I was working on a test Asterisk server for my company a few months back, but it got put on hold, and now we’re rebuilding it to begin testing again, however we’re running into a problem for which I’m sure there is a very simple solution (though I cannot find it).
The server is already setup with a basic dialplan in place. What I’m trying to do for the time being is to get 2 softphones to be able to call each other. Both of the phones can dial into the Asterisk server and can communicate with the IVR.
However, when I try and Dial from one softphone to the other, Asterisk will not ring the receiving phone.
So for example, in my dial plan, as a test, I’m using
exten => xxxx,1,Dial(SIP/username,10)
So both users have their phones already initialized in the sip.conf file, and they are both registering with Asterisk fine. However, when I do the call, I get the following -
– Executing Dial(“SIP/myname”, “SIP/username|10”) in new stack
– Called username
Then it stops (until it times out). It never rings the destination phone. So it never gets to the part
– SIP/username is ringing
I have checked port and firewall settings, and they all appear to be set properly. I have not tried a reinstall of Asterisk yet, as I’m hoping that this is a simple fix.
Below are the 2 accounts that I have created in the sip.conf file, just with their usernames masked.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
