The Outbound option allows you to connect your YateBTS based local network to other networks via SIP or IAX.
Configure an outbound connection in the Network in a Box(NIB)
To configure an outbound connection in the NIB's Web GUI, select the 'Outgoing' tab. You will be able to specify a SIP or IAX connection for routing calls out of your local network to the rest of the world.
First, you need to select the protocol for the outbound connection from the drop-down list. This will generate the parameters that need to be configured. There are 2 types of parameters:
- basic parameters (displayed when the protocol is chosen)
- advanced parameters (which are hidden and will be displayed if “Advanced” is clicked)
The “Save” button will save the configuration in accfile.conf. A typical example of setting up a SIP outbound connection will start with an outgoing form without any protocol selected.
Here is the SIP configuration page. After selecting the SIP protocol, the Basic parameters will be displayed:
Finally, after adding the connection data, click the "Save" button.
The "Modify" button permits editing the parameters.
The “Switch to IAX” button deletes the old configuration and permits the new outbound connection to be set.
If you click on “Yes”, the SIP outbound connection is deleted from accfile.conf file and the form for adding the IAX outbound connection is displayed:
Outside the NIB Web GUI, you can also route to the outbound connection by setting up an account in the [outbound] section in accfile.conf.
SIP outbound account
[outbound] enabled=yes username=your_username password=your_password server=192.168.1.1 protocol=sip
IAX outbount account
[outbound] enabled=yes username=your_username password=your_password server=192.168.1.1 protocol=iax
The examples above show the default configuration when using a SIP or IAX account. In specific cases you might need to configure other parameters as well.
