Thanks for the replies guys,
Well on checking I found SipGate to be the only account without the proxy
enabled so I enabled it and...
..it still didn't work!
Made a VPN connection to my own network and Sipgate worked.
Dropped back to the Cloud and it didn't.
Turned off Wi-Fi and using 3G it worked.
Turned on wi-fi using The Cloud and it didn't.
Seems pretty conclusive to me that The Cloud will not carry SipGate traffic
or SipGate has a problem with The Cloud!
Oh well never mind...not life-threatening.
And certainly not as important as my not being able to dial into my Mobotix
CCTV cameras and always ending up with the busy/engaged tone.
They can dial out with no problems but for some reason they will not answer
an incoming call - all the caller hears is the busy/engaged tone.
I would love to sort that one out...
Thanks & kind regards,

On roaming clients I strongly recommend the use of an outbound proxy.
