Hi Arun,
            Did you try an 'echo' call test ? I do not know whether
ekiga.net provides such a test.
 Did you configure the codecs ? Also, you can narrow down to whether its an
application or n/w level problem by running tcpdump/wireshark to check
whether the rtp stream is actually reaching your machine.

My 2 cents...
