Introduction[edit]

To be on the hackerspace signal show there is three ways calling in:

  • To be in the studio at Rev-space.
  • To use skype and to start a voice conversation with one of the conference hosts.
  • Or the host calls your personal phone. (for technically impared or disconnected users)

To save money, freedom and bandwidth it may be usefull to connect to the hackerspace signal conference using a voice over IP client.

Installation[edit]

So lets try this VoIP thing. We are going to use a protocoll called IAX2. Its a great protocoll beacuse you dont have to open any NAT ports in your router. We want to use the application called kiax2. Point your web browser.
