Please forgive my newbie question here. I have set-up and Asterisk server and it seems to perform fine however sometimes the audio of the call routes through Asterisk and sometimes it goes straight to the other party.
So, for example if I call someone, as soon as I am connected the network activity light for the server stops flashing and the ATA network activity light continues. I’m guessing the RTP data is going straight to the other party. This is fine.
However, sometimes I call the same person, and once the call it connected, network activity lights on both server and ATA flash like mad throughout the entire call. When this happens the speech is all jumbled up. I’m guessing the RTP data is going to the server and being forwarded on.
Both the Asterisk server and the ATA share the same router but they both have external IP addresses so there is no NAT.
Now I’ll never be doing anything particularily clever with the server, so I would like to prevent the server from routing these RTP packets (if at all possible) to prevent the problem.
Is this possible or am I barking up the wrong tree (so to speak)?
