Updated with info for what I'm doing! I'm sure I'm doing something incorrectly but it all sort of works. oh let me try calling in again - i called a few nights ago and i couldn't get past the initial handshake

@natalie let me know if you can try again. I just checked and it was almost like the ata locked up or something. Asterisk sent the call over but no ring on the line same issue as the first time, using the internal modem on a G4 ibook... will give it a shot from different hardware/os

@natalie Damn! Thanks for testing though, I really appreciate it. Not quite sure if this is just a "voip is lousy for modems" issue or a hardware issue on my end. There have been times when I've had to try dialing a few times before connection is successful but those are few and far between. it seems like it wasn't even getting past the handshake at all, and i've had muuuuch better results over voip... firing up another machine now hm no dice. i'm ulaw all the way to the voip provider. echo cancel off. dunno :/

@natalie what provider are you using? Would be good to know in the chance I can sign up and do my own testing or see if others have the same problem with the same provider.
