IAX2 calls being droppped


#1

Hi there

I am using an IAX2 softphone built from the IaxClient library dialing into Meetme conferences. It works fine most of the time, but sometimes calls are being dropped and this error is given:

Chan_iax2.c:1480 attempt_transmit: Max retries exceeded to host 146.18.3.5 on IAX2/bob@146.18.3.5:4569/3 (type = 2, subclass = 1024, ts=655380, seqno=177)

This error is pretty erratic. It mostly happens the first time you try to dial, but also seems to sometimes be happening in the middle of a conversation. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Many thanks

Probably a bug in the softphone. Try a different one and see if the same thing is happening. The two i’ve used succesfully are iaxcomm and kiax.
