I trying to get Bill some help in configuring his system for echolink so we
can have his as a guest on the net, but he is having some problems with
getting it to run on his system. Can anyone help him out? Refer to our past
emails below. 

Dave, AA4KN

Looks like I'll need some help.  Downloaded Echolink
and I get the "Cannot connect - timed out" message. 
Checked the Help section and it mentions the need to
configure a Static IP address and port forwarding.  To
get the static address, you need to find out the DNS
server address, which apparently requires a call to my
ISP.  But they are closed for the evening. 

If there's any way to do this without calling the ISP,
please let me know.  If someone can walk me through
it, my phone is 954 475 9801.
