I have tried to configure my installation of XMeeting 0.4p2 (MacOS 10.5.8) to connect to an ESnet H.323 Gatekeeper and MCU through my home network's firewall. I have it acquiring a public IP address automatically, and I have configured my firewall to allow inbound traffic on ports 1718 and 1719 (per ESnet's support group). I don't know yet whether I have it configured correctly, because I don't appear to get any sort of behaviour...
From the time I start up XMeeting, the little window says "Setup. Please wait..." with the spinning lines. If I put a connection number into the "h323:" window, nothing changes. If I go to the Address Book and use the entry I created for ESnet, nothing changes.
The Inspector window shows "Failed to register" in the H.323 Gatekeeper section. I wasn't provided with a password by ESnet, so I left that field blank in the Account. They did provide me with an E.164 "phone number", but I don't see anywhere in XMeeting Preferences to put that information.
