Was "Avoice" intentional? Clearwire are notorious for blocking VoIP :)
I recently had some fun with a Clearwire rep after a friend of mine
couldn't initiate file transfers with me using various protocols. I
visited him with the intention of finding whatever config frontend they
provided and forwarding a few ports.
I'm still not sure if the clearwire box runs a telnet or http service,
but I couldn't get the information out of the guy on the phone. He
asserted that they don't close any ports at all. When I explained my
difficulty with transferring files he started talking about "filtering".
"Sounds like blocking to me, mate..." - essentially, you can't serve
Skip to the end - he's cancelling his subscription and I'm telling
everyone who asks me about broadbeans to avoid clearwire like the plague :)
