E51 and Asterisk Revisited.
» Tagged as: quadruple play
In the middle of the night there was a power failure and the Asterisk server I had configured was shut down. When it restarted the Nokia E51 wouldn't connect to it (it's set to automatic connect). I tried manual connect but the phone just seemed to wait for an eternity before saying could not connect.
Then I realized that Nokia is to mobile phones what Windows is to computers. They both need frequent reboots. And yes after the E51 was rebooted, the phone automatically connected to the asterisk server.
It was time to revisit the old desktop and try to install a softphone on it. This time I chose X-Lite. Installation and configuration was easy but there is a problem with the audio. What's spoken on the E51 doesn't get through to the desktop but it works fine in the other direction.
