Re: [asterisk-users] STIR/SHAKEN

2021-03-11 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere

The "inbound piece" is "what do I do with the tag information"?

Should I find a way to present the fact that a call has an A rating?

Should I offer to block calls with a C rating?

It would be great to see asterisk be able to unpack this stuff and have 
it available as a dialplan variable and in the CDRs.

Greg/Doug, like many folks here, we use LCR.  So, the terminating 
carrier is not necessarily the one that issued us the telephone 
numbers.  So, they will not sign it or simply cannot sign it.  
Remember that a very limited number of companies can actually sign the 
calls; the rest have to buy it from these 'Service Providers'.


And there is another situation - the company you purchase your numbers 
from and the company you place your calls through may be different and 
both may not be able to sign your calls. Again, a very limited number 
of service providers that can actually sign your calls.  So what do 
you do in that scenario?  You have to find a Service Provider that can:


1.  Verify you own that telephone number(s).
2.  Sign your calls.
3.  Provide you with the technical means to do so.

So, that's that...  I hope this makes sense.

To be honest, that is the logic we ended up with, and are dumping our 
LCR.  The savings aren't worth the headache.  We don't have 1M numbers, 
but we have a significant number.  We can't quite get down to one 
carrier (and don't really want to), but we can keep outbound calls on 
the carrier that "owns" them, and not worry about this.

1:  1M DID’s? Then I would go straight out and say you are a phone 
operator, and then getting your own STIR/SHAKEN certificate shouldn’t 
be a problem at all. Thats a massive amount of numbers, 
unrealistically many numbers for any company ever except for those 
that are a phone operator.


2: For me, its seems like hunting for nano-cents. I checked around 
when I got my DID and call account for my own personal use, and the 
prices aren’t that different. Its really not worth the effort for what 
you save. Checked with several operators and the prices are almost the 
same per minute, its like one operator has like 0.016 per minute and 
another has 0.014 … not gonna save much on that. Might save like 1$-2$ 
per month on choosing the latter operator.


3: Why? Consolidiate all your agreements to 1 single operator that 
handles everything, and everything will be so much simpler. Then you 
are simply a trunk ccustomer to that particular operator, no need to 
handle all this with signing and certificates and everything..


To save a little tiny nano-cent from each minute of call..

Hi,

I wanted to add some comments to Sebastian's response:

1- When you have a lot of DIDs, you can't just "port" them over from 
company1 to company2. Try to have 1M or so DIDs and ask if you can 
just port them. No no, not that simple. There is a process that a lot 
of times is not worth the cost/risk/etc.


2- What happens if company1 has very good pricing for DIDs, but 
extremely high rates for placing outbound calls, and company2 has 
super aggressive pricing for the destinations you use most, but sells 
DIDs very expensive? Mix and match? :)


3- What do you do, when instead of having 1 outbound carrier, you have 
several 50?


At the end I think you are mistakenly comparing apples to oranges, 
your DID provider has nothing to do with your outbound carrier, can 
the DID provider also give you outbound calling? Most likely, but that 
doesn't mean that the best way to go is to route outbound calls via 
the carrier that is providing you DIDs.

I reallt don’t understand why people simply use the same operator
to terminate your calls, which also provide DIDs for you.

Then you don’t need to touch this at all, your carrier will do all
the STIR/SHAKEN handling for you, you are just a PBX customer.

And then the operator then simply limits your account to only
present your DID as outgoing number.

Seems to be a unneccesary complicated solution just to have your
numbers at company 1 and have your call termination at company 2.

So fricking unneccessary.

What I know there is requirements of number portability, so as
long as company 2 can handle DIDs (ergo ”own” DIDs) you should be
able to move your DIDs from company 1 to company 2 – then company
2 owns your DIDs.

I wonder if you could step back and explain the big picture, as
I'm not
really following this.   As I understand it:

  usually asterisk is used as a pbx

  STIR/SHAKEN is a protocol run between carriers to prove the
authority
  to use the claimed callerid

  when someone gets service from a carrier and connects to it from
  asterisk, I would expect the carrier to basically filter the claimed
  callerid to be from the set of values recorded with your account as
  legit, and for the carrier to do the STIR/SHAKEN authentication.

So I wonder if your asterisk instance is connecting to the PSTN as a
top-level carrier, or, more likely, I am confused in some way.

Greg,

I think this is the case for quite alot of those here.

For me though, I just manage the on premise PBX and my carrier handles 
the STIR/SHAKEN part.

Hi,

There are issues for those of us that use multiple upstream carriers for 
call termination, with LCR for example.  If you send your calls out the 
same provider that supplies your inbound DID, your calls should get the 
"A" rating and your callers should have no issues. At present if I send 
calls out a provider that does NOT handle the DID in the caller ID 
field, it gets a "B" rating.  I don't think this will pose a problem for 
the forseeable future - I don't see carriers marking these as "spam",  
they just won't get the ultra-special "secure" mark.


Also good to note the upcoming deadline does NOT mean call blocking, 
just call tagging.  The blocking bit will be up to the end user, though 
I could see phones shipping with default settings that may do so.


Basically we can't do LCR anymore.  Outbound calls are locked to the 
provider that gave us the DID.  I'm not sure that's really a bad thing, 
its less headache than for us to try to become a signing authority.


I think the whole thing is still very fluid.  Didn't even mention call 
forwarding issues.

Re: [asterisk-users] Get a SHAKEN Identity Token (Alexander Perkins)

2021-01-25 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Thanks Joshua, that was warranted IMO. I have to admit I am curious 
about his solution, though, and maybe we can turn this into a discussion 
about how we are handling STIR/SHAKEN collectively.


