We are looking to connect our existing cisco call manager 7.1.5 to Skype connect sip . As a trial we have already created a Skype connect account and purchased a few concurrent sip lines. Can any guru out there please advise step by step to create a sip trunk/ or whatever is required to get this service working?
Any help will be greatly appreciated

If i remember correctly version 7 does not directly connect with skype to sip, you will require a border element (CUBE) to get it to work, i may be thinking of 7.1.3, but i am 90% sure that all version 7 will not connect directly.
