Cannot even get the software

OK, so I am very new to VoIP. I have registered and activated with PlusNet and have tried to get the software as advised. I cannot download the software, page displays Internet Explorer cannot display this page  and windows diagnostics says
'www.sjphone.org' is not set up to establish a connection on port
'World Wide Web service (HTTP)' with this computer
Not a good start, is there any hope for me ?  Maybe I should be put down

Yup, thats where I get the message from. The download link is  http://www.sjphone.org/softphone/SJphone-1.65.2637.exe which does not work. Just thought. I am using Vista, is that significant?

I am having the same problem.  Tried the above solution but it is simply links back to http://www.sjphone.org/softphone/SJphone-289a.exe

Re: Cannot even get the software

I believe there are some problem with SjPhone 1.65 and Vista. You will probably be advised to try and get 1.60 as that seems to work better with Vista ( although that download link seems broken as well ).
If you fail to get SjPhone you might try this http://www.nch.com.au/talk/ , the Basic edition is free and although I've not tried it with Vista ( it claims to be compatible ) I have had it working with PlusNet on XP and was pretty impressed.

That looks interesting. I'm short of time to do any experimenting at the moment, but I'd be very interested to hear of anyone's experience with either the softphone or the soft PBX.
