I am rather new to Asterisk, and I have a rather strange problem, I think.
When I used the free SJPhone softphone client I noticed it was rejected registering after 6-7 hors of logontime. I then tried X-lite softphone klient with the same and different extensions / client log on.
I then tried to reboot the Asterisk deamon with the command “restart gracefully”. This did not help. The telephone were still rejected registering.
Then I rebooted the whole server. Then it was not any problem to register. After some hours the telephone client lost registration and were denyed new registration. Then the whoe server has to be booted again, and so on.
When the SJPhone loose registration it says something strange about a nat firewall. The SJPhone and the Aterisk server is behind a NAT firewall (Smoothwall) and there is no firewall between the Asterisk server and the SJPhone client. There is also no firewall on the Windows PC.
The Asterisk version I use is the preconfigured Centos 3.5 boundle that I downloaded a week ago. (Asteris@home). Everything works ok, I can make outgoung calls (via a iax telephone wendor) and I can receive telephones.
The very strange thing is that I have to reboot the whole server 3-4 times a day to avaid that the clients shall loose registration.
By the way both the Windows and the Asterisk PC’s use fixed local ip’s. When I loose registration on the telephone clients, I still keep connection with the Asterisk server wia web interphace and via ssh.
I will be thankfull for any advice on this stange problem (For me it is wery strange problem. It would be nice if someone knew the answer.)
