I am in the SAIF zone and all Voip was down until today. I just noticed that Skype is back a short while back in the SAIF zone. I live in Dubai and everything Voip has been dead. As of this morning Skype wasn't working in Dubai, but I will check in a few hours.

guys and gals

there has to be technical solution of getting around this problem

Basically I have been reading that we need to create a VPN using a service like Hotspot VPN

Basically - its requires creating a tunnel and then routing all Internet access through this

Problem with this - unless you have a server at home - how do you route your Vonage connection using Ethernet - through your computer that also shares an ethernet connection?

One way I have been told to get a router that supports PPTP client - therefore - the router it self form the secure connection rather than the computer

I am just checking my router and how to do this. I will try it later today and see if it works. I have feeling this is more complicated that it sounds - lets see

I know this is technical - just spend this morning reading on it

cheers

Hi,

The problem with VPN and Vonage is that is significatnly reduces the quality of the call due to the added encryption.

Besides - this forum is probably not the best place to discuss solutions as the Etisilat spies will be onto it before you can blink. Please PM me if you wish to discuss the technicalities - I think there are a few ways round it.

Jumanji - I tried to post something on the Gulf News link you sent
http://www.gulfnews.com/nation/Technology/10060697.html
but once I said submit, I got a TCP error - similar to the blocked TCP error that one gets from Skype. I think Etisalat has become so desperate that they cannot handle the negative feedback being published online.
I have been trying it for a while now - same error. No profanity or anything in my reply - still its not going through....

hey srmillar, i woke up this morning thinking of doing the same thing! I'm glad to notice you've set up a petition, i'm gonna go ahead and sign it right now.. My morning brainstorm session also included setting up a dedicated site for the cause (instead of relying on this thread that's now 20+ pages long), if this thing doesn't resolve in the very near future, lemme know, maybe we can set up a basic site. It occurred to me that of all those people disturbed by the blocking of Voip services, only a small percentage has reached this site, and an even smaller percentage actually bothers to post. There must be hundreds of people out there, and if we target them precisely, maybe we get the ball rolling on a public protest Wink haha ok now i'm getting carried away, my intent is not to begin a riot with a stoning of the etisalat building, but we should definetly be able to exercise an option of expressing ourselves using appropriate diplomatic channels Evil or Very Mad
