“empty buf size”

Trying out 10.0.0-rc1. It dies starting up:

== Parsing ‘/etc/asterisk/codecs.conf': == Found
[Nov 11 17:07:05] WARNING[5078]: translate.c:1060
__ast_register_translator: empty buf size, you need to supply one
[root@asterisk ~]#

Where do I supply the “buf size” to the translator? And what should it be??

DID Provider Issues

How do people get around when their DID provider is experiencing routing issues and cannot terminate the DID to your box and all
your clients from that provider can no longer receive inbound calls to their company?


Can’t send 10 type frames with SIP write

Provider to End User connection

If you are providing a hosted phone system to customers, how do you deliver the calls?

If you are a end user, how does your provider deliver the calls to you?

The reason I ask is I read and hear a lot of issues where people are getting dropped calls or service being completely down because
the end user is receiving their SIP connections over the internet, the local cable/dsl provider.

What should an end user look for in a ISP/ITSP when choosing a VoIP provider in regards to the most reliable service?
