Hi there, my name is Liam and I'm trying to set up a local voip system in my house
I'm using Minisipserver because I cant be bothered with linux at the moment
Server is fine, extensions register but there's either no audio, very bad audio or one way audio
I had the same problem with AsteriskNOW
I have tried to setup a STUN server which worked but didn't resolve the problem

Any help would be appreciated

[MENTION=458356]Liamza2314[/MENTION] Its not perhaps the solution you looking for, but have you considered 3CX? Its really a easy Voip System.

Check your codecs.

Make sure you use G729 on your extensions (phone or softphone) and on the server.
Do you have access to logs?

If it is only local VoIP, as in no VoIP to the Internet, then you do not need a STUN server.
If you have no audio or bad audio quality between your phones then some things to check:
- length of the Ethernet cable
- Is power cable running next to Ethernet cable?
- Are announcements from the server to a phone clear?

Do the phones work if they are on short cables and close to the sip server?

Hi [MENTION=458356]Liamza2314[/MENTION],

Do you connect your PBX to an external VoIP provider?
Or is this problem you are having between extensions?

One way speech is most likely a network / NAT issue.

If it is a local only issue, make sure that the codec in use at PBX and phones are the same, use only alaw as test, also ping every device and make sure you have propper connection between devices, on a LAN it should be in the <5ms range with no time outs.

How many extensions and phones do you have connected? For more than 2, can you make test calls between all the combinations, and do you still have same one direction audio issue? Or is some combinations working?

Please help with more info that we can help better.
