NAT yes

Hello averybody,

In a no natted environment if I letnat=yes on sip.conf it would cause some thing bad or it is irrelevant ? Anybody know ?

thanks in advanced!

Callback + DISA


I am trying to use a Callback system that return the call to some
number then give it a dial tone with DISA. The callback works well and i
can hear the dial tone, the problem is that DISA doesn’t do anything
when i press any extension number of the current context and hangs the
call up after few seconds. If i use callback just to return to the
number then call an extension (ex: a sip phone) it works fine, do you
know if there is some incompatibility about DISA + Callback?

Obs. I use DTMF signaling. (Brazil)

(Patrick Deruel’s) that is not going anywhere (latest version based on

Are there just not enough interest and too many, deep, Linux-specific
assumptions in the code, that would explain why Asterisk was never
officially ported to Windows?

Thank you.