Our biggest issue is the fact that we use (our own) LCR to choose 
outbound routes for calls in real-time.  An outbound call could end up 
on any of several upstream providers, not necessarily the one that 
"owns" the DID that is making the outbound call.  Because of this we 
cannot rely on our upstreams to be the originating carriers - they won't 
be able to sign for calls from DID numbers they have no record of. We 
aren't alone in this, and Bandwidth.com is making noise about this issue 
and the "forward" problem, where we bounce a call to another number, and 
the original token info is lost.  I'm pretty sure this lands us in the 
"need to be an originating provider and generate crypt tokens".  I'm 
only just beginning diving into what that entails.


So how does this guy get around it?  It sounds to me like he is offering 
to sign calls for whoever, which IMO totally defeats the purpose.  So if 
I am some spammer and find my calls are rejected, I can just get him to 
sign them for me?  If I were him I would get a bunch of lawyers ready 
for when he becomes responsible for what they end up doing.  Isn't that 
the whole idea?

"I have a commercial solution that works for any version of
Asterisk, if
interested contact me at venefax at the Google mail service."

Fixed. If you're going to post a commercial solution on a
non-commercial
forum, at least be up front about it.


Greetings all,

Just so everyone is aware I previously gave a final warning on 
commercial solicitation on the asterisk-users mailing list to this 
individual[1]. As they've continued to do so I've removed them from 
the mailing list. You are free to communicate with them directly.


Cheers,

Re: [asterisk-users] Asterisk registrations - state?

Hm, thanks for the clarification, this confirms what I suspected.

Can anyone suggest an alternative application I could sensibly use alongside
Asterisk in a production environment to achieve this (I'm specifically looking
for a way to maintain presence information for a Busy Lamp Field, and to get
notifications about Voicemail events).

I'm aware of both SIPp https://github.com/SIPp/sipp and SipSak
https://github.com/nils-ohlmeier/sipsak, however these are (to me at least)
testing scenario tools designed for "short term" use to place and receive
calls, rather than maintaining long-term subscriptions to SIP accounts,
waiting for notifications of events, so I'm somewhat wary about considering
them for use in a production environment (by which I mean I'm looking for
something which can subscribe to a few tens of SIP accounts (across several
servers) and get the event notifications for those accounts, over a period of
days and weeks, and pass them to my display application in almost any
reasonable form).


Any ideas out there?



It sounds to me like you just need a reasonable SIP softphone that can 
register with multiple SIP accounts (they all do) and show presence for 
the extension registered (I think most want you to pay for this feature 
versus the freebie client).


Why run asterisk?

Am I missing something?

Re: [asterisk-users] Multiple IP addresses and using same IP for outbound calls as inbound

2020-10-30 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere
I didn't want to post this because its kind of ugly, but we *did* 
actually do it a number of years ago to get around this issue with chan_sip.


Our original architecture was based on LXC, and we had large servers 
running hundreds of containers, each running asterisk.  The "host" ran 
asterisk too, as the gateway for all the container instances.


We once used two of those containers to run asterisk on specific host 
interfaces (one instance bridged to one nic, the other to the other).  
The host asterisk would route calls out one container or the other, with 
the effect you are looking for...

Hello,

We have an Asterisk server with two public IP
addresses, let's say 1.1.1.1 and 2.2.2.2. Normally
calls come in to 1.1.1.1 and are bridged with a
call dialled from Asterisk to an external
destination. The external destination sees the SIP
packet as coming from 1.1.1.1 and the media
address in the SDP is 1.1.1.1, which is great.

However if we receive a call in to 2.2.2.2 then
the call dialled from Asterisk to an external
destination still comes from 1.1.1.1, whereas we
want it to come from 2.2.2.2. The source of any
dialled call (the IP packet and the SDP media
address) should be the same as the address the
related inbound call was received to.

For example:
INVITE received to 1.1.1.1:5060
<http://1.1.1.1:5060> -> Asterisk dials
destinat...@termination.com
<mailto:destinat...@termination.com> -> INVITE
sent from 1.1.1.1:5060 <http://1.1.1.1:5060> to
termination.com <http://termination.com>
INVITE received to 2.2.2.2:5060
<http://2.2.2.2:5060> -> Asterisk dials
destinat...@pstn.com <mailto:destinat...@pstn.com>
-> INVITE sent from 2.2.2.2:5060
<http://2.2.2.2:5060> to pstn.com <http://pstn.com>

Does anyone know how this can be achieved?


If termination.com <http://termination.com> is only on
1.1.1.1 and pstn.com <http://pstn.com> is only on
2.2.2.2, create 2 transports, one specifically bound
to 1.1.1.1, transport-1.1.1.1 for instance, and
another to 2.2.2.2 <http://2.2.2.2>:
transport-2.2.2.2.  The names aren't important as long
as you can tell the difference.  Then explicitly
configure endpoint termination.com
<http://termination.com>'s "transport" parameter to
"transport-1.1.1.1" and pstn.com <http://pstn.com>'s
"transport" parameter to "transport-2.2.2.2".   In
your dialplan, you can see which endpoint the call
came in on, and route it out the same endpoint.

There is a big confusion here about Stir Shaken. It is NOT a
provider issue. Un fact, all providers are whasing their hands and
modifying their swihtches to pass-through the Signature. They
cannot sign the call because then the become the responsible party
for the call before the FCC, and liable for any illegal call.

I think this, being the basis of your whole argument, is the fallacy.  
S/S is forcing people to take responsibility, for sure, but carriers 
won't just let their customers leave because they don't want to sign 
calls.  It will force them to make sure they know who their customers 
are, and make it impossible for those customers to escape consequences 
if they misbehave.


We supply dialtone to a large number of businesses.  We buy DIDs from 
carriers and resell them.  It *may* be up to us to get our direct 
customers' calls signed, but at the moment we are in talks with our DID 
providers to do so on our behalf.  In the next year I have no doubt if 
there are niches to be filled in providing CA or outright 
signing-as-a-service, businesses will be jumping out of the woodwork to 
provide it.  I'm not panicking yet.


