SIP Trunk wont connect until RELOAD issued

Hi there,

Asterisk 1.4.21-2-dfsg-3ubuntu2

I have a simple configuration, a few extensions and a single SIP Trunk.

After asterisk is loaded my extensions register just fine… I issue a SIP SHOW PEERS and don’t see my Trunk listed.

I execute “RELOAD” and again do “SIP SHOW PEERS” and my SIP Trunk is now available.

Is anyone able to enlighten me?

Many thanks,
