No Skype is a propietry system and unlike virtually all other VoIP providers they do no peer with anyone else.
I believe they are looking into providing a SIP gateway which would enable this functionality.

Skype does not support SIP so it cannot dial an IP address.
Besides you never usually dial an IP address anyway. Normally you dial an access code to connect to the voip provider the other person is using followed by their account number.

Skype can only dial other skype users or if you pay for skypeout regular telephone numbers.

If you want to talk to people on other VoIP networks you will have to sign up with a provider which offers a standard SIP account.

This means that If we are able to get an SIP account we are able to dial the SIP gateway at remote site and reaches to our peer who is on SIP network.

is it possible ?

Yes you might aswell get one of the free accounts at sipgate. When you want to call them run the voip software client and just dial their number.

If you use a different voip voip provider you would first dial an access code to get onto the sipgate network (like you would have to dial an area code when calling someone in another part of the country when using a normal phone) followed by their number.