  I am the only game in the world for Stir-Shaken and Asterisk. I know 
it sounds arrogant but it is literally true. If you need to sign your 
calls to get through, with Asterisk, you need to connect to my 
service. I am an approved Service Provider from the FCC. If you keep 
thinking this is not happening, it is, and your business will 
disappear overnight.


Its not just arrogant, its silly, and you have a serious branding 
problem.  If you really have "The Answer" you should work on getting 
yourself a domain name at least.  Cease the panic-inducing posts and 
come up with some reasonable fodder you could link to in your signature 
or something (like when you help with some thread), so you would at 
least contribute to the list at the same time.


Some of us may actually be interested in what you have to offer if you 
changed the way you were presenting it.  Who is going to base their 
business on some list guy with a gmail address?

I may have missed this originally - are you saying you have trouble when

I didn't see my post with the graphs of inter-packet latency make it to 
the list (moderator?), I think the images were too large.  Recall that 
clearly showed half of the packets coming inbound from DT were 
*missing*, which confirms your audio experience.  I don't think that

so far.  If that is also happening inter-VLAN, something is seriously 
wrong on the Pi.


If you can reproduce this can you send me a few more packet traces, from 
each of the VLAN interfaces involved?

And some other information, too.

I checked the xDSL-statistics of my DSL-Modem (which use the BananaPI to

So it seems, that my connection is about the half of the theorical one...

I think, I must call Deutsche Telekom, but since I'll change my contract
at 18.06., I'll wait some days. Then I'll have a "business" contract,
and I hope I don't must speak with someone that can just say "you have

Try to limit the traffic to just your phone call tests (to reduce the

Hi Jeff,


We are working on a product to analyze pcap files of VoIP calls.  So far

inside of your Banana Pi and send me the pcap files, I would be happy to
run it through our analyzer as further information for you.  If it shows
DTK isn't sending packets when it should, that will be obvious, and you
can send to them as solid evidence of their guilt :)

Thank you for your offer.
Could you say me which options I should pass to tcpdump to get all
information you need?

Yes, sure, please use (replace with correct interface names):

   sudo tcpdump -i eth0 -s 0 -w /tmp/test0.pcap &
   sudo tcpdump -i eth1 -s 0 -w /tmp/test1.pcap &


Try to limit the traffic to just your phone call tests (to reduce the 
size of the capture files).  Make all your tests, then:


   sudo killall tcpdump
   tar cvzf /tmp/tests.tgz /tmp/test?.pcap


Send /tmp/tests.tgz to me by email, or leave somewhere I can download.  
I'll run the analysis tonight and send the results to the list.


Cheers,

Beyond that, are you certain you aren't taxing the Banana Pi?  It really 
*should* be able to handle a single call while handling your LAN's 
routing/firewall tasks, but you are probably skating the edge.  The 
results of the above might point out that the Pi isn't *sending* packets 
it should be, or sending them way late, in which case the issue is 
actually your hardware.

Hi

So, I got a phone (Elmeg IP290) from a collegue and tested it...


What I'll do tomorrow with a test phone is:

1) connecting it to my Asterisk and try to make a call
2) connecting it directly to the servers of Deutsche Telekom (using my
network) and try to make a call

Absolutly *no changes* on the behaviour compared with my Thomsons...

I try to summarize:

1) Phones are not the problem, since 3 phones of 2 different
companies/model have the same issue.
2) Asterisk seems not to be the problem, too, since I have the same
behaviour if I connect to phone directly to the server of Deutsche Telekom.
3) Traffic shaping seems not to be the problem, too, since I tried to
deactivate it.
4) The problem happens *only* on active call, not by voicemail.
4a) To test it I read a text and my partner just listen it, and then he
read a text and I listen it. *No* simulaneously speak!
5) A *single call* (since I couldn't reproduce it anymore), made using
my Android phone as SIP-client connected to my Asterisk, had not the
problem. Any other try to call someone using my mobile phone via SIP had
the problem.

I could *not* test connecting to the server of Deutsche Telekom using
the Internet connection of someone other, since Telekom bounds my
VoIP-login to my IP.

I really think, the problem should be by Deutsche Telekom...

What is your opinion? Do you see some other tests I should try?

Thanks a lot

Re: [asterisk-users] CLI color prompt

2020-05-31 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere

Hi,

I had posted this a few hours ago, but got caught in moderation for 
size.  I trimmed down the pic and attached.


I am on an Ubuntu 16 workstation, in an Ubuntu terminal window, ssh'ed 
to the PBX (amazon instance).  You can see my term type matches yours.


I really don't know why yours doesn't work.  Perhaps you can tell us 
what your terminal emulator is, what you are running it on, etc.  
Whatever it is, it isn't properly interpreting the escape codes for 
xterm-256color.  You could possibly try some different terminal types, 
but this is an odd situation if the remote shell (is it remote?) can't 
determine your termtype.  This is pretty ancient code.

And now I have colored prompts at the Asterisk command line, so I can

because of your question, I now have colored prompts.

Do I have to do something to make sure that ASTERISK_PROMPT lives
through a reboot?

I would add the export to .bashrc/.zshrc or whatever shell you are using

why does it not work for me?
My terminal clearly supports 256 colors.

I'm pretty sure that means your are using a non-color capable terminal,

Hello Doug,

Works great

I do this as well, but I also do a database lookup to see if the number
is on our speeddial list and if so, pass the call directly on without
the IVR prompts.

I do something similar for calls without caller ID, but I was still
getting robocalls with spoofed caller ID. I have now changed the dialplan
slightly so that the first time people call they are asked to dial 1.
After the first call, they are added to a known caller list and get
straight through, and any robocalls at that point are blacklisted
manually. I have found that most robocallers spoof the Caller ID so
rarely call from the same number twice. It means that legitimate
callers who cannot dial 1 just have to dial again to get through to
the phones - there is a recorded message telling them to dial 1 or
call back. I haven't had a robocall since!

