This is basically a continuation of this forum post in FreePBX:
Using FreePBX 13 with A Mock Cellular Network
The reason I am moving over to this forum is because:
- I am considering backing off the GUI due to configuration limitations using FreePBX, and
- Because I need clarification on Asterisk’s SIP Authentication configurations.
To be clear, the issue I am having is that I am trying to connect a cellphone (not through softclient but through VoLTE) to a SIP server.In particular, the FreePBX installation that I am using rejects the cell phone because of mismatched authentication headers (thus throwing 401 Unauthorized). Because the cell phones are expected to use a static authentication parameters that are already established, the 401 messages have no effect in causing the cell phones to conform to Asterisk’s/FreePBX’s default md5 authentication scheme.
So to be clear, my question is:
Is there any way to modify the asterisk Asterisk configuration files (for Asterisk or FreePBX) so that authentication is either disabled, or configured to match that of the cell phones?
