I set up with a SIP provider to get 1 incoming line with up to 2 connections at a time. This is an inbound only trunk. I have set up the trunk as instructed by the provider.
User context. sip.ipcomms.net
no register string needed.
I have also set up an inbound route for any DID/any CID to go to my main IVR. Allow anonymous SIP callers is allowed.
Initially, I noticed the calls connected but, I couldn’t get the IVR message to play. I fixed that by recording the messages through my extension instead.
Now, I can dial the # given by my provider from any number, cell phone or land line and the IVR message plays. However, when I select the option I want, it does nothing.
The dtmfmode is set to the correct value, so, not sure what is going on.
Calling from the 7777 number works OK though. So, I know it has something to do with the inbound trunk…but, that is the extent of my knowledge.
There is a ZAP trunk set up and I have no idea what that is. I don’t remember creating it, unless I did so in error. I didn’t want to mess with it until I posted something, in case it is important.
I am using the latest version of trixbox CE and am doing everything via SIP/ internet based connections. I do not have any phone hardware involved.
I am using a dynamic IP with a no-ip redirect. All appropriate ports are forwarded and the rest of the settings seem to be OK.
Also, if someone could make a suggestion for a good, free, multi-platform sip softphone I would also appreciate it. X-lite freezes my computer horribly…
Thank you again for everyone’s help. I have gotten a lot of help here over the past couple of days while getting my PBX set up. I have also done searching on my own and found a lot of useful information.
