Ekiga is a nice softphone which I use under Ubuntu to test Asterisk stuff. But at home it never registered with an outside asterisk and I had weird missing audio problems with some services. With a lot of tcpdump use I found that the 169.254 addresses were used as source address for the SIP packets (and probably as destination for the missing audio packets). In the setup I selected the right interface for the outgoing connections and suddenly stuff works. This is something where I expect software like ekiga to do the right thing. You can't reach a non-169.254 address with that address as source, just use the normal routing tables.