The hardest thing about this was extracting all the numbers of
previous callers from the CDR and adding it to the Previous_Callers
AstDB for the lookup. I didn't want to make existing callers go through
the initial learning process.

[asterisk-users] Delayed RTP start

2019-07-24 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere

Hi,

I am debugging an issue that unfortunately involves two NAT instances - 
the firewall at our customer site, and the firewall in front of their 
Amazon instance.


I have an HTEK phone at the customer site registering to the public 
address of the Amazon instance running asterisk (and FreePBX).  This 
seems to work fine, and it can call local services (like fpbx *65 to 
read back the extension) with no problems.


If it tries to make an outbound outside call, the remote phone (my cell 
for example) rings, I answer it, but there is no audio in either 
direction for nearly exactly 16 seconds, every time.  Then audio starts 
in both directions without issue.


I did a packet trace on the phone itself and see 16 seconds of outbound 
RTP with no inbound, then suddenly RTP in both directions until the call 
ends.


I did a packet trace on the asterisk side and see the call setup, then 
sixteen seconds of nothing (??), then RTP starts in both directions.


In the asterisk console I see this bit of interestingness:

[2019-07-24 13:21:02] DEBUG[1890]: chan_sip.c:29923

So my main question is, what would cause a sixteen second delay before 
the codec could be decided?


This is Asterisk 13.25.0 on the customer Amazon instance... the "ast01" 
peer is ours also - one of our external gateways, also running 13.25.0.

I've seen this happen when web-based provisioning is used, I have
seen attempts to download configuration files off of my
provisioning server increase in frequency over the last two years.

The 'Hacker' will do a get on /polycom /cisco /yealink /aastra
/mitel etc, If they get a valid response they will start
enumerating mac addresses

/polycom/0004F2018101.cfg
/polycom/0004F2018102.cfg
...
/polycom/0004F2018109.cfg

Then they will use any credentials gained in the download attack
to place calls, registering as needed.

Re: [asterisk-users] DUNDI with minimal features

2019-03-27 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


You could use IMAP storage for your voicemail to solve this I think.  
Have both PBXes use the same storage.


I don't know if this works for you or not, but you might consider a 
single PBX and just combine the two offices under one installation.  We 
do this for a lot of our customers (actually we host their PBX, but all 
the offices' phones connect to it).  If both offices have good 
connectivity, and especially if you have a QoS enabled VPN between them, 
this could work well.


Cheers,

Great document thank you!  I will have to experiment with this on a couple of 
test systems.

Something I'm not clear on, if a user receives a voicemail on one of the PBX's, 
does DUNDI handle retrieving the message from the right system?  Or if the user 
tries to retrieve a voicemail on PBX A but the message was left on PBX B, they 
won't hear it.

I have 2 PBX's, one in each office (say one in New York, one in
Boston).  I have mobile users that can show up at either office and
connect their soft phones.



Is there a very simple DUNDI config available which describes how to
set this up?

Also, can I have the same outbound trunks setup in each office, so
that calls don't have to route across the NY-BOS connection to get out
to the PSTN?



Thanks, Janet

Not sure how relevant on newer versions, but yes, pretty easy to setup.

Re: [asterisk-users] Digium G100

2019-02-15 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Definitely getting the caller id info - see below.  Its just ending up 
in the wrong field.  The caller's number is ending up in the "name" 
field, and the "number" field is getting our G100's SIP peer name.


Its not clear if it is being offered that way to the asterisk server 
that is accepting the call from the G100, or if the asterisk server is 
mangling it before sending it on to the customer...  I can do some 
dialplan foo I suppose to answer this question, but was really hoping 
someone would say "oh I had that problem..." :)

You might confirm you're getting CallerID from the PRI in the call

If you need CallerID preserved from the PRI (Like the served PBX sends 
multiple calling numbers based on end user station) then you'll likely 
need to fix it on whatever the G100 is serving with said PRI.


If it's all one number anyways, You can just blanket overwrite it from 
the G100 dialplan (I think it was in outbound routes). Or ultimately, 
In the asterisk instance during receive before shooting it upstream.

*Subject*: [asterisk-users] Digium G100
Hi,

We recently dumped a Xorcom box that was no end of trouble and replaced
with a Digium G100.  PRI came right up, and we have been using it fairly
flawlessly for several months now, with one caveat.  Calls that arrive
from the PRI are sent to the asterisk instance (13.23.1, chan_sip), then
routed by the dialplan to various other gateways or upstream providers.
When the call finally lands on a phone somewhere, the caller ID
information has become corrupted, though in a predictable way.

The CID number is replaced with the SIP trunk name of our G100 gateway.

The CID name is replaced by the callers phone number.

This is problematic for a number of reasons - we have lost the caller ID
name, if provided, completely.  There is a lot of confusion from our
customers asking "what does riisegw mean?!", and if they try to return a
missed phone call or recall something from their history, their phones
(Yealink models almost exclusively) try to dial to "riisegw" since that
was actually in the number field.

I haven't tried to dig into this on our asterisk instance yet, was
hoping this is something silly someone could direct us to, or perhaps
someone from Digium can pitch in.  I suppose I should have some kind of
support with the G100... have never tried to actually call Digium before.

Cheers,

Jeff LaCoursiere

[asterisk-users] Xorcom PRI

2018-11-12 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


I've been struggling for a few weeks now with the local telco trying to 
bring up a trunk that has been down for a year (hurricanes in the 
caribbean).  Box is a Dell R710, 16G RAM, Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, Dahdi 
2.10.2-rc1, asterisk 13.23.1.  Xorcom Astribank w/ one T1/E1/PRI module, 
plugged into a USB 2.0 port on the Dell.  All of this was working 
*before* the storms last year with the same hardware/versions.


