Thanks jcolp for the help so far.
I haven’t configured a dhcp server on my asterisk machine because my router has dhcp configured on it. So when I configure sip.conf using “host=dynamic” for both peers lambert and caleb, what I get when I type “sip show peers” the following shows up:
Name/username Host Dyn Forcerport Comedia ACL Port Status Description
caleb (Unspecified) D Auto (No) No 0 UNKNOWN
lambert (Unspecified) D Auto (No) No 0 UNKNOWN
I just don’t know what to do. I really what to register sip both on my softphone and IP phone.
Currently my IP address for my asterisk machine is 192.168.1.59 from typing the command “ifconfig” when gives me the folllowing results:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 94:57:A5:B0:AE:3B

When I use 192.168.1.59 as the “registrar” in registering/configuring a sip account on my IP phone and softphone, it tells me “cannot register account”.
My asterisk server has been configured on a CentOS 6 operating system so I use the softphone that comes with it which is “ekiga”. Ekiga has issues with is audio. Can you please suggest which softphone to use.
jcolp, kindly help me solve this problem.
