SOLVED ooh323 to avaya cm trunk

I am having lots of problems getting an H323 trunk up between an asterisk 1.6 server and an avaya cm 3.1.2 pbx.

I have installed the asterisk anons to include ooh323 which I can see is loaded

localhostCLI> module show like ooh
Module Description Use Count Objective Systems H323 Channel 0
1 modules loaded

When I see which chanel drivers are available I get the following output

localhost*CLI> core show channeltypes
Type Description Devicestate Indications Transfer

USTM UNISTIM Channel Driver no yes no
DAHDI DAHDI Telephony Driver w/PRI & SS7 & MFC no yes no
Console OSS Console Channel Driver no yes no
Agent Call Agent Proxy Channel yes yes no
Skinny Skinny Client Control Protocol (Skinny) yes yes no
SIP Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) yes yes yes
IAX2 Inter Asterisk eXchange Driver (Ver 2) yes yes yes
Local Local Proxy Channel Driver yes yes no
Phone Standard Linux Telephony API Driver no yes no
Bridge Bridge Interaction Channel no no no
MGCP Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) yes yes no

11 channel drivers registered.

as you can see no h323 channel drivers.

I installed all the packages from RPMs and have manualy created the /etc/asterisk/ooh323.conf file



is there anything else I need to do to make the h323 chandel drivers available?

from the asterisk console I don’t see any events to suggest a call even gets to the asterisk server also I can see that on the avaya the trunk in service/idle.

When I perform a list trace of the avaya trunk I can see that calls a passed to the trunk but a denail event is issued.

Any ideas?

After much reading I found I was missing the bindaddr = line from the 00h323.conf file under [general]

First test works well