Dahdi sees the astribank and loads firmware without issue:

   root@astbeach:~# dmesg | grep -i dahdi

   Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

The dahdi drivers are loaded, and the T1 layer has no alarms... telco 
also reports the line itself is "UP":

asterisk chan_dahdi shows the T1 up with no alarms:

astbeach*CLI> dahdi show status

Codi Options  LBO
Xorcom XPD [usb:X1067719].1: T1  OK  0 0  0  ESF 
B8ZS  0 db (CSU)/0-133 feet (DSX-1)


but the PRI is down:

astbeach*CLI> pri show spans
PRI span 1/0: Down, Active

I'm not really sure where to take it from here, and the telco has even 
less of a clue.  They brought out some gear that they hooked up to our 
cabling for the T1 and pretty quickly established a PRI, then placed and 
received test calls over it.  At that point they washed their hands of 
it, and logged as a "CPE issue"!


Could it be that the storms damaged the Xorcom unit in such a way that 
the T1 can be up without alarms but the PRI signaling is broken?  Seems 
unlikely.


I have included a few relevant config files below.  Note that the 
cabling wasn't in place when we ran dahdi_genconf, which is why it shows 
red alarm.  There is no red alarm now.

Thats till doesn't change the SIP header.  Basically they want to send a 
RE INVITE and authenticate my DID number.  But my DID number does not 
have a peer or user entry in sip.conf.  Perhaps I am answering my own 
question, but is that the only way this is going to work?

There is noone to be "told" to do such work. Asterisk is an open source

all of us working together that helps to improve Asterisk. Like
everything in life we all have our own priorities and responsibilities,
which differ, that drive what we all work on and have an interest in. As
for providing direction for doing the work yourself - this is not
something that anyone has looked into or planned so there's no real
direction to give. You have to pick somewhere to start, dig, and figure
out what needs to be done. If you have specific questions then the
asterisk-dev mailing list would be the best place to discuss such things
since that is where developer talk occurs.

Beyond that, what makes you think forcing asterisk not to proxy RTP 
would be the best way forward for all that use asterisk?  My company 
DEPENDS on it, and direct RTP would simply not function in our 
environment.  Please don't do that.  Having it be configurable is 
obviously a good thing.

Don't get me wrong - he should absolutely do that.  Just offering an

mention if the 13 he was trying to compile was certified. Why he would

It seems to me Audiocodes MP-112 is trimming anything that is longer than

Audiocodes has a default dialplan of XXX, which will trim your dialing

I have a voicemail broadcast AGI that has been running fine for years - it
collects extensions and then EXECs the Voicemail app, like this:

EXEC Voicemail \"%s\"

(%s is the extension list like AAA etc)

This works fine, but after leaving the message and pressing "#", I just get
"Thank you" and a hangup.  I would like to have the option to review,
re-record, or cancel.  It isn't clear how to enable this option via EXEC.  I
tried:

EXEC Voicemail \"%s,review=yes\"

Any clues?

[asterisk-users] multiple outbound invites

2017-02-22 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Hello,

I have two upstream providers we use for US termination.  The dialplan 
sends calls out the "primary" and if that fails for specific reasons, it 
sends the same call out the "secondary". This has worked well for us 
when we are lazy about keeping balances up, for example.


Starting a few days ago ALL calls sent to the 'primary' were returned as 
busy, though the secondary terminated them fine.  We have a balance, and 
funny enough international calls are going through fine, just not US 
calls.  I opened a ticket.


The response form the carrier is that our asterisk is sending four 
simultaneous invites within one second, and for that reason the call is 
rejected.


I did a packet trace and was able to confirm this is true - only US 
calls sent to this carrier cause our end to send four identical 
simultaneous invites.  When it fails, a single invite for the same call 
is sent to the secondary, which is terminated without issue.


Happy to send the SIP trace if any would care to see it, but is there a 
reason anyone can think of that our asterisk (11.11.0) would suddenly 
start doing this?  It may be that it has been doing it all along, and 
our carrier just started rejected calls that come in this way, I'm not sure.


Cheers,

j

[asterisk-users] inbound T38 to email

2016-11-30 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere
I have played around with iaxmodem and hylafax and have a few working 
installations where PRI's are involved.  I have a new customer that will 
be sending inbound fax calls via a new (SIP) DID provider we are working 
with (yup, same one from the last message I just sent), and they support 
T38.


I vaguely remembered a 't38modem' project on sourceforge and integration 
with hylafax, and started looking at that today, but t38modem hasn't 
been touched since 2009.


Is there any new modern way to take t38 from a (SIP) DID provider and 
route to email?  Thanks for any insight :)

[asterisk-users] new inbound DID provider... no auth?

2016-11-30 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


We are trying to work with a new DID provider and I find myself 
confused.  Their standard integration is to send the call with no 
authentication.  I am expected to whitelist all their possible gateways, 
and accept their calls I guess with no peer definition.  I actually have 
it working this way; the calls land in our "public" context, I guess as 
"guest", and I am able to route them from there.  But that makes me nervous.


I would rather at least have them be associated with a defined peer, so 
I can set the right context and any other parameters I might want 
associated.  It is inbound only, no outbound.  I might try to set a 
host= in a peer definition with no secret, and see if that matches it, 
but I would rather avoid making a peer definition for every gateway they 
have.  Can anyone think of a way to define a single peer that might show 
from multiple potential addresses without authentication info?

I'm surprised no one has this available.

I did actually find a few docker images having to do with sipp, but all

useful, as I had sipp built in about ten minutes.


I'm working on scenarios to do our load test, which at present will 
involve pjsua and sipp sending audio calls through our proxy.  I'm 
thinking each container will add on fifty simultaneous calls, and I will 
simply start containers until I can't make an audible call myself 
through the proxy.  Not the grandest plan I suppose.  Open for 
suggestions :)


When I am done I will happily make the container available to the list

Re: [asterisk-users] 1000 analogue lines with asterisk

That would be the expensive route.  The inexpensive route would be to 
buy FXS ethernet gateways, like this: 
http://www.voipsupply.com/grandstream-gxw4248.  You could then get by 
with a single reasonably sized asterisk box (probably two setup as HA) 
and no need for expensive cards or complex channel bank setup.  We have 
done many hotels this way with great results.

