I’m a slacker… and some SIP PBXes stuff fo’ the ’11

13 01 2011

Not really, just got alot going on.

Switched up devices to the HD2, and threw Gingerbread on it. Can’t wait to see how native SIP develops over the next year. I was just a little disappointed by it’s current state. It did not work well with pbxes at all. One must use UDP in order to get (very choppy) calls work. Yeah yeah I know its in early stages still, and I am using an unsupported device. So I can’t be to critical based on my testing. I just really hoped for more. Its all good though. I owned a g1 so I know about being patient. (Still waiting for flash lol)

Anyhow…yeah I been slacking a bit in the guide making field, but I will try to get people’s questions answered as I can. Please understand though that I might not get around to it for very extended periods. So if you need help right away ask around on xda.

I have alot planned for 2011. Just scooped my android developer’s license and got some great ideas in the works. If only I had the skills to match my creativity level I would be good. I’m getting the hang of it though.

Also been busy getting things ready for the trip to Cali. Can’t wait to get out there and Get to cultivating. Haha yeah there e we go I’ll develop apps to monitor your crop remotely. That would be the shiznit.

On the SIPDROID note: I must say “under five bucks a month for pbxes Soho is worth it” I don’t regret upgrading a bit (even if it was a 72hr pain in the ass & I should have been comped a pro acct. Long long ago for sending you guys their way) but um…since they didn’t….j/k  😉

here’s a new tip though

This will help you set up a direct connection from google voice to pbxes.org. Yes I know SIPdroid can do it automatically, but I like my old account with all my other trunks and extensions configured. So I decided to share the method I used in case someone else also likes their old stuff.

Pbxes.org now allows gtalk trunks. If you haven’t noticed Google voice also lets you use Google talk as a forwarding number.

The link on PBXes is not exposed to free users, but the page is, and they allow free users to set up accountsts with gtalk trunks  using SIPDROID so I will assume it is okay to create them manually.

Here’s How:

Simply sign in and  go to the create new sip trunk page.

At the end of the URL it will say =SIP change this to =GTALK and press enter.

Now you are at the gtalk trunk creation page.

Enter your Google credentials, and save the trunk

Add inbound and outbound routing for the new trunk & configure it for your extension. DO NOT try to name a route with the @ symbol included…it won’t work.

….oh yeah, and check the box on the google voice phone settings page to enable chat (Google Talk) as a forwarding # & uncheck your old sip route if you have one

You should have a working direct connection….It works most of the time at least. As long as you stay logged out of Gtalk on other devices w/ voice video chat enabled while using this route

Now have fun configuring multi Google voice  accounts with no callback scripts or multi sip providers or any of that BS.
