ohh thanks for the reply all this is just new too me.
What I want to do is connect from a remote PC to my VOIP server using software such as firefly… What I am unsure of… is should I use the IAX mode or SIP and what mode what ports should I forward through my router? My network at home allows any connections out from a PC but I need to obviously forward individual ports or ranges through my router in either TCP or UDP. Anyone able to help me out ?
ok edit: thanks I kindof sorted it myself just needed to actually DO the port forward properly
now my problem is I can get people to connect but when they try and call numbers, asterisk spits out;
Sep 6 23:38:10 NOTICE: chan_iax2.c:5448 socket_read: Rejected connect attempt from xx.xx.xx.xx
now I assume I need to take a look at how to set it up for NAT etc… etc ?
