After changing the provisioning settings and submitting all changes I waited a few minutes and it didn't auto update. I reset the device and it picked up the new settings.

Tested and working so far:
Correct NZ dial tone - nice
Placed a call from each line to my mobile and it rang.

Tested and no longer working:
Rang each line from my mobile, the mobile gets sent to voicemail but the italk line keeps ringing for a long period of time before finally stopping.

EDIT: Also rang one italk line from the other with the same result.

Obviously this is a major problem!!

SPA2102




Software Version:
5.2.10
Hardware Version:
1.3.5(a)



 
2x italk lines

Hmm that's strange.

There is nothing in the SIP settings for each provider that I have changed, I'm a little puzzled as to how it could stop inbound calls. Do both lines show as registered in the main config menu?

Edit: You mention further up you have 2 italk lines but then say the iTalk one goes to VM. Are both lines iTalk? Are they in the same region or different regions?

You missed my earlier post, I had changed Auth Invite to yes as per Steve's blog post at the same time as I changed the provisioning settings.

Changing it back to No has the inbound calls working again.

Other test results:

Caller ID
Netgear SPH200D cordless phone shows as 06421xxxxxx
Philips VOIP433 cordless phone shows as 006421xxxxxx

Both phones are running as POTS cordless phones connected to the ATA.

Obviously only the Philips returns missed calls properly as the Netgear is not getting the right caller ID information. Both phones are telepermitted and purchased in NZ.

OT: Recommended codec?
Also OT: Should I be able to send an receive faxes?

You beat me to it. It was the only thing that could have affected things.

There is another setting in the ATA's that does a similair thing that locks down incoming SIP traffic to the IP of the registrar IP. Obviously iTalk are a little lax with their security for SIP INVITE messages.

This is under the Line settings and is "Restrict Source IP". Any chance you could try changing this to yes and letting me know whether this solves the issue?

I have changed Restrict Source IP to yes on both lines and inbound calls are fine.

With Restrict Source IP and Auth INVITE both set to yes calls are still sent to voicemail.

Have left Restrict Source IP on and Auth INVITE off.

Caller ID info is being sent as e164 cc+nsn, Steves config does not touch the CallerID and the only seeting will be the method used.

Codec, up to your VOIP provider and type of connection you have, better connections use g711, connections with latency and jitter, lower bandwidth use g729

As for Faxing once again up to your service provider and they the weay they have it configured in their network, not all faxing is created equal with different networks and the config parts of devices requires fine tuning to match network settings, 2talk don't have their own actual network and uses callplus network...so ask your provider.

Telepermit regulations specify that a device should insert the 0 or 00 as required. Telecom PSTN lines do not pass the 0 in the CID as it's merely an access code, not part of the phone number. Many phones have a menu option to specify whether the 0 should be inserted or not. There is nothing you can do in the device to change this. I know WxC do custom config files for people who have had issues with this and certain phones.

Codec depends entirely on your connection. ulaw and alaw offer the best voice quality but use around 87kbps in each direction for a voice call. G.729 uses around 1/2 that but only a slight reduction in voice quality.

Faxing is a whole different ballgame and ideally requires your VoIP provider supports T.38 - I have no idea if iTalk do or not.

Thanks for that.

Are we better with G711u or G711a here in NZ?

EDIT: Thanks Steve, will look in the phone's menu to see if this can be changed.

As for Caller ID, will changing the configuration of the ATA correct the behaviour on the Netgear phone, if so then continued discussion may be relevant to this thread.


Technically NZ uses alaw. ulaw is the ISDN codec used in the USA and Japan and alaw is used elsewhere. There is very little difference and if your VoIP provider supports both (as most so) there is no difference in what you use.

There is unfortunately no way to change the CID setup in the ATA. It just passes through what it sent to it.
