into a DSL modem, or an Android tablet, the calls go through even though I am
behind a router.
Other times when we both are behind a router, it just does not work. But it
also seems that the calls in the same scenarios worked under Jitsi (which I
can't stand, grrr!), so there may be still something that could be done in