A PCI express card with four primary rate ISDN ports, each linked
up to a
channel bank, will give you 120 analogue lines.  So you will need
nine such
cards; and for reasons of simple numbers of slots on a
motherboard, they will
have to be split among three or more servers, linked to a gigabit
switch.

You might end up getting a better deal if you bought 1000 hardware
SIP phones.
(You also would probably increase your personal indispensability

the bargain .)

Subject: [asterisk-users] weather.agi

Here is a funny story.  We mostly do hotels in the Caribbean, and one of our
first clients (going on ten years now) used the sample "weather.agi"
that used to be shipped with... asterisk@home? Trixbox?  Can't even recall
where we originally got it from.

This perl script uses festival to speak a brief weather forecast to the
caller.  We told our hotels this was a feature for guests, and assigned a
function code to execute it.  They have been using it for years.  In fact
the front desk used to just dial it in speaker mode for guests checking in.

Here is the funny part - the text for the weather forecast was coming from
an anonymous FTP site at tgftp.nws.noaa.gov.  Sometime in 2013 they stopped
updating the forecast!  So ever since then the caller would get the forecast
for June something 2013.  But because the weather in St Thomas is nearly the
same year round, NO ONE NOTICED!  Well, until just recently.

After we stopped laughing about it, they now want me to fix it.  But I can't
seem to find a new source of textual summary weather data.

So... has anyone else run into this and fixed it by chance?  Or can point me
to weather data?

Cheers,

The password isn't sent - SIP auth involves a challenge/response with

you are already there.

[asterisk-users] SIP headers in outofcall messages

2015-10-26 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Hi,

Our custom application sets some SIP headers that we want passed to the 
called party via asterisk in a simple proxy setup.  It works fine for 
voice calls, but we also use SIP to send outofcall messages.  I notice I 
can't use SIP_HEADER() to get those custom SIP headers in outofcall 
messages.  Is this a bug?


I have this in sip.conf:

[general]
accept_outofcall_message=yes
outofcall_message_context=astsms

We can send and receive messages between extensions with this without 
issue.  In extensions.conf:


[astsms]
exten => _X.,1,Set(CHATNOSTORE=${SIP_HEADER(X-Semo-ChatNoStoreForward)})
exten => _X.,n,NoOp(CHATNOSTORE ${CHATNOSTORE})
exten => _X.,n,SIPAddHeader(X-Semo-ChatNoStoreForward: ${CHATNOSTORE})
[snip the parts that actually send on the message]


CHATNOSTORE gets set to "", even though I can see the header in a packet 
trace:



0x0260:  654f 7267 3a20 6865 6c6c 6f0d 0a58 2d53 eOrg:.hello..X-S
0x0270:  656d 6f2d 4368 6174 4e6f 5374 6f72 6546 emo-ChatNoStoreF
0x0280:  6f72 7761 7264 3a20 666f 7277 6172 645f orward:.forward_
0x0290:  7661 6c75 650d 0a0d 0a54 6573 7420 6d65 valueTest.me
0x02a0:  7373 6167 6520 31 ssage.1

I'm not sure where to take this next... dive into the code for SIP_HEADER?

Thanks,

[asterisk-users] partially match a SIP header

2015-10-23 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Hi,

I have a need to pass through SIP headers that start with a particular 
prefix, without knowing beforehand what the full name of the header 
actually is.  For example I need to test for any headers on an inbound 
channel that start with "FOO_" and then use SIPAddHeader() to add them 
to the outbound channel.  Straightforward when I know the whole name, 
but I'd like something more generic that I won't have to update when we 
come up with a new header to add on the client side.


This is working fine:

exten => _X.,1,Set(FOO_ONE=${SIP_HEADER(FOO_ONE)})
exten => _X.,n,NoOp(Got Header ${FOO_ONE})
exten => _X.,n,SIPAddHeader(FOO_ONE: ${FOO_ONE})
exten => _X.,n,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN},80)
exten => _X.,n,Hangup


Any ideas?

Thanks,

j

Right. For Sangoma cards, lsdahdi can't tell if the port is E1 or T1 and
thus calls it "PRI". Note that "PRI" here is a poor name that refers to
the port type itself and not to the signalling in it (which don't have
to be ISDN).

Suggestions? Patches?



Ah, well that explains it, and I don't need to worry that I have missed 
some config.  Might I suggest that lsdahdi show "E1/T1" if the actual 
type cannot be determined due to hardware limitations?

[asterisk-users] Xorcom T1 to PRI

2015-09-24 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Hi,

I have a client that has a 24 channel voice T1 that I have been using 
e signalling over for a number of years.  The local telco finally got 
an ISDN switch and wants to move them to PRI.  I didn't see this as a 
big problem - I've done a few others on this particular Caribbean island 
without issues, but this would be the first time with a Xorcom unit 
involved.


We tried to do it tonight and failed.  I suspect there is an issue at 
their central office where they patched the line away from an old 
dms-100 and to the new ISDN switch - the tech said he couldn't see 
anything at the line layer, though I showed no alarms.  Regardless, 
something odd happened that I am hoping for some advice on.  We reverted 
to the T1 and will try again next week.


The odd bit is this - lsdahdi showed all 24 channels as "T1" instead of 
"PRI".  The output of lsdahdi at another site where I had already done 
this conversion (which uses a Sangoma card) looks like this:


root@astsouth:/etc/dahdi# lsdahdi
### Span  1: WPT1/0 "wanpipe1 card 0" (MASTER) ESF/B8ZS

Bah, the scrollback has already erased the output from the box in 
question, but essentially it showed the same as above with "T1" in the 
second column for all channels instead of "PRI".


