Having built the asterisk and downloaded/installed X-lite I seem to be getting nowhere fast configuring either to actually work. The sip.conf has all the settings recommended for both connections...and I have added a couple more with no change.
extemip=58.28.20.158
localnet=192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0
Can someone advise whether I am following a dead end trail or have I overlooked something?

To be completely honest what you have written won't get any replies because it's totally meaningless. What are your problems?

Is there any reason why you've deployed such an old version of Asterisk?

The aim is to build an asterisk onto a macbook for portability.
Not being a true geek and doing very little compiling since the days of dual floppy discs!!...
I have Googling around to find what presents as 'plug and play' options, and that is very little...and those that might have been at astmasters.net pointed at by voip-info.org/wiki/view are no longer working links.
The next best was to follow a probably very old recipe that seems to have worked for the most part from the same site.
So having got asterisk running/stopping I am now not certain it is connecting to wxcnz...and its probably not, neither can I connect to it from X-lite.
I have concluded that the macports I installed does not work with asterisk...as found in a post on forums.macrumours.
NOW, I am trying to get a copy of darwinports and will install asterisk 1.6...but portcode.com is a dead link from darwinports.com.
It's all up hill!

have you considered  trying a Virtual Machine with one of the asterisk distros
or a Linux VM and installing asterisk on it
it might save you a lot of headaches if you which to get something going to play about with
you can use virtualbox which is free.

My thinking was heading that way too.
Delay has been caused by work...which is goodLaughing. Also someone suggested why bother with asterisk...just go direct from VOIP phone app, but failed to suggest how without modem (which is precisely what I want to avoid). Do you have any particular linux distro in mind that is easy to set up and works 'out of the box'?

Just get xlite working would be a good as a 1st step.
Playing with asterisk after that with ever growing capability and bells/whistles for larger systems perhaps.

do you have an account with a VOIP SIP provider such as italk, 2talk etc.
you'll need one eventually of your going to play wiith VOIP and asterisk although you can use plain old POTS with astericks,  but were's the fun in that :). you won't be able to use POTS with a VM on a macbook, I don't tink asterisk have any POTS cards that fit notebooks
 
if you do have a SIP account  all you need to do is enter your VOIP providers SIP settings login and password etc in xlite
and you should be good to go. as long as you have a decent BB internet connection you'll have a phone 
network, traffic, QOS aside...conditions apply....Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions .....this post will self destruct....fine print..bla bla bla

Only prob with tribox is:-

trixbox quick install guide

Installing the ISO

Last Updated: 4-21-2009

Warning: installing this ISO will format your computer and erase your hard drive.
It will remove all partitions as soon at you boot the cd without confirming. If it happened you can TRY to recover partitions with TestDisk

So it will blow away the VMengine Linux, OSX, and windoze!
Not a good start....

try using tcpdump to see if your asterisk instance is talking out to us, you may need to enable the root account to do this, but do a command like this: tcpdump -i eth0 port 5060 and host pan.wxnz.net

where eth0 is your network adapter.  This should at least tell you if you are trying to communicate to us.

Cheers

Josh

thats just a starndard warning, if your booting normaly without using virtualizing software

you'll still get the warning but becasue your installing on a virtual machine it can't "blow" anything  away
unless you've done something wrong.
 
you should have "created" amother linux OS inside virtualbox with it's own virtual disk and told that OS
to boot from your trixbox CD and follow the OS setup

that's the whole point of virtualization being able to run muiplul OS's , otherwize virtulization would be pretty pionlless
