Connecting to Asterisk


#1

Hi

I am having problems, dialling a local extension. The extension rings and as soon as it is answered, the call goes into voice mail.

Asterisk server is in a different location to the home user. and is behind a router.

I have enabled nat on the server. But i am getting errors as below:

What is your extension.conf for that extensions? Mine is like this…
exten => 6789,1,Dial,SIP/6789|30,r
exten => 6789,2,Voicemail,u6789
exten => 6789,3,Hangup

Looks like you are using SIP with a NAT router.

We will need more info to help you debug this problem.

What phone ? What extension file, how does your sip.conf look like, …
How does your network look like, what type of NAT are you using,…

My tutorial at asteriskguru.com/natut.php might give you some more insight in what is going on. (although its unfinished._
