| || || | Sip port limit exeeded
I have PAP2T connected to Asmax ar8002c router. Recently I have noticed a
strange log - "Sip port limi exeeded". This message is logged by Asmax every
time the PAP2T registration time expired.
I tried to change some PAP2T settings but it only made this matter worse.
The router start hanging after few houres. Now I have the previous settings
and the strange message in log.

| || || | VOIP bandwidth
My ISP provides statistics for my line and IP addresses (I have 8
"real" addresses) as I have my SIP box on a dedicated IP I can see the
usage. It does however appear to be asymetric with the "download"
being very much less than the "upload" 2 or 3 to 1. Is this normal or
does SWMBO talk more than she listens? :-)

| || || | DIY ISP
Let's say I want to set up my own dialin server. I don't have a spare PSTN
phone connection. Getting a geographic incoming number is usually
straightforward (Sipgate et al are free). What are the issues with trying
to do this with VOIP? I suppose the problem is I don't actually want V near
any IP. Is there any protocol to having the PSTN-VOIP gateway act as a
modem, rather than a voice...

| || || | Free world dialup
The current site seems to be occupied by the Jeff Pulver Circus, and
although a link is there, it seems to bring up a cached version of the
fwd home page with busted links to their services.
I know there hasn't been much happening with fwd lately, but it would
be a shame if the service were to sink without trace.
Anyone have an idea?

Advice please. I'm a VOIP rookie.
Someone has asked me to contact them and has given me a choice of:
(a) Calling an 07017 number.

| || || | Linksys pap2 lights continually flashing?
I recently purchased a linksys pap2 voip adapter from ebay. The adapter
worked fine for a day but now there seems to be a problem. The power light
flashes red and the two line lights flash blue.
I cannot access the adapter through the http panel and there is no dial tone
through the phone line.
Any ideas please?

| || || | voipcheap incoming number
I have an incoming number set for my voipcheap service, but it only
rings when using their windoze app and not when using sip. The sip says
that it is 'registered' and I can make calls ok.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get the incoming number to work
using sip, and if so, how?

| || || | BT Business Hub - is the VOIP locked in to one service?
I have recently installed ADSL on our business phone line and have the
BT provided "Business Hub" as the router, it's a 2Wire router.
I wasn't aiming to use the VOIP through this router as it's really
only a backup ADSL and our main ADSL connection is Enta and uses a
Speedtouch 716WL router.
However, I'm having problems getting the VOIP on the Speedtouch
working (see my other posting about...

| || || | Strange problem with S450IP and VOIP
I have a Siemens S450IP and it normally dials out on one of my VOIP
connections (Voiptalk.org). If my wife calls our doctor's, which has
some fancy pbx, after a few seconds of talking to the receptionist it
drops out to an engaged tone. This is very repeatable, and is somewhat
anoying. Today she was getting *really* cross so I said to force it
out over BT. She did this and of course it was...

| || || | A small question about the Siemens C475IP
The C475IP (from the previous thread) seems to have so much going for
it that I think I'll be buying some.
One question that occurs to me, which might make it even *better*.
If I set the answerphone so that it works for only some of the numbers
then, presumably, I don't have the problem of answerphone activation
whether I like it or not on the other numbers. Is that correct? If
so it gives me...
