You have to install siproxd on a host that has direct
internet access, and provides access to other hosts
on a lan, via another network intface.

First, update the Core Testing repository with
urpmi.update "Core Updates Testing (distrib5)"

Then install siproxd
urpmi --media "Core Updates Testing (distrib5)" siproxd

Edit /etc/siproxd.conf.  You should only have to set
if_inbound and, if_outbound, and possibly host_outbound.

Then you have to configure the firewall, and possibly router,
to forward the needed ports.

I found some info at

Then, to actually test it, use ekiga or any voip application on a
system on the lan, with the sip outbound proxy set to the address
of the system running siproxd.

I tried to test it using a virtualbox guest, but ran into problems
with the firewall settings, and ip address mangling.

Thanks, Dave Hodgins
