Before getting too deep into debugging, I would check your account name, password, and server. Check to see if the format of the account name is right. For instance should it be your-name or your-name@ekiga.net? Also check to see if you received an email from Ekiga, they might be waiting for you to click a verify link before the account is activated. I don't have an ekiga.net account, so that might be very obvious but worth checking if your not sure.

If your still stumped here's some more stuff to try.
You can gather more debugging information that may lead to some clues about what's wrong by typing:
     binary -d 4
Replace binary with the ekiga binary name, on my system it is ekiga-snapshot. You might also want to save the output to make searching through it easier. So it may be something like this:
     ekiga-snapshot -d 4 2> ~/ekiga_debug.txt

If your running ekiga snapshots, see if there's an update available.

If you redirect the output to a textfile using 2> then you won't see any output on the console. Once the ekiga opens and you see Registration Failed, you can quit out of it and go open your new text file.

There's a lot of info in it and I don't know exactly what you would be looking for. If you were able to connect to the server and you had a wrong username/password you would probably see something like: SIP/2.0 403 Forbidden (Bad auth)

Good luck.
