I’ve been hammering away with a Poly601 today. Got Asterisk to build properly and run, the Poly601 to update from FTP, etc.
However, how can I test the phone to Asterisk communication with only just the one phone and no outgoing lines?
I.e. this is what I have
Fedora Core 5 x86-64 running latest stable Asterisk
Polycom IP 601 w/ 1.6.6.0036 SIP
Both connected to the same gigabit switch and not using DHCP.
Linux box is at 192.168.1.24
Poly 601 is at 192.168.1.101
Here are the relevant snippets from sip.conf, extensions.conf, and voicemail.conf
exten => 101,1,Macro(extensions,Sip/101,101)
exten => 611,1,Answer()
exten => 611,n,Echo()
101 => 1234,Emgee
At the *CLI if I type ‘sip show peers’ I see
Name/username Host Dyn Nat ACL Port Status
101/polycom 192.168.1.101 5060 OK (75 ms)
1 sip peers [1 online , 0 offline]
Does that indicate that my Poly IP 601 has successfully registered with Asterisk?
If I dial 611 on the phone the echo thing does nothing. Trying to dial the mailbox, does nothing.
I read that on the Poly that the phone icon should be solid black if it is registered; the icon on my phone is still just an outline.
I’ve rebooted the phone and restarted Asterisk and same situation.
I’ll be reading some more online, digging through stuff… but if anyone here can help me out it would greatly speed things up
