Asterisk and GnuGk Gatekeeper anyone?


#1

Can anyone help me with using Asterisk and GnuGk gatekeeper? How do I register the Asterisk Zap or SIP extensions with the Gatekeeper so that I can call them direct from a H.323 client and vice versa? I can call the Asterisk server from the client but then it only goes to the default extension, I can’t specify the extension I want to call as only the Asterisk server is registered in the Gatekeeper. Any docs etc that I can be pointed to will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gerry :confused:

I got the * working with openh323gk.

My sip clients are connected with a sip proxy and the h323 are on the gnugk.

You need to configure the sip/zap on your * and the h323 on your gatekeeper.
That’s more an h323 issue…

Install any of the h323 channel that come with *.
You need to configure the h323 gatekeeper to forward the h323 calls to the asterisk.

My scenario is this:
Asterisk and GnuGk running on same Debian server.
Sip, Zap and H323 clients.
Sip clients work fine to make external calls via Zia and IAX trunks as well as too other Sip extensions and Zap extension.
H323 calls always fall back to the ‘s’ extension no matter what call I try to place. The below below shows the result of me trying to place a call to FWD’s 612 number, 9 is the prefex for the FWD IAX trunk:
l == Starting OH323/R9854 at voip-h323,9612,1 failed so falling back to exten ‘s’
== Starting OH323/R9854 at voip-h323,s,1 still failed so falling back to context ‘default’
– Executing Answer(“OH323/R9854”, “”) in new stack
– Executing Dial(“OH323/R9854”, “Zap/2|30|tr”) in new stack
– Called 2
– Zap/2-1 is ringing
– Zap/2-1 is ringing
– H.323 call ‘ip$192.168.2.125:1276/9854’ cleared, reason 4 (Cleared by remote user)
– Hungup ‘Zap/2-1’
== Spawn extension (default, s, 2) exited non-zero on ‘OH323/R9854’
– Hungup ‘OH323/R9854’

My assumtion is that * is not recognising the incoming H323 extension and therefore not allowing it to place a call. What do I have to do to get the extension registered on * ? I would also like to be able to call the H323 extension from other extensions such as a Sip or Zap extension.
