This works. I have tested with the following settings:
In regards to the specifics of your question:
In sip.conf:

In users.conf, for each user (changing the permit statement to the ip of
each user):
permit=   (using your ip setting)

Hope that helps

Subject: [asterisk-users] How does deny/permit work in sip.conf?

I have been seeing some attempts to register devices on my Asterisk
and I want to reconfigure it so that devices will be registered only
if they are from the correct address, ie

I thought using a config like


but it is not working the way I thought?

Does that need a host=static.ip entry to work, rather than the
deny/permit option?

Does using a host=dynamic setting override any deny/permit and
port=5060 options?

Does being a peer or a user make a difference here?
