We are getting hammered by calls from --6428  and --6128 phone numbers, literally a call every five minutes or so which is making the phone line unusable.  Unfortunately the numbers also change


We are with 2Talk.  We can flat out ban all calls but then why have a phone number.


Is there any way to can phone calls by prefix?

You can ban individual numbers on 2talk can’t you? Given it a big text field you could use excel or something to create the entire range

Have you confirmed the calls are definitely originating (to you) from 2talk? Eg, are they showing up in the 2talk call records?

If your SIP device has as public IP address, or has it's port 5060 exposed to the public internet via pin-hole through NAT in another device then the calls could be coming direct. It not an uncommon scenario when you're exposed and you get discovered. There is no need to expose 5060 for 2talk (or other providers) to work, but sometimes people do without realising it isn't needed.

What @speed said. Are you sure your SIP endpoint is not exposed on the Internet?

Not exposed. The records are in the 2Talk logs.




I've scraped the logs and added them to the black list but the idea of using an excel sheet is tempting.




I'm looking into :


I really would like to use:    their robo radio is funny. Its like Lenny but with more options, voices, scenarios etc.




We got to the point we were hit every minutes for a short patch. Black listing from the scraped list helped. Who ever it is are complete ....<deleted by censor>




Thanks for the ideas .
