Asterisk @ Home + Sipgate

Has anybody managed to get a SIP account from sipgate to work with Asterisk, i have set up a SIP trunk but cant get it to register with sipgates server.

Works for me (Asterisk 1.2.4).
Sourced the Internet and followed the tracks of a blogger

Did you use the GUI or command lines ?

I configured directly in the .conf files, so I believe this counts as command line.
If the GUI you are using correctly reflects the configuration options of the relevant .conf files you should be allright. Here are excerpts of my configuration with in /etc/asterisk/sip.conf

context=incoming ; Default context for incoming calls
bindport=5060 ; UDP Port to bind to
bindaddr= ; IP address to bind to ( binds to all)
srvlookup=yes ; Enable DNS SRV lookups on outbound calls
disallow=all ; First disallow all codecs
allow=ulaw ; Allow codecs in order of preference
language=us ; Default language setting for all users/peers
nat=no ; NAT settings
register =>
externip = ; Address that we’re going to put in outbound SIP messages
localnet=; All RFC 1918 addresses are local networks
tos=0x 18

username=1234567 ; phone number here
fromuser=1234567 ; phone number here
secret=ABCDEFG ; password, from sipgate user panel on website
allow=alaw ; gsm
tos=0x 18

I receive calls through settings in the dialplan /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf

exten => 1234567,1,Set(LANGUAGE()=de) ; Announcements in German for da family exten => 1234567,n,Macro(stdexten,100,SIP/JP-O&SIP/JP-W)
with JP-O & JP-W internal SIP phones I want to ring simultaniously.

I place calls to Germany as follows (again extensions.conf):

TRUNK_GER=SIP ; Variable: VoIP SIP exten => _901149.,1,Dial(${TRUNK_GER}/0${EXTEN:6}@SIPGATE,60,tT) ; SIPGATE - Germany only exten => _901149.,n,Hangup() On internal SIP phones, I dial 9 to “get a line” and US-style country code prefix 01149 to get to Germany. All that is my decision. The concatinated prefix 901149 could be anyhting else which would not overlap with other dialplan prefixes.

So after punching in settings in the GUI, I assume you should be able to verify your settings on the command line with:

I’ve never work with any of the derivates (Asterisk@home) and GUIs so the location of these configuration files might be somewhere else.

Thanks for the replie, i will have a look at the things you mentioned at the moment iam trying to get a sipgate number to be answered with the IVR. For some reason i cant get sipgate to see the server.

long night ahead

Not sure if it’s relevant to your problem but on 5th Dec I was having probs with incoming calls from Peers. I was told by Sipgate support…

"We are about to fix the connections from our listed peering partners:

What we don’t accept any more (for months) are direct IP calls by sip-uri."
