I have bring up to 60 Skypiax channels, using 20 skype accounts, i.e. each
skype account logged in three times. But only 20 of them were able to make
call to skype echo test service, others got NO ANSWER. I am not sure of why
this happened but may be skype echo service allows only one call per skype
account regardless of how may instances are using this one account. Has
anyone tried this with different results?

Thank you.
