Again I find myself unable to dial out, looking at sip show registry it shows as registration sent. calls show as congestion when I try to dial but thats what it does when the internet is down so I dont believe it.

Last time this happened it started to work again ok, my attmpts at restarting asterisk, restarting the computer, restarting the router were unsucessful.

I am about to start on a restarting binge now, but has anyone else seen issues with it today at all? I dont really notice it as I don't make many calls and I have incoming fowarded to my mobile at all times since that means one less thing to carry around the property and end up out of range when it rings like happens with a cordless.

2talk and my other provider is working sweet as, and nothing has changed in forever. Unlike 2talk there is nothing on the italk site to show that I am registered or not so I dont even know if they are seeing the registration etc.

You may have tried this already, but take your asterisk server offline and try connecting to your ITalk line using the software phone that is linked on their site.... if that is not working call their tech support number (from a mobile phone or you will be on hold for hours) and get them to sort it..... if the soft phone works, then look to your asterisk installation.

I realise this may be obvious to you, but I wanted to ensure the basics were covered before I try to help you under the hood of asterisk.

Maybe you can do a little more diagnosis on your end. Yes maybe "rebooting everything" may fix the problem but really you should look at the root cause first.

# asterisk -r
sip show registry

or maybe

tcpdump port 5060

and make a call and see why its failing (or even trying)
