Cheap VOIP calls to India – Resolving Nymgo Issues
There were days when even incoming calls had buried a hole in your pockets, but now things have changed a lot. Now you can make even ISD calls using VOIP technology at drop-dead prices.
One of the major VOIP service provider, which provides cheapest calling rates to India, almost as low as 0.013$, with good sound quality is Nymgo. You can download its Softphone, and call through your pc to any phone in the world.
Nymgo has no doubt cool calling rates, but my worst experinces with it is in getting it functional. After long periods of my struggle with it, I finally came out with winning streak and thought to share the Nymgo configurational issues and their resolutions. Note: Below stuff can be too technical, so please bear with me or leave a comment with your concerns and I’ll try to elaborate more.
Issue 1) Nymgo Network Test fail – usually at NAT
Resolution: If you are behind some firewall (or wireless router) and able to access internet properly but not able to make any calls with nymgo. Check out your router settings and disable inbuilt firewall in it. If even that doesnt works, Set up your machine in router as Default DMZ server and change NAT settings and other router settings as described in the image.
Issue 2) Nymgo Network Test pass – Still not able to make calls
Resolution: When I resolved issue 1, I actually landed in issue 2:) The best solution I found for it is to not to use Nymgo at all. I mean not to use its softphone to make calls, rather use best third-party VOIP softphone – Xlite. Configure its SIP settings for your Nymgo account as follows:
SIP Server Or SIP Proxy Server: ata.nymgo.com
SIP User ID: nymgo username
Authenticate ID: nymgo username
SIP password: nymgo password
SIP Port: 5060
Codec Used: g729
STUN Server: stun.nymgo.com
STUN port: 80
I believe this should solve your other issues related to Nymgo as well, If not leave a comment and I’ll try to fix it.
Note: Author of this post is neither a promoter of Nymgo nor its support executive. Rather I wont even recommend contacting Nymgo Support as these guys sucks. I raised one ticket to them for my issues but never heard a positive response.
I never intended to be a promoter of X-lite but it has turned out that way. Many of my readers have tried X-lite, some do faced issues in configuring it and for you friends, as requested, here comes the much awaited Screenshots of SIP configuration of X-lite:
Open SIP Accounts Settings Menu to add a Nymgo Account

Further specify STUN details under Topology head.
And you’re done 🙂
