Adrian:

I gotcha… how do you secure a Sylkserver on a public IP?

Thanks.

All the phones, including Blink, are behind the Apple router, but their outbound proxy is pointing to the IX78 on the LAN. If it's SIP, the way the IX78 is configured, it does not go through the Apple router. I'm wondering whether there is a setting to make MSRP go through the IX78 as well. I'm pretty sure that it would support MSRP properly. I could probably put the Sylkserver on the IX78 directly so if you think that would work, I could try that….

However, if I edit the conference.ini file to remove the ";" in front of SIP trace and change the =False to =True, and restart the server, the calls don't go through. I'm using sudo nano /etc/sylkserver/conference.ini and just to check whether it might be leaving weird characters or spaces, I edited the file back and forth several times to confirm that if I modify the ini file, the calls don't go through to the server.

I have both a DID assigned to the server (which works) and I can also reach it with a SIP URI (e.g., sip:marc at mocet.com (mailto:marc at mocet.com)). I can have multiple calls on the bridge. I've tested up to six so far and it works for G.722 and G.711 (mixed).
