I'll take that under advisement, but Doug swears by IAX, I tried it, it worked, so until things break and break bad, I'll stick with that and try the recommended remedy, now recommended by two people.

Looking over your previous messages and the error you were receiving
(the one referring to extension 's') it looks like you had your account setting incorrectly configured. There is a "Device
type" dropdown that needs to be set to "IP PBX Server, Asterisk, or
Softswitch." If instead it is set to "ATA device, IP Phone or
Softphone" (the default) then it will be sent to the 's' extension
instead of the DID one. I captured a screenshot┬╣ from my account.

I created a account, acquired a DID, copy/pasted the
configuration samples┬▓, substituted my SIP Account User ID and
passwords, restarted Asterisk, and everything worked as expected.

I would never recommend new installs use IAX2, so if you envision this
moving beyond the toy/PoC stage I suggest you giving PJSIP another go.

Kind regards,
