[Asterisk-Users] BroadVoice usage?

When I first got this going, I tested with a spare SPA-2000 as well as
Xlite.  Once I got it working there, I transferred the settings to *.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, we do have a context for incoming calls -- it's used for not only
BroadVoice (which isn't working) and VoiceGlo and iConnectHere (which
are working.) And, yes, we do have a pattern match on our number in our
[general] context in extensions.conf. As of this morning, when we dial
our BroadVoice number, we get a fast busy and our Asterisk server is
never contacted.

As for outgoing, we did make the change to sip.broadvoice.com (from
proxy.broadvoice.com). This did make a change on our outgoing
calls: the BroadVoice server responded with:
         Got SIP response 604 "Does not exist anywhere" back from This is progress but it's still an error. :-( And, no: our
Asterisk server is not behind a NAT firewall.

I have an email into BroadVoice to double-check the status of our

Thanks, again.
