I realise this has been talked about before on this forum but the problem has never been resolved.

I have been using Asterisk for over a year. I was using it with iTalk originally but when their stability and customer service got the better of me I moved to 2Talk. However soon we will be moving to a new house with fibre and switch to Snap Plus because it was included in the price of fibre.

Naively I expected connecting the Asterisk server would be simple. I have read and tried some of the settings from Snap voip without FritzBoxitey and I am experiencing the same problems.

I have discovered from the Snap Plus web interface they they are using a Metaswitch Networks solution. After googling this I found the following Asterisk configuration infomation Asterisk How to connect to Metaswitch however this has been of no use. I am not seeing the 401 with the realm as they suggest you will. I just get a 403 forbidden with every password combination I can think of.

If anyone has any suggestions of what to try next they would be greatly appreciated. Alternatively if anyone has a Fritzbox and fibre that can get a Wireshark dump of the Frizbox connecting to the SIP server I would be incredibly grateful as at this stage I will have to buy a Fritzbox and sell it on Trade Me afterwards.

Thanks,
Niall

After getting a Fritzbox I have managed to work out the required settings.

Note this is not everything you need to get Asterisk working. This is mearly the settings to get Asterisk working with Snap and other configuration is required. There are guides on the internet on how to set it up.

The following is what I have in my users.conf for Asterisk. Replace 012345678 with your phone number.

[012345678]
type=friend
realm=connect1.plus.snap.net.nz
host=connect1.plus.snap.net.nz
username=012345678
md5secret=196dbf207649f3a93d09881ba3b01785
trunkname=Snap
context=DID_012345678
hasexten=no
hasiax=no
hassip=yes
registeriax=no
registersip=yes
trunkstyle=voip
insecure=invite
videosupport=no
fromuser=012345678
authuser=012345678
ignoresdpversion=yes
defaultexpiry=3600
disallow=all
allow=alaw,ulaw,gsm

To generate your MD5 secret you need to MD5 hash your phone number, the realm and your password in that order and separated by colons.

Example:
Phone Number: 012345678
Realm: connect1.plus.snap.net.nz
Password: password

The string to hash using the previous values would be "012345678:connect1.plus.snap.net.nz:password", without quotes. Hashing that string with MD5 results in "196dbf207649f3a93d09881ba3b01785", without quotes.

To create the hash use a online generator such as Miracle Salad's or use md5sum command under Linux as follows.

 

echo -n "012345678:connect1.plus.snap.net.nz:password" | md5sum

I forgot to add one setting.

fromdomain=connect1.plus.snap.net.nz

Add the from domain setting below the realm=connect1.plus.snap.net.nz.
