  1. The problem is always the same when somebody tells you how to do something in Linux, is the whole story is not revealed and so it doesn't work when you try it. You can't use like you say-what have you missed out telling us? I've written and e-mailed, and they don't want to know. I think they know it can't be done. When you click on "Linux for internet calls" on their website, they will send you down a path of deception, only resulting in you giving them money to make calls from your mobile or landline. Try it.
