I see this from 5:12 today

[2012-05-05 05:12:50] VERBOSE[17957] pbx.c: -- Executing [972592577956@from-sip-external:1] NoOp("SIP/58.28.152.22-00000059", "Received incoming SIP connection from unknown peer to 972592577956") in new stack

58.28.152.22 is WXC

What does the rest mean?

It's your box being attacked constantly by a script trying to hack it. You shouldn't have port 5060 open to the internet allowing this.

This issue is nothing to do with WxC - it's purely your public IP being targetted. If you are game enough to leave external ports open expect to see hundreds, if not thousands, of such attempts every week on your system.

Just wondering why WXC's IP address appears in the log.

I have 5060 open as I haven't found an ASDL modem with firewall that works without port forwarding.  If I don't have port forwarding on then I can't register my trunks.

Anonymous SIP connections are currently disallowed.

And anything which is lacking my DID is also disconnected.  And fail2ban is also active.

They gave up easily ... the 3 connections dropped after a minute.

If you can use a hardware firewall if at all possible. If you need remote extensions the Yealink phones have OpenVPN in them - never used it though.

Zeon: If you can use a hardware firewall if at all possible. If you need remote extensions the Yealink phones have OpenVPN in them - never used it though.


While I agree, and many routers have good firewalls, the ones that dont iptables is perfectly fine.  Afterall most of them are using busybox with iptables under the hood anyway!

As Zeon says remote extensions, yealink is great, just a shame the T22P's and other "smaller phones" by yealink don't support openvpn and you have to get the larger/more expensive ones.
