I had this problem before and was able to solve it:

  • Wish not granted !!! 🙂 You will be the guinea pig to new features !!!

    Same issue with A2Billing connecting to Asterisk. With older version this
    problem is not there.

    Easy fix.
    STOP using the latest and “greatest” or even near latest.

    Revert to a version that works for your specific application, and leave
    it alone.

    I am in a community that uses mostly 1.4, some 1.2, even a couple that
    still use 1.0, with a very few using 1.6 or 1.8
    I remember 1.4 went through many versions with certain technologies
    broken, then fixed, then broken again

  • Solved it again :-/
    This time in sip.conf the pstn line must have:

    I was happy with Asterisk 1.4.39 till Gentoo gurus removed it from portage under the “vulnerability” umbrella.
    I try to stay with portage when it comes to package upgrade it is easier to manage package but whey they are upgrading new packages and introducing more bugs I don’t like
    it. I have to waste my time hunting for solution and if I’ll be lucky I’ll find one :-/

    I think I will compile version outside portage and don’t have to worry about upgrades version that don’t work correctly.
    The biggest problem with Linux is frequent updates and screw-ups that comes with it!

  • All “screwing up with Asterisk” is supposed to be documented in the relevant UPGRADE*.txt files. Have you checked them?

  • ” is supposed to be” but does NOT happen. There are many examples of
    regressions introduced after many complains on the forum of a broken

  • Correct, but the changes to the insecure= item is clearly documented in the UPGRADE-1.6.txt file

    * SIP: The old “insecure” options, deprecated in 1.4, have been removed.
    “insecure=very” should be changed to “insecure=port,invite”
    “insecure=yes” should be changed to “insecure=port”
    Be aware that some telephony providers show the invalid syntax in their
    sample configurations.

  • I’ve tried putting even “wait(7) it didn’t help.
    The problem is I’m getting this error:

    WARNING[2344]: chan_sip.c:13930 check_auth: username mismatch, have <11>, digest has NOTICE[2344]: chan_sip.c:21989 handle_request_invite: Failed to authenticate device “KMIEC Z” ;tag=1c283128597

  • Check your sip.conf and users.conf – my guess is that the pstn-1270 is an
    assigned value that you need to remove or comment out.

  • What do you mean “assigned value”

    My user.conf:
    fullname = New User
    userbase = 6000
    hasvoicemail = yes
    vmsecret = 1234
    hassip = yes
    hasiax = yes
    hasmanager = no
    callwaiting = yes
    threewaycalling = yes
    callwaitingcallerid = yes
    transfer = yes
    canpark = yes
    cancallforward = yes
    callreturn = yes
    callgroup = 1
    pickupgroup = 1


    canreinvite=no ; (dtmf not wroking correctly without this one)

  • Putting in a Wait(n) is only (sometimes) needed to wait for the CallerID NAME on PRI or BRI.

  • If I don’t get the WARNING above the caller ID comes through just find, so it is not the “wait(n)” state.
