Hi all,
I saw a post http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=40&topicid=73842&page_no=1 explaining how to enable these ports, most of the posts refer to configuration to 2talk

Does anyone know if you can use an internal asterisk box or does it have to be an external server?

What would be the point of using them when you can just use Asterisk natively?

Instead of going out and buying another ATA, it would make sense to use the ports in hardware you already own?

To use existing DECT phones without purchasing new ones, or purchase of an additional pap2t device.

I don't see why you couldn't you are just connecting to a SIP trunk. 2talk is just a flash Asterisk platform anyway

Just wanting to confirm if the configuration can use the private interfaces to an internal server, or if the SIP configuration expects to use the public interface for connection.

If you can I suspect it'll be a case of configuring an external public IP, with the SIP ALG and port forwarding enabled. Even then things may not working correctly (like trying to do this on a Cisco/Linksys box). The minute you enable the ALG you break lots of other stuff, typically that'll be your outbound SIP trunks.

I tried to do something like this a few years ago on a Linksys router with phone ports.
Turned out the ports could only register with a SIP provider across the external - WAN port, not the internal LAN ports.
The devices were designed primarily for service providers - aka your I(T)SP to provision the phone ports.
I ended up not using the phone ports on the router at all - simply supplied and configured an ATA to work with my LAN - side Asterisk server.

These days, I think it best to avoid analog phones altogether if possible. Use IP phones (both desk and portable - wifi).




kind regards Andrew TD

Thanks all for your replies, I guess it is a bit of an unknown until one tries it.  If anything be prepared for plan B to avoid too much grief. Cool


Cheers
