Problems with Ekiga and a D-Link DSL-302G home router

I recently troubleshot a problem with Ekiga 3.2.7 running on Ubuntu 10.10 x86. The application could not successfully make a test call with full two way audio; audio from the far end was not successfully received.

Looking back through the Ekiga list archives revealed at least one other user with similar problems on this model of router:

The solution in my case was to simply assign the host problem system a fixed IP address, and set up a port forwarding rule in the router thusly:

Ekiga Port fowarding rule in the D-Link DSL-302G

Test calls could then be made okay.
