My current goal to understand asterisk is to get a local softphone to call a remote asterisk server.
My sip.conf is :
I am using these settings in my softphone (QuteCom on OSX)
login/username:testuser password:testuser SIP Domain/Realm: ipaddress of server Display Name: testuser
I keep getting this error on the asterisk console:
Registration from '<sip:email@example.com>' failed for '216.blah.my.local.ip' - No matching peer found
I don’t understand what’s going on here. It is definitely getting to the remote server. What is weird is that if I change the login/username to anything other than test user, such as testaccount, I get this:
Registration from '<sip:firstname.lastname@example.org>' failed for '216.blah.my.local.ip' - No matching peer found
For some reason only when I try what is in my sip.conf, it suddently becomes “nobody.” I also don’t know if I’m setting up everything correctly. I didn’t use a register directive because I am not considering any outgoing calls from asterisk yet. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Thanks!
