  • Skype for SIP

    Anyone successfully gotten this working? I am attempting to do so now, but there is a distinct lack of any documentation from Skype and ShoreTel.

    I have begun piecing together the mystery.
    So far I have ascertained that you need to sign up for a business account with Skype and subscribe to their SIP trunk services. They charge for this even though it is beta. This will give you a telephone number that you can dial in and out with.
    Next you need an Ingate SIPerator on your ShoreTel system.
    That's as far as I got.
    I am guessing that Ingate will produce some firmware to make an easy recipe for configuring Skype, but in the mean time you will need to use a generic set up and fill in the boxes as best you can.

      I've got a SIPerator, a business account with a SIP profile containing 3 lines, and an external phone number. I suppose I will attempt to configure this information into the SIPerator now. I tried directly from ShoreTel already, but I never expected that to work. I'll let you know how it goes.

        Vosky has all the information you need VoSKY - Your Ultimate Gateway to Skype i talked to a re-seller and he told me all about it. Its pretty cool.

          We have a Vosky unit here in Barbardos connected to our Shortel system and it works extremely well.

          I was under the impression that the Skype solution would work without the siparator however. But I really don't have that much information on it.

            The Skype for Sip I'm talking about is the official beta offered directly by Skype: Skype for SIP Open Beta - Product Overview

            We now have this working in our office. It does indeed require a SIPerator.

              We installed this last November for a client. Let us know if you need any assistance.

                What about using Vosky instead of the siperator? Anyone have luck doing that?

                  Does this allow you to dial out to another skype number directly from your handset? Is it considered skype to skype (FREE) ?

                    Yes, the VoSKY appliance as well as Skype for SIP both turn your ShoreTel system into one big Skype client, so you can make Skyte-to-Skype calls. The trick is it acts as ONE Skype client, so everyone shares the same dial-in number.

                      DID /DDI Numbers Skype

                      Hi all: Does anyone know if Skype can give you DID / DDI numbers on a phone number when supplied. I dont see it in the Skype SIP for Business Control Panel.

                        I got my Skype for SIP working a bit.

                        Using Ingate Firewall 1190
                        I can place a call into the ShoreTel and it rings, I can answer but there is one way audio. Skype can hear ShoreTel but ShoreTel can't hear Skype.
                        I have been pouring over the Ingate config but nothing is jumping out at me.
                        I plan to connect Wireshark to the internal interface connecting to the Ingate to examine some RTP packets next week and see if there are any.
                        Any suggestions meanwhile will save me a drive

                          Can;t help you directly without seeing the configuration, but I can tell you this: The InGate will allow you to collect a packet capture as part of their debug log--at least the one I have does. Perhaps this can save you a drive.

                            Yes it does, but it seems to filter out the RTP traffic (presumably to save on storage). The SIP messages look OK, I want to check the source and destination addresses in the RTP stream.

                              I got it working without any VOSKEY device. However, inbound calls never seem to get to the phones. they seem to get lost.
