Anybody knows the VoIP protocol that freecall.com uses?


Hello, Folk!
I am subscribed to FreeCall.Com VoIP services:

http://www.freecall.com/

and I wanna use this operator, but they don't offer linux client on his website.
I tried the Windows installer with wine, but it doesn't finish installation. I am thinkg about a virtual machine with VirtualBox, but it is a bit awkward.
Maybe there is any generic VoIP client program for Linux that works with several protocols, including the (unknown for me) one that uses FreeCall.Com. Maybe anybody knows what this protocol is, so I can research for a compatible linux client?
I have found no info at his site.

I want to connect with FreeCall.Com because they offer me free international calls, and I only have to pay mobile destinated calls.

Thanks a lot!

According to this page, sip devices can work with Freecall: http://www.freecall.com/sip

Ekiga is a Linux sip client. It might fill the bill.

I've used it. It's kind of involved to set up, because you have to poke the appropriate holes in your firewall and your router, but, once it's set up, it works very well.

Hey, it is true! Ekiga works OK... or so it seems until now. And it has not been so difficult to configure: even port forwarding was not needed.
But the important thing is the fact that SIP standard programs do work with FreeCall. I did not see that info page.

Thanks a lot, frankbell.
