1-way audio problem (X-Lite=Asterisk=VoIP Gateway=POTS)


#1

Dear all,

This is my setup:
[X-Lite] <–SIP/RTP–> [Asterisk] <–SIP/RTP–> [Addpac AP1100F VoIP Gateway] <–FXO—FXS–> [GSM gateway] <–> [Mobile phone]

The problem is that the audio only works in one direction.
I am using X-Lite and can hear the person in the mobile phone, but the person in the mobile phone cannot hear me.

OK: [X-Lite] <—AUDIO— [Mobile phone]
DOESN’T WORK: [X-Lite] —AUDIO—> [Mobile phone]

I have tried to route the call to another X-Lite through the Asterisk, and then the audio works fine both ways.

Any clues?

This is my Asterisk configuration:

sip.conf:

[general]
context=default
port=5060
bindaddr=0.0.0.0
srvlookup=yes

[xlite]
type=friend
username=xlite
context=ap1100f
secret=XXXXXXXXX
host=dynamic
canreinvite=no

extensions.conf:

[ap1100f]
exten => _467XXXXXXXX,1,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN}@192.168.0.10)

IP-addresses:
[X-Lite 192.168.10.X] <—> [192.168.10.2 : Asterisk : 192.168.0.1] <—> [192.168.0.10 AP1100F]

IP-addresses:
[X-Lite 192.168.10.X] <—> [192.168.10.2 : Asterisk : 192.168.0.1] <—> [192.168.0.10 AP1100F]

Can u explain your setup more detailed ?
How/why has asterisk 2 IP adresses ?
Asterisk is no router.

I got it to work.
I upgraded the firmware on the AP1100F and configured it from scratch.

Finally! :smile:

Btw, the Asterisk in my setup is terminating traffic from VoIP to the PSTN via the Addpac AP1100F device. That is why it has two IP-addresses. (The Addpac is connected directly to the Asterisk second Ethernet interface, since it shouldn’t be possible to connect to it directly from the Internet. You can achieve the same thing using firewall settings, but I thought this was an easier approach)
