I am able to connect with Asterisk on the first try after fresh load, but not on the subsequent tries.I have to re-reload sip.conf and extensions.conf to connect with Asterisk. Looking at the logs, it seems like a registration issue. So I set minexpirty and maxexpirty that seems to have no effect. can post the logs, if someone wants me to. Your kind help is appreciated.

    http://www.asteriskwin32.com hosts only a very very old version of Asterisk
    (1.2.something). What speaks against setting up a small virtual
    machine to host a recent version of Asterisk?

    jg

    You have a point. My SIP provider at the moment is Vonage which I can’t access from work (some security issue:)So I am confined to testing from home and I don’t have any other machine to spare. If there is no other wayto trouble-shoot the problem, I will have to do what you suggest. Thanks & Regardsmurthy

    For very little $$$ you could obtain an HP thin client, load a modern version of Asterisk using AstLinux, and leave your Win 7 machine to do what it does best ( which is certainly NOT Asterisk )
    Once installed, it can be completely controlled and configured remotely over your home LAN, consumes very little power, has a universal power supply, consumes little power and no noisy fans. HP5720 units can be had off eBay for $20-30 US. Even with shipping to your country, really low cost solution much more in the mainstream. AstLinux uses standard Asterisk confs. The GUI is used for management and editing, and doesn’t use the difficult to troubleshoot and quirky overlays of a TrixBox or FreePBX

    ​Another option (assuming your computer has enough ram and disk space) is to run a copy of Linux in Vmware Player (which is available for free). It allows you to run the Linux environment in a virtual computer as if it was an application on windows. Then you can test the most recent release of Asterisk (version 13 at the moment).​

  • ​In a virtual environment, the DAHDI library is not useful, as it only serves to connect to hardware cards that you likely don’t have and VMware generally doesn’t support passing through to the virtual machine anyway.

    To get assistance with specific SIP call failures, you would need to capture the SIP messaging for an instance where it failed, using ‘sip set debug’ in Asterisk or wireshark, and then share that. You’ll only need the actual SIP traffic on port 5060, not the RTP.

    I would also recommend testing with a different provider (ITSP) first. I
    have used voip.ms successfully with Asterisk.

  • Why?

    Trying to get Asterisk to run on Windows is like trying to teach a gerbil to bark. It’s an extraordinary effort, and the result is unlikely to do anything other than disappoint.

    * Asterisk was designed from the outset to run on Unix-like systems, and has certain design decisions baked into it that preclude it from building on legacy systems such as Windows without serious modifications. Any version of Asterisk that has been persuaded to run on Windows will be behind the curve, and missing the latest and greatest features.

    * Asterisk, even on its native Linux platform where all the bits work properly, is harder to use than Linux. The supposed “advantage” of not needing to learn to use Linux is negated by the steeper learning curve of Asterisk.

    * Asterisk doesn’t make too many demands of hardware, except for preferring to have its hardware all to itself. You can try it out on a scrap PC (available free almost anywhere) at first and then, if you like it, install it on a dedicated machine. If you don’t need dedicated PCI / PCI express hardware, then you can even run Asterisk on something like a Raspberry Pi.

    If you want to run Asterisk, then you might as well bite the bullet and run it on Linux. Also, forget about pre-compiled packages, just build it from Source Code.
