I have successfully installed and configured asterisk but I haven’t been hearing anything yet with the softphones. I have installed ekiga as softphones on some PCs and I have zoiper running on my android tablet. Zoiper works and I am sure of it since there seems to be no problems with the mic and speakers. I created the sip.conf file as followed
[general] context default bindport = 5060 bindaddr = 0.0.0.0 tcpbindaddr = 0.0.0.0 tcpenable = yes  type = friend callerid = Brad <1001> secret = **** disallow = all allow =ilbc host = dynamic careinvite = no dtmfmode = rfc2833 mailbox = 1001@default allow = alaw allow = ulaw nat = yes qualify = yes  type = friend callerid = Josh <1002> secret = **** disallow = all allow = ilbc host = dynamic careinvite = no dtmfmode = rfc2833 mailbox = 1002@default allow=ulaw allow=alaw nat=yes qualify = yes
This is the sip.conf file and here is the extensions.conf file
[general] static=yes writeprotect=no [default] exten => 1001,1,Answer() exten => 1001,n,Dial(SIP/1001,20,t) exten => 1001,n,Hangup() exten => 1002,1,Answer() exten => 1002,n,Dial(SIP/1002,20,t) exten => 1002,n,Hangup() exten => 1,1,Answer() exten => 1,n,Playback(demo-echotest) exten => 1,n,Echo() exten => 1,n,Playback(demo-echodone) exten => 1,n,Hangup()
As you can see I have setup an echo test extension to see if I can hear anything but I am not hearing anything over the lines. I have it running on a Dell Dimension 3000 and the soundcard has some ageing as far as drivers go (I have had some problems getting the sound card working but I didn’t think that that was a problem as far as asterisk has gone) It is running debian squeeze and has been updated with the latest software patches and updates from the squeeze repositories that are automatically added when you add them with synaptic. I have yet to figure out the problem as to why there isn’t any sound through the devices. When I tested it on ekiga I found that ekiga needed some sound devices to be configured for it to work properly I finally got ekiga to ring but I still couldn’t hear anything when I did the echo test. I know for sure that it wasn’t an ekiga problem since it has worked before and I tried using zoiper on my android tablet and I get the same thing. I can call the softphones with ringtones and everything but I just can’t hear anything from the server or the person on the other phone. What is the problem here, Do I need to install another piece of software in order for the audo to work?
