Im trying to configure my Lucid 10.04.03 in order to work with Sip phones;
Actually, Ekiga and Jitsi* works fine, except for the call transfer/forward, that is very important for me.
With Ekiga, i press first H to hole, then T to transfer, then the number of a my colleague, but nothings happen.
With Jitsi, i get an "not implemented" error, lose the call and keep the sip account busy for about 30 seconds (strange thing is that jitsi should implement the transfer in the last stable version, but i tryed both the nighly and the stable)
Twinkle, Linphone, QuteCom; I've tryed them all but noone works with transfer/forward.
p.s: I'll love to get jitsi work becose it support even gtalk/jabber, so i can have 1 app to all my contacs.
UPDATE From the Twinkle manual:
When you want to transfer a standing call to another party you press the Xfer button. This will popup a dialog box from which you can choose what kind of call transfer you want.
Blind call transfer Transfer with consultation Transfer to other line
Call transfer will only work if your SIP provider and/or the remote party supports the proper SIP extensions.
this could be the reason why my xfer button is disabled, but my colleagues can transfer call without problem, they're using X-Lite on MacOsx, so i guess my sip does support call transfer...
