fix: asterisk voip2pots linux rejects some calls

Posted:Fri 22 of Feb, 2008 (09:26 UTC)

this is a paid gig.

we have a recent trixbox installation with Asterisk 1.2.13-BRIstuffed-0.3.0-PRE-1v for a small office. one landline number that goes into the box and maybe 6 internal voip phones. now everything works, BUT callers from one certain POTS provider get rejected. i.e. they call the +431... number and get a busy signal. there's some obscure message in the logs, but nothing more.

grep 'Rejecting call' /var/log/asterisk/full|grep -v "from ''"|sed -e 's/^.*from .//g'| sed -e 's/. does not.*$//'|sort -n|uniq -c

gives something like

2 0424229106
3 0512333414
1 0577001255
2 0577001256
1 0577001668
24 0720308837

all the caller id numbers are from an Astrian provider called Tele2/UTA (www.tele2.at or www.uta.at)

we need this fixed.

do not know whether it's something in asterisk itself or bristuff ...
