I am running Asterisk on the cloud Amazon EC2 instance. And I have every single port open for all protocols for both incoming and outbound traffic. My firewall is not even active in my instance.
And I still cannot register a softphone to my Asterisk PBX.
I am using the Zoiper Softphone on Windows 8.1.
The weird thing is that I cannot understand why does’nt Asterisk listen on a port for peer registrations ?
I mean on what port does Asterisk run on ?
By issuing the command ss on my box I cannot find a single entry for Asterisk.
I have registered my provider to Asterisk and it works fine, which means inbound connections can come in.
When I run nc -l 5060 and then check if my port is open from any online port checker I find that it is open. But otherwise it is shown as closed.
Any suggestions ?
My SIP peer registration is as follows-:
[sreyan32] type=friend context=phones allow=ulaw,alaw secret=12345678 host=dynamic
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
