this can only be done in wonXP untill now, so you need at least one time a winXP machine.
And get an account .. remember your login name and passport.. of course
Now run the downloaded sip-communicator, make sure you are in Java 1.4.x
now it looks like this more or less ;
Save it now as run.cmd, and then just run it.. type run
Of course buying a SIP ATA (hardware) and connect a normal phone to it is another option.. for about 50-60 euro you get a SIP ATA..
Putting 10 euro in voipbuster will give you 5 hours of free calls every week for 120 days to most countries.
I don't think there is a cheaper way of calling .. (yet)
Just be patient and see where this program is going to.. when it does finish would be great !!!
