I have two problems. The first is that when I dial my number from a phone on the Internet or any phone outside my LAN, Asterisk does not respond in any way, which means somehow my system is not picking up the fact that there's an incoming call to it.

The second problem is that I thought I'd try an internal phone to see if I could get the hello-world stuff working at the least. I thought I'd try Zoiper, but none of the download buttons at https://www.zoiper.com/en/voip-softphone/download/current did anything when clicked, so I set up a spare line on a Yealink TA33 phone that is connected to another much much older Asterisk implementation running a piece of amateur radio gear called Allstar. The version of Asterisk used in the Allstar project is ancient--like 1.4 or 1.6--and the configuration syntax and options are quite different, so I didn't get lulled into thinking I'd just clone that configuration on my newer Asterisk implementation.

The "Definitive Guide" shows everything about adding phones as SQL statements, so I made some educated guesses as to what to put into pjsip.conf. Something's obviously wrong because the phone won't authenticate (see below).

Here's how I set it up in pjsip.


type = endpoint
transport = transport-udp
context = phones
disallow = all
allow = ulaw
; allow=g729                 ; uncomment if you support g729
auth = yealink
aors = yealink

Here's how I set it up in extensions:

exten => 101,1,Dial(PJSIP/yealink)

Here's the error I get on the Asterisk console:

[May 23 13:42:56] NOTICE[45189]: res_pjsip/pjsip_distributor.c:676 log_failed_request: Request 'REGISTER' from '"Steve" <sip:Steve@>' failed for '' (callid: 0_1554187534@ - Failed to authenticate

What did I omit?
