I have tried having my asterisk machine call my mobile and connect the calls for incoming calls from select numbers, but with all the dsl latency and choking of the upstream, things were not pretty.

Is there any way of having asterisk get the italk servers to transfer the call to my mobile in a way that then takes my dsl connection out of the equation? I don't want to use the italk call forward since I want some control over who gets thru to me.

Thanks.

If your iTalk hits your Asterisk box via a DSL connection, and you dont have another internet connect, and dont want iTalks call forwarding at a network level, you are out of luck.

I suggest trying a QoS router.

I am on Go Large, and have no problems with call quality - even when coming in on a pure SIP trunk, and out to my mobile...

Well technically it is possible, using the SIP "REFER" request, but I've heard Asterisk doesn't do this properly :(

How do atas and soft phones handle it when you transfer a call to somewhere else? (in fact I dont even know how to initiate a transfer on my crappy zyxel ata) Is that the refer thing that you are talking about?

I dont see how 2 sip trunks connected on an adsl connection can be fine with all that latency. I was constantly talking over the other person like a 1980's international call (or a Chinese calling card call to the UK - same problem) -

Ideally I would like to present a menu with the option to transfer to mobile only available to certain people, but having it immediately forward for some callers would be a passable alternative if there is a weakness in asterisk.

of course if there is some other soft pabx that can do what I want there, then I can put that on the outside handling calls instead of asterisk.
