Question : Using X-Lite to call SIP URL

I'm trying to call my friend, a sipgate customer using x-lite but I keep getting

"Call Failed : 404 not found"

The format I'm using from the phonebook is

1234567@sipgate.co.uk (123456 is not his real number).

according to sipgate this is the correct url and this should connect,
any ideas?

TIA

If your using PlusTalk it won't work because PlusNet have no peering with Sipgate.

Try entering number as SIP:1234567@sipgate.co.uk.

I don't think peering is an issue. You only need peering if you use a short code to use another SIP provider numner eg for Gossiptel you would enter **467 then just the number, in this example **4671234567.

Question : Using X-Lite to call SIP URL

From Sipgate website -

Quote
4. Problem with X-Lite: Error messages "404, call failed, call not approved"

If you receive this error message, please go into the X-Lite configurations menu and set sipgate.co.uk as default, not as Proxy1. You make this adjustment in the menu - system Settings - SIP Proxy - [ default ].



Any help?

Question : Using X-Lite to call SIP URL

Well I'll try, but then surely that assumes I have an account with Sipgate?

I don't, I have an account with Plus Net. and I want to call a friend who uses sipgate.

I think I might just pick up the mobile and call him, seems Sip is about where mobiles were 10 years ago, It becomes so dam difficult to use the service, you end up writing a letter.

Hi,

At the moment we don't have a peering arrangement with Sipgate. I'll make enquiries tomorrow to see if we can set one up.

Yes, but I was suggesing you make the same change with your PlusTalk setup.

Surely entering the SIP URI should always work or is PT somehow limited?

Depends how each SIP server is set up. If you are using PlusTalk to proxy all your calls (instead of just stuff @sip.plus.net) then it probably won't work. You can dial a SIP URI directly, rather than going through the PlusTalk server, but it is up to the system you're dialing whether it will accept the call - it might be rejected if you're not logged into that system with known authentication details (e.g. sipgate might only allow you to call other sipgate users if you're logged in with a sipgate account).

The peering really does 2 things:
1. It makes it possible to dial some peer using numeric digits instead of having to enter the URI. This is important for people with some hardphones and ATAs since they can't dial anything other than numbers.
2. It lets you dial SIP servers who are over-restrictive about where they accept calls from.

IMHO, SIP servers _should_ accept calls from anywhere rather than having these silly peering arrangements.
