It may be just me, But I can never get MySql to do what I want it to
do, even simple SQL does not seam to work consistently.

Well I've tried phoning an sip address on the machine from my ekiga
account and it will not go through unless I register with my own

clue I've got as to why it does not work was the missing srv record on
then DNS.
