This code has been tested in our lab and in the labs of our community members all over the world. The Voice over IP community needs fresh ideas and new features. The ball is in your court.
The first thing that we suggest you do is go to our community web site , http://www.vovida.org, read through the site’s resources, and sign up for the mailing lists. These lists give you access to the developers, and even though they may not be able to offer individual support like a help desk, they can point you toward information that may help you achieve more success with your system.