They both had identical system.conf, which looks like this:

loadzone=us
defaultzone=us
span=1,1,0,esf,b8zs
bchan=1-23
echocanceller=mg2,1-23
hardhdlc=24

In fact the *only* things I changed from the old system.conf tonight was 
swapping "e=1-24" for "bchan=1-23" and adding the "hardhdlc=24".  The 
old (now functioning) system.conf looks like this:


# Span 1: XBUS-00/XPD-00 "Xorcom XPD [usb:X1067719].1: T1" (MASTER) 
B8ZS/ESF RED

loadzone= us
defaultzone= us
span=1,1,0,esf,b8zs
e=1-24
echocanceller=mg2,1-24

So what about system.conf would cause lsdahdi to show "T1" instead of 
"PRI" in column two?  Just trying to head off any additional problems 
once they get their patching sorted out.


Thanks,

j

The issue is probably with the wanpipe configuration and not with 
DAHDI or Asterisk.  Run the wanpipe_cfg script again and make sure you 
change all necessary settings from E to ISDN PRI.




The site with the Sangoma (wanpipe) card is working as expected as a 
PRI.  The site that I couldn't switch tonight uses a Xorcom box - the 
only one I have worked on.  Is there also something about Xorcom config 
that needs to change to make it realize it is a PRI and not a T1?  I 
don't recall anything like that in the installation, but that was some 
time ago.

[asterisk-users] Dell portability

2015-07-01 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Howdy,

I built an LXC container with an image of asterisk 11.18 precompiled 
and installed.  It runs fine on the dev platform, which is a Dell R320 
running Ubuntu 14.04LTS.  I shutdown the container, tarred it up, and 
untarred on a Dell PE1850, also running Ubuntu 14.04LTS.  The container 
itself is Ubuntu 14.04LTS.  Both platforms as far as I know are amd64.


The container boots fine on the 1850, but trying to run asterisk 
segfaults.  The source tree was still in the container, so I just did a 
make clean; make; make install.  It now runs fine.


Is there some compile flag I could use to make sure it is more 
compatible as I copy the container around?  Can anyone suggest a debug 
sequence that would at least narrow down what is causing the fault?


Cheers,

j

[asterisk-users] use of EC2

Curious if anyone has any stats on max concurrent calls on different EC2 
instance sizes.  A client has a proof of concept running on a medium 
compute instance now, and we are curious at what point we might 
experience issues.  All calls are SIP, no transcoding, using SPEEX.  I'd 
love to hear if anyone has a small or medium compute instance doing  
100 simultaneous calls.

My boss want to build a production server with it, and it will have +/-

As long as you don't overload the server it works great. I've used 
OpenVZ to separate Asterisk instances from each other. For my 
application (mostly conferencing) I can put ~ 350 concurrent calls on 
a single HP Xeon server.


OpenVZ is not really like KVM but more like Solaris containers or BSD 
jails. Docker is mostly using the same Kernel api:s that OpenVZ uses, 
but OpenVZ also has some cusom stuff.


If you need Dahdi you will need to give the VE's access to these 
devices, there are articles out there that explain how this is done.


Good luck!



We use LXC (what is under Docker) instead of OpenVZ to separate asterisk 
instances, and when Dahdi is needed I typically run an asterisk instance 
on the host and have SIP trunks between the container and the host 
instances.

Assume two SIP endpoints, no NAT involved.



That will only happen when the call is natively bridged:

Non-native bridge: Packets can get translated or Asterisk has an 
interest in the packet for things like DTMF or call recording.
Native bridge doing packet-to-packet (Local bridging): Packets come in 
on one channel and go out the other channel with nothing else done to 
them.
Native bridge doing direct media (Remote bridging): Packets go 
directly between endpoints so Asterisk never sees them.

Thanks for the quick reply RIchard!  Can I force native bridging, or 
does it default to that if I don't configure direct media?  The dialplan 
will be very simple - extensions calling extensions within a context.  
No DTMF, no recording, no mixing for conference, etc.

for byte) the same payload?  Assume two SIP endpoints, no NAT involved.

Lets say I take a call that was dialled locally (caller believes this

This depends on what you mean by “not involving the service provider.”

If you are literally forwarding calls that come in on the PRI back

(TBCT). Check it out in the wiki.


You need to make sure your carrier supports the feature.

When you want to do a “transfer,” you have an incoming call alerting 
or answered, you initiate an outgoing call (using the originating 
ANI). You initiate the TBCT and the CARRIER completes the transfer, 
disconnecting both of your B channels. The carrier will later notify 
you when the transferred call is done, but I don’t think Asterisk 
handles this directly.


Note that at least one of the calls must be answered when you 
initiate the transfer. If you are doing “unattended” transfer, you 
will, typically, leave the incoming call alerting until the outbound 
call answers, then complete the transfer. An “attended” transfer 
would generally answer the incoming call, play a message, do some IVR 
doodling, or chat with an agent then initiate the transfer.

We were actually using GSM gateways by setting busy forward number on

we need to scale up the setup but GSM gateways a very very expensive

[asterisk-users] DND on a Polycom IP450

2015-03-09 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere


Only slightly asterisk related I suppose, but hoping someone has 
attempted this...


I have an old installation with a bunch of IP501s, and one died.  I 
replaced it with an IP450, and the user sorely misses his DND button.  I 
hated those DND buttons anyway, as I couldn't control them centrally.


I'd *like* to program one of his softkeys to send a *XX sequence to do 
DND on the asterisk-side instead of on the phone.  Has anyone remapped 
the softkeys on an IP450 this way and might share the XML?


Thanks!

Still a shared resource.  I don't see the benefit.

Even beyond the shared resource bit, with the kind of IO you are likely

Do VOIP devices take more table entries than other Ethernet devices?

