I am Sathi from India.
I have implemented this in my place by providing a connectionn to 100 to 150
I provide a Local ip address and all will be terminate in a linux box in my
office which is then nated to public ip.
Everything looks fine except MSN voice chat , NETMEETING voice and video and
some other tools used for phone2pc and pc2phone.
