Can't connect to asterisk server with SIP (timeout)

Can't connect to asterisk server with SIP (timeout)

Can't connect to asterisk server with SIP (timeout)

I'm trying to setup an asterisk SIP server with SIP softphones on the same network, the problem is that I only get a timeout error when I try to register with the server.

Here is the SIP account config in sip.conf:

And here is what I added to it in extensions.conf:
exten => 212,1,Dial(SIP/test)
exten => 212,n,Voicemail(test)
exten => 212,n,Hangup

However, as said, I can't connect to it. Have I missunderstood something? Can't Asterisk do SIP like that? I've tried several things and I'm starting to get quite frustrated about this so please, anyone, help me.


RE: Can't connect to asterisk server with SIP (timeout)


try setting username and secret to digits. I typically use 200 for the username and 200 for the password, at least in testing looking around

I use trixbox to setup my stuff.

Regards, Dave.
