Hello friends:

I am facing cutoffs randomly when negotiating calls.

The PBX dials the destination, the provider (softswitch) receives the request *[1]* and sudenly the PBX hangs up the call* [2]* while the provider is still dialing it, as a consequence the remote peer receives a ghost call. Along the atempt I could see six times a messages regarding NAT
isuues *[3]*

I hope anyone can give me an idea to solve this issue. Softswitch is using an implementation of RFC 3264 and the PBX being used is Elastix 2.3 with Asterisk

Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    It’s looks like you are having NAT problem. Packets from the provider fail reaching your box.

  • Hi, You must have two thing for start:
    1. Set your FW to allow sip port (by default 5060) to your asterisk IP
    2. Set your asterisk configuration with the external public IP and your local subnet address (so asterisk will put his public address for outside the networks calls)

    Google for asterisk NAT configuration parameters.
