Hmm, yeah im not 100% sure whats the issue. I can make outgoing calls, any softphone client on a desktop or smartphone will register and make ext-ext calls no problem as well as outgoing. Just incoming doesn’t work, and when I do call my GV number, it redirects to another number that then leads to my Google Voice voicemail. Not real privy on Asterisk so not even sure how to check oAuth version. I do know its 11.4
Sorry, I don’t really know anything more about it, except that yesterday/today’s issue seems to have affected Obihai and Asterisk equally and there are a lot of inconsistent reports about how the problem was resolved.
The error message at face value seems to point to a TLS incompatibility, as though Google were enforcing a more strict TLS scheme and the client side has an older OpenSSL implementation that is not compatible. That hypothesis would line up with Google’s usual push for stronger, more secure encryption, but there is no proof that this is the case.
The other thing we saw while troubleshooting it on the PIAF forum was users only being offered OAUTH2 as a login method – user/pass (“plain”) login was not being offered in the XMPP handshake.
It’s not known whether people resolved the connection problem through various updates or it went away on its own (i.e. Google did something, or it was a temporary error on some of Google’s XMPP servers).
The obvious solution is to switch to something that is actually a VOIP connection. There are lots of inexpensive VOIP providers that compete favorably with Google Voice and don’t limit what you can do through their EULA.
I usually recommend the two providers I use for outbound (Alcazar Networks and CallWithUs) and the one I use for inbound (Voip Innovations). Of course, SIPStation (the sponsor of the forum’s service) is an excellent choice.
Google has made it clear that they aren’t interested in support the PBX community with free phone services. At some point, they are going to start hammering on people that allow people to abuse their services. If I was Bill, I’d say “nope, sorry. Google doesn’t want people to connect their PBXes up to GV anymore and I don’t want to be sued.” I’m not, of course, so Bill is absolutely encouraged to do whatever his heart desires.
it looks like I only upgraded freepbx and my asterisk is way old. I am working on updating my freepbx distro to something newer than 4.211.64. and if I understand at that point I can run asterisk 12, which should solve my issue
asterisk 11.14 solved the google voice issue, freepbx distro 220.127.116.11
