I'm the one who posted a message about the fact that nobody answer
anymore to questions asked.
I posted two days ago a problem I was facing that calls made over the
Internet to my Asterisk gateway would hang-up after just 5s (no NAT
Answer I got was: it's your config
Well, it wasn't (as I was expecting).
I compiled Asterisk under a Linux RedHat 9 PC, I copied across all the
config files from the FreeBSD server to the Linux PC.
Started asterisk, registered the phone: all worked fine first go, and
guess what?? No drop after 5s.
I guess the FreeBSD support is just not up to scratch. So if anybody is
having this problem, just try to find an old PC somewhere load linux
and up you go. This will raise the cost of our Asterisk installation as
we now have to include an extra PC (all our servers are FreeBSD).
Many people have responded to my complaint that there was a lot of
information available and basically people should just read it. My
point is: do not always assume people did not read available
documentation. For the past 4 days I've read the almost entire wiki
site ; I looked at almost all messages sent to this distribution list
that was somehow related to my problem: no luck.
I also faced another problem today. Encouraged by the progress with the
Linux server, I configured the TDM03B (3 FXO ports). Loaded the kernel
module, no problem card was recognized. Started asterisk, tried to make
- - -Can start Zap channel
try about a dozen different configuration ; no luck. As I ran into
similar problem with my FreeBSD box, I thought: there's no way it can
be the driver this time (TDM driver on FreeBSD is an early beta)
So I opened the Linux PC, moved the card from one PCI slot to another.
Tried again as above: no luck.
Open the PC again, move the card into the third and last PCI slot.
Disabled the USB 2.0 host controller that was sharing the same IRQ (7).
Start asterisk, dial: It works!
So now which PCI slot your card is in makes a difference! Something
very fishy here.
Was this documented? I didn't find anything like that whatsoever. I
guess this could be added somewhere
