Ekiga "Globally not acceptible" solved
I was getting folowing Ekiga error on some of my computers: "Could not register (Globally not acceptable)".
After checking updating to the latest version, making sure that all login credentials and server information are correct, reading forums and mailing lists I have noticed that this only happens on some computers in some locations.
Then I realized that I don't have same DNS set-up on all machines. So after adding liberal DNS (I am using OpenNIC), issue was solved!
If you are using
openresolv utility (comes pre-installed with Arch and Ubuntu), you will need to edit this file:
Then append following lines (get your nearest OpenNIC servers from this page):
# OpenNIC IPv4 nameservers (US) nameserver 188.8.131.52 nameserver 184.108.40.206
Then, we need to generate new configuration:
sudo resolvconf -u
After this is done, verify changes:
Then open Ekiga, press Ctrl+E for 'Accounts' menu, choose your account and press
Enable to retry your login.
Status should now read "Registered"
