After a lull in voice activities my lab is in tatters so its back to square 1.

First of all my SIP solution is based on Asterix/FreePBX .. I would like to be a CLI purest but I don't have the time and FreePBX has served me well. I would recomend downloading the app / linux distro as one package and either run it from an old box or a VM.

Setting up the external conectivity through a typical NAT firewall arrangement needs a little thought, this article solved all the issues I had.

I would recomend you get everything working on a LAN first though just so that you have a baseline of what works and what does not.

SIP clients seem to be my biggest issue at the moment:

LINPHONE has a app for Window, Linux, Android and Mac stuff used to be awesome but they let the designer out of his box and the kindest thing I can say is that its not to my taste. Additionally they have had a run in with the lawyers it would appear and H264 video codec has been pulled and now I wait for VP8 codec support from Asterisk / FreePBX ... sigh.

So now playing with a couple of other clients on Android, CSipSimple and Antisip with Antisip actually working with video too! Will update when I settle on one, preferably with chat support too.
