[App_rpt-users] Registration Issues

I have an issue that comes up from time to time with my setup in Colorado. The first time it happened, I  changed the port in Allstar to another port and that was the fix. I thought it was my ISP blocking 4569. 
Then a month later it happened again. So I changed the port again and of course made the forwarding rule change in my router. 
After a few iterations of this, I decided that the next time this happens, that I would just blow away to rule and rebuild it and see what happens. Sure enough that was the key to fix the issue. Keep in mind, it takes a little while sometimes for all the other nodes to see that you registered by the update to the ip list ,but in my case the problem seems to be with the router. It is a two wire DSL router and one day I will replace it with one that someone could recommend. But for whatever it is worth, I am able to log into the modem remotely and issue a restart. I have found that sometimes it takes 2 to 3 restarts to the modem/router and the problem is resolved. I don't understand why this continues to be a problem but it could possibly be similar in your case.

Like I said earlier, it works for months on end and then has trouble registering all of a sudden. Has anyone else had any registration issues using a Mikrotik device? IAX has been stuck on the Registering/Retrying/Timeout for about 5 days now.
