    Hi, all

    As a technical note (since somebody asked about this):
    of course, gateway is physically limited to a number of Skype ports, depending by machine's capabilities, mainly memory and CPU. But, nothing can stop to install MANY gateways, on different machines.
    Therefore, as an example,
    - PSTN lines 10000-10004 connected to gateway on machine1
    - PSTN lines 10005-10009 connected to gateway on machine2
    - PSTN lines 10010-10014 connected to gateway on machine3
    ... Like distributed computing 8)

    If all gateways are configured without "master", such configuration acts like being on the same machine.
    Using "master" on some gateways allows extending functionality and such configuration is much flexible than the "one-gateway" one.
    However, as in the case of a single gateway, you should be careful when using the same Skype account.
