[Asterisk-Users] Multiple IAX "register" lines?

In you iax.conf file, are you using type=friend?  I seem to remember a
discussion about problems if using type=friend instead of type=user for
multiple registered servers with the same userid.  I may have the details
messed up on this though!  

I have the same setup your describing and it works great!

In the iax.conf file I have broken the inbound and outbound into 2 separate
stanzas, i.e. -

; for inbound from Nufone

; for outbound to Nufone

Hope this helps.

Thats the problem I have a dynamic IP on my side which is why I need the
"register" line in the iax.conf..

iax2 debug shows that it is registering the first line but not the second..
