[OpenSIPS-Users] OpenSIPS + Ekiga + Linphone: Could not send message: Forbidden

Your capture has two packets, a MESSAGE from Ekiga to Opensips, and a 407
Proxy Auth Required reply from Opensips to Ekiga.  When Ekiga tells
you "NOTICE: Could not send message: Unauthorised", it's correct given the
capture, but the real question is why Ekiga didn't try to use
authentication at that point.  Instead it just stopped and showed the error.

I can't speak any more to Ekiga; I've never tried it.  If you're looking
for other options, one may be Blink[1].  I've used it on Mac OSX with a lot
of success.  I've found its mailing list[2] to be active with prompt
responses from the developers.
