Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been trying to make PC - Phone calls on Linux. I found a facility that I thought would work. What I want to do is make on my Linux computer telephone calls to PSTN phones. Of course I have to pay for the phone calls but they are far cheaper than phone calls here in Bahrain.
Of course it is easy to do on Windows using a provider such as Net2phone, Dialpad, or Iconnecthere. After some research I found a software company thekompany.com that sells a package tkPhone (different from tkphone on sf.net) for $9.95. It has an arrangement that with iconnecthere.
I have an account with iconnecthere and I can make telephone calls with them on Windows. However when I make calls using tkPhone I can get a connection but the line at the other end hears nothing. I hear a lot of static and nothing else. The iconnecthere call log shows that the line has connected.
I have probably not configured tkPhone properly but the documentation with tkPhone is not good at all.
Has anyone managed to get tkPhone up and running under Linux? What are the parameters set, in particular the Stun server and the Sip user agent.
I would appreciate any opinions on what to do. Many thanks
