Need help in registering sip softphone with asterisk

Hi All,
I am new to the asterisk and i need your help in registering sip and iax client softphone with asterisk server.

i have laptop that has win xp professional running successfully on which two guest operating system one fedora linux 12 and another is win xp sp 2 running separately on microsoft virtual pc 2007 .

i downloaded and compile the asterisk on fedora 12 that is running on VPC2007 .

i installed the x-lite on xp that is also running on another virtual machine and trying to register with asterisk that i have compiled and running on fedora12.

but i am getting Regitration Error 408 Request timed out.

when i am trying to register the sip client softphone (zoipper)from the same network (From fedora) i am able get register so i am assuming the configuration file change is correct for registering the sip client.

i am connected to the net through wirless adapter and i am using linksys wireless router for this.

i googled about it but i am unable to get past from this problem.

any help will be appreciated.

as i haven’t two separate machine thats why i am using virtual machine to learn the things about asterisk.


Sounds like you have a network configuration problem with your VPC. Most of the time the virtual machines are running under a NAT setting. Which would not allow one VM to talk to the other VM.

I perfer to use Virtual Box. Under its network settings for the virtual machines, you change it from NAT to a bridged Adapter. I don’t know what the compariable option is for under VPC.

thanks for reply i beleive that i change the network setting as bridged instead of NAT as you mentioned in your post.

i followed the following tutorial for bridging the virtual pc … k-adapter/

for cross verification i downloaded the putty and tried to login on another virtual machine that is running fedora 12 on which i compiled my asterisk1.6.2.11.

i am able to login and issued the command asterisk -r and its running properly i am able to get CLI prompt on my virtual machine running xp sp2 on which i installed x-lite and trying to register to asterisk server running on another virtual machine that has fedora 12

following is the screen shot of what i did on xp sp2 virtual machine and what result i got
[root@localhost asterisk-]# asterisk -r
