Thanks for the reply. Yes I did get the outage notification at about 0330, actually I get them
quite often but I never notice any disruption. Anyway I am sure that's a red herring
because a Sipgate trunk on the same account can make calls, and an Orbtalk and a Localphone
trunk can recieve calls. I am getting the distinct impression that Betamax are blacklisting
Pbxes perhaps by IP address or maybe User Agent.
I used to run an Asterisk box here, but the hosted solution did most of what I needed it to do
and I already have the office computer running a Skype gateway in conjunction with Pbxes
so it would make a lot of sense to run 3CX on that windows box, and from what I can see
3CX ships with Skype support.
I have had 3CX on that machine for a few months but it seems quite complex and very
different from the FreePBX type interface that I am used to. Plus there was no urgency as my solution
Looks like I should give it another, I am looking at http://www.3cx.com/voip-gateways/skype.html
at the moment. Any tips would be welcome.
