As if this topic doesn’t come up enough
Here is my sip.conf file:
context=from-sip-external allowoverlap=no bindport=5060 bindaddr=0.0.0.0 srvlookup=yes externip=MYIPADDRESS localnet=172.16.50.0/255.255.255.0 disallow=all allow=ulaw allow=ilbc allow=alaw nat=yes callerid=Unknown canreinvite=no progressinband=yes
The externip setting is set to my actual IP address, not 'MYIPADDRESS’
In AsteriskNow, I have SIP extensions setup that have NAT enabled. I have my softphone on the same local network as the server and I have a softphone at a remote location (both softphones are X-Lite). The outside IP address is being directly translated to the internal one and I am not currently blocking any TCP or UDP traffic.
I am having two problems. When I place a call from the softphone here at the office, the call is placed and the remote user and I are able to have a conversation for a few seconds. However, the X-Lite phone on my laptop does not show the call as being connected (the ‘Calling…’ message still displays despite being connected) and the call eventually is cut off and then goes to voicemail.
The next problem I am having is that the remote user can not have any password set for their phone. It seems that the password must be blank otherwise we keep getting unauthorized messages when the phone registers.
ANY help would be appreciated!
