I'm looking for some freewares options for VoIP for local networks. Can you give me some suggestions? I'm looking for something like Skype, but not for the internet, I need it for my local network.

Thanks in advance for the help

X-Lite ( is a very good SIP softphone.  You will need to set up a local SIP proxy server though - a free one with lots of features is SIP Express Router (

Alternatively, you might want to look at TeamSpeak -

Hope that this helps.
