SippySkype SIP-to-Skype Gateway

Last month I wrote about my strong disagreements with a guest blog post on Skype Journal that was titled "A SIP/Skype Gateway Is NOT In The Forecast". I disagreed with the premise that a SIP/Skype gateway isn't in the forecast. Well, Skype Inc. may not care about offering a SIP-to-Skype gateway, but that doesn't mean VoIP enthusiasts are going to sit around and not build their own SIP-to-Skype gateways! I've blogged on a few occasions where I discussed the desire for Skype users to have SIP connectivity and various home-brewed solutions.

Well, we can add another SIP-to-Skype gateway solution to the mix. I just discovered SippySkype today, which is an open source & free SIP-to-Skype gateway.

Check out the features:
  • SippySkype is Java software that allows you to make and receive Skype calls from your SIP/VoIP adapter. Basically a Skype/SIP Bridge/Gateway/Proxy
  • Call Skype Users using speed dial or use Skype out.
  • SIP to Skype authentication/denial mappings via SIP caller ID and IP blocks - 1.1 or higher
  • Skype to SIP authentication/denial mappings via incoming Skype User ID - 1.1 or higher
  • Support RFC2833 touchtone decoding (DTMF) - 2.0beta or higher
  • Could be used as an endpoint with Asterisk
  • Auto play pre-recorded file(s) to SIP callers - 2.0beta or higher
  • Incoming SIP Pin number authentication and dialing - 2.0beta or higher
  • Open Source - You can modify/fix it if you like.
  • It's free
System Requirements:
  • Skype Client
  • Working Java 1.6.0 or better runtime
  • mjsip/mjua 1.6 - Use those included with SippySkype as some bugs have been fixed.
  • Skype4Java 1.0 - Unmodified
  • SIP/VOIP adapter such as a spa-3102 to make and receive Skype calls or register with a provider or Asterisk.
  • Should work where Skype4Java works (windows/linux/osx). (I'm using it on Windows XP)
