[App_rpt-users] iax / Asterisk & I should never be called

No replies on this one - yet


Let me add one thing - if I try to connect to the node on port 4569 while
the one on port 4568 is already connected, iaxRpt gives an error message
about the  node already being active and refuses to attempt the connection.


So I am sort of concluding that iaxRpt cannot handle a case where there are
two nodes on different ports at the same IP address.  I am (slightly)
surprised that the one that works is the higher-numbered node on the
non-standard port, but given the messages that app_rpt is throwing off
(below), it's clear that chan_iax.c and channel.c are working in some sort
of goofball mode anyhow and I am just lucky that it fails in a way to yield
a working connection  (these are versions 266 and 267, incidentally).


Has anyone else tried iaxRpt on  an asterisk system with two nodes behind a
common router?

Subject: iax / Asterisk & I should never be called


Been scratching my head here for a week with iaxRpt. 


I have two nodes: I can connect to one of them (so iaxRpt is obviously
working) but not the other


App-rpt  is trying to tell me something about the problem but I do not know

I have looked at iax.conf and extensions.conf and do not see any differences
between the two nodes, other than the node numbers.

I am connecting from behind the same router. 

The node that works is on port 4568 (on the internet side) and the one that
does not work is on port 4569.

The one that works can connect both on the local IP address and on the WAN
address with the 4568 port number appended.

I have tried making the iaxRpt "listener port 4567, "just for grins" - no

Here is what it looks like when it works (the other node):

       > requested prefs = (),

       > actual format = gsm,

    -- Hungup 'Zap/pseudo-135650357'


The "I should never be called" message looks like something gone wrong in
app-rpt .. except that it works.
