I'm using Ekiga for SIP connections but when I dial I get the error "Ekiga is already running".

This is more of an Ekiga or general system question than a TBDialOut one and is probably to do with how your protocol handlers are configured.

The issue may be whether you call Ekiga with the -c option. If you configure Ekiga to handle SIP URLs then you should pass the URL as an argument to the -c option. For Linux you will need a configuration entry like

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/sip/command '/path/to/ekiga -c %s' --type String

For Windows you need a registry entry like

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\sip\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Application\\ekiga.exe\" \"-c %1\""
ID #1016
