I have been trying to get a sip client working on my android phone to have a play with but can only get to connect to my PBX via wireless, it won't register on 3G

I am not too worried about call quality at this stage as it is just a test to see which products work,

Does anyone know a work around for this issue as I can't find anything about it but suspect it is Vodafone blocking sip ports on there cellular service, I have thought about changing ports on my router and PBX to see if that has any bearing on it but I assume if vodafone are blocking the service they will have thought of this and still block the traffic

all seems a bit strange maybe it is an android thing,

just trying the android built in sip client and it keeps complaining about no route to host

guess I am going to be having some fun with this one

might get my hands on an iphone to test it with

Thanks

Some Android ROMS will not allow SIP over 3g. I think it was disabled by default in Gingerbread. You may have to look at your ROM as I would say that is the issue.

Also have you confirmed that the server/PBX is accessible remotely by trying a softphone on a PC or something?

yeah PBX is working a treat remotely from external extensions and softphones,

my phone is gingerbread but from what I read it was only the native SIP client which doesn't run over 3g, and you need to run another SIP client

I only got it as I was running windows phone 7 and no one has created any apps for it, and not to mention it was a piece of rubbish that was more controlling than life itself,

Um yeah glad I got the windows phone thing off my chest

Use direct.vodafone.net.nz as an apn. This is not firewalled.

That didn't work either,

I am wondering I have a really old sim card that is about 10 years old, maybe it just doesn't cut the mustard any more or wouldn't that matter?

Alittle off topic but make sure these are really well locked down, otherwise you may find a whole stack of unauthorised calls, and a large bill from your ITSP.

I have them all pretty well locked down and I am going to use no default ports once I get the system ironed out, only just started playing with voip, it is certainly interesting learning all the bits that bite you

Up until 2 weeks ago I've been using the native Gingerbread sip client (in an Overcome ROM) to connect to Slingshot's iTalk.
Had been working fine for nearly 2 years and have only stopped as everyone I spoke to on that line is now using Viber.

The Miui ROM for my X5 doesn't allow 3g SIP but the CM7 ROM does. It is buried in one of the libs somewhere to enable it....

Doesn't matter what ports you use. If you have any public facing SIP device it WILL very quickly have bots attempting to hack it. If you don't have it secured appropiately you will get hacked. End of story.
