I setup AsteriskNOW 1.6 with freePbx. I assigned it an address, and I made a team on a virtual machine (vmware).

There are 2 clients:

  • Windows XP
  • the AsteriskNOW server

I logged into the control panel and added an extension account, then when I log into x-lite to register that account, it did not connect. It showed me an error message like "connection failed, bad path" or something like that.

When I issue the command

show sip peers

on AsteriskNOW it told me this was an incorrect command.

I don't know where the problem is. Is there a configuration for 2 nodes "network configration" like a gateway or dns?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you set the correct port (5060) to connect in x-lite? It is hard to tell, where the problem is, maybe you should to try a different client, SJPhone instead on X-lite for example – Alexey Shatygin Jan 9 '11 at 19:05

Check that you can reach the asterisk IP address from the PC you use for x-lite and that the port 5060 is not blocked by firewall.

Command for checking SIP registrations is:

sip show peers

see the documentation.
