Thanks for your message.
So far so good…to a point.
Asterisk installed quickly and easily, and I’m able to make calls on the local network without a fuss.
What I’m now trying to do is receive calls from the PSTN, which is where things are getting tricky. I’m behind a Barricade Router 7004VBR, which is at least three years old. It supports port forwarding, and I’ve successfully run a web server from behind it before now.
However, I can’t get call the number I’ve been allocated and successfully reach myself from the PSTN. All I get is the usual Sipgate voicemail greeting, which is nothing to do with Asterisk. I’ve now disabled that, and I get “service cannot be connected”, instead.
I would like to forward ports to Asterisk, but can’t find a decent list of which ports to forward anywhere. I also don’t know what I need to do to get Asterisk to tell Sipgate a device is live at my end. Do I need to reboot the device, or will it keep trying until it succeeds?
Furthermore, is there a log available I can use for troubleshooting? Would it help if I pasted in my config files?
Thanks a lot for your help.
