I wanted to see if I can move my accounts from an old box to a new Shuttle XS35-702 which has a fanless design, and an external power brick using 40W.  This is to lower my power costs.

I setup PIAF purple with freepbx 2.9, and the installation went well.

However, I can't see to stay registered with open VFX.  I also set up a free 2talk trunk and that is fine.
The error I get is that VFX registration timed out.  I've seen it register but then after 5 mins or so the registration is lost.  Even though the registration is lost, I can still call out, but can't receive calls.

With sip debug on I see the registration messages going out.  Not sure if the CLI is supposed to show any responses.

I guess it's something odd about my configuration Hard to determine why wiithout a way of debugging the sip messages.

Sounds like a firewall issue.

It's odd.  I stopped iptables, and then amportal stop for 15 mins in case it was some type of DOS protection being run by VFX.  Then restarted.  2talk registers but VFX does not.  So, I think this excludes a firewall issue.

Is the VFX line a SIP trunk? Or you just register like an extension? If it is set up for SIP trunking you want to do a SIP peer and not send the register stuff to them.

I know this is the case for 2Talk but don't know for sure about WxC.

SIP trunk.

I copied the settings exactly from my working old box to this new one.  One works, the other doesn't.
So, possibly a driver issue.  Going to do a reinstall on a P4 I found lying around to see what happens.

I've now replicated this issue on different hardware.  It seems to occur with freepbx 2.9 installation but not 2.8 which is then upgraded to 2.9.

Once I set the local network settings in Freepbx 2.9, within 5 mins I lose registration to VFX.  Nothing I do will bring the registration back, except occasinonally I see it come back after a reboot.  And then it is lost again.

If I remove the local network settings 192.168.10/ registration comes back immediately.  And has stayed up all night.  So, it seems to be a freepbx 2.9 bug with VFX.

More problems.  This on a shuttle SX35.  I was seeinng a lot of UDP checksum errors and so I downloaded and recompiled the latest driver for the NIC, but what is happening now is that although the box remains registered, VFX can't find it.  So, when I call the number Neil says the connection can't be made.  I then call out from the box, and then immediately call in, and this time I can make the incoming call.

Not sure if it's a linux driver issue, or, something else.  I'd like to try a USB NIC.  Anyone got suggestions on something local and suitable for Centos 6.2 ?  Or, is there an easier fix?

Fixed by setting verify=yes in the sip trunk
