SIP Softphone for Windows

I just installed Blink. You can get Windows/Linux Help here.

I'm struggling a bit right now. I'm unable to call my PC except immediately after I force it to re-register. Blink seems to require a STUN server to traverse the firewall at my office. There's no way to actually specify a stun server. Instead, it queries my freeswitch server for a SRV record and that SRV record is supposed to point it to a STUN server.

So, while Blink may be harder to use than some, it's forcing me to set up my freeswitch server right. I've added and port 3478 to point to At some point, I intend to run my own stun server.

I'm learning a lot from the logs that Blink produces.

  • Linux: ~/.blink/logs/config
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Blink\
  • Windows Vista and 7: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Blink\

After I added SRV records for my freeswitch server, Blink seems to be accepting calls well.

  • _sip._tcp 10 5 5060
  • _sip._udp 10 5 5060
  • _stun._tcp 10 5 3478
  • _stun._udp 10 5 3478


Trying to get this to work from fs_cli. Not working with Blink for some reason, but freeswitch claims it sent it.