No, and if you have 1024 MAC addresses behind a cheap switch, you get

Multiple web servers, multiple Asterisk servers, multiple DB servers,

It appears to eliminate some problems, but Asterisk limiting audio
playback to files seems like a tough obstacle.



Mike said:
Maybe make the audio files available to all servers via a single NFS
directory?  Probably not a good solution if the servers aren't co-located.


Maybe someone could write a Linux device file that would return the blob's
content as a file read.




I beat you to that one ;)  That is exactly what a named pipe (fifo) is.  
Asterisk would read it like a sound file, and the AGI would dump the 
BLOB to it on demand.  It would work, but you can't have more than one 
process at a time reading from it, so that's a further complication...

So, once I have the audio in the database, how can I play it?

Creating temporary files seems so tacky.

Is there another way to playback or background audio either by 
specifying a URL or from a memory buffer (either C or PHP)?




How about a named pipe (fifo)?  Of course then you might have issues 
with simultaneous calls.  You would have to have a pool of them and 
somehow manage locking them...

further upstream resulting in our calls to many toll frees being rejected.


Switching to 10 digit CLID on all outbound calls through that PRI 
solved the problem.


I don’t know if this is your problem but be sure your CLID is in the

This makes me curious... what *is* the simplest format possible for

What about the text portion?  Should that never be sent?  I was indeed 
sending the '1', and I will remove that to see if it solves my problem, 
but I also have the company name in there.  I feel like a newb asking 
such questions, but I've never had this issue before :)

I don’t know what expectations for CLID your carrier might have,

our CLEC here in the US that while the CLEC was happy to take
e.164 formatted numbers from us as CLID, Global Crossing would
reject them further upstream resulting in our calls to many toll

Switching to 10 digit CLID on all outbound calls through that PRI
solved the problem.

I don’t know if this is your problem but be sure your CLID is in

Ok, here is an intense debug trace.  I've replaced the phone numbers 
to protect the innocent.  The smoking gun seems to be this:


Ext: 1  Cause: Destination out of order (27)

Though I have no idea why... calling the same destination from my cell 
phone works fine.  We only send seven digits for local on-island 
calls like this, and calls to other carriers work fine with the same 
format.  I'm starting to doubt there is anything I can do to fix 
this... seems like an issue between my telco and Sprint?


Cheers,

[snip long trace]

From here http://www.cnes.com/causecodes.html:

*Cause No. 27 - destination out of order [Q.850] *
This cause indicates that the destination indicated by the user cannot 
be reached because the interface to the destination is not functioning 
correctly. The term not functioning correctly indicates that a signal 
message was unable to be delivered to the remote party; e.g., a physical 
layer or data link layer failure at the remote party or user equipment 
off-line.


I am betting this is simply what my telco is sending because they were 
unable to pass the call on to Sprint.  It would be more informative 
perhaps to see what kind of trace the telco has of the handoff to 
Sprint.  I'm going to see if they will give it to me.

[asterisk-users] Way to dump PRI settings?

2014-08-19 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere

Hello,

I am having odd issues with a new PRI based installation.  Outbound 
calls work for all numbers except those that terminate at Sprint! The 
telco is new to PRI (this is in the Caribbean) and say that Sprint is 
rejecting the calls, and asked for our PRI settings so they can work 
with their switch manufacturer.  We are using the bare minimum default 
settings, but I can imagine that a whole ton of configurable settings 
exist that I have never played with.


Is there a way to dump all of the configurable settings for a PRI? The 
card is a Digium TE122.


Thanks,

[asterisk-users] PRI timing settings

2014-08-19 Thread Jeff LaCoursiere

Hello,

I wrote earlier today about a new PRI installation in the Caribbean, 
where all outbound calls are functioning fine *except* calls to Sprint 
phone numbers, which get rejected immediately as busy.


The telco has been working with their switch manufacturer and took the 
output of pri show span 1 from me and came back with this:


quote---

Please check your timers below.  How did you determine your settings?

 * Timer and counter settings:
  N200: 3
  N202: 3
  K: 7
  T200: 1000
  T201: 1000
  T202: 2000
  T203: 1
  T303: 4000
  T305: 3
  T308: 4000
   T309: 6000Our switch: Telcordia National ISDN 2: Range 10 - 90
   seconds, default 90 seconds.

 *


  T312: 6000
  T313: 4000
   T316: -1Our switch: Telcordia National ISDN 2: Range 10 -
   120 seconds, default 30 seconds.


  N316: 2
  T-HOLD: 4000
  T-RETRIEVE: 4000
  T-RESPONSE: 4000

---end quote---


Now I have no idea what T309 or T316 represent, but it seems odd that 
timers and counters would cause such an odd result... and the failure is 
immediate, not after some amount of timeout.  Can anyone shed light on 
these settings and tell me if they are configurable?


Cheers,

j

Hi,


I'm installing Hylafax on my Asterisk system.  From what I've read, I

we are using T38modem, it was a long way to get it stable, but finally
it works quite good with 10 parallel running T38modems.

But your carrier has to support T38, when we began to evaluate this some
years ago, this was not true for all.


Would you share the provider you are using?  I have had almost zero luck 
so far.

What country are you in? Every carrier we’ve tried in the UK supported T38 
without problem (so far.. I expect there is a few that don’t). Not sure I can 
name specific carriers as this is the non-commercial list though.

Sorry - should have mentioned USA. I say almost zero luck, because I 
have managed to get a few faxes out with a handful of providers tested, 
but none consistently. If anyone is very happy with their T.38 provider, 
please email me off list.


I got the spam message. At least she is cute.

this solution, will the odds that a scanner might find your machine be 
so low,

that it is not worth using something like fail2ban to override them? Food

We use this tactic.  I never seen scanners in my logs anymore. Haven't 
had any issues with it to date... we use Linksys, Polycom, Yealink, 
Grandstream, and Audiocodes products.  All have the ability to specify 
the registration port.


Cheers,

see the link I posted earlier, it's got some good info to get you started.
