Updated dialup.world with info for what I'm doing! I'm sure I'm doing something incorrectly but it all sort of works.

@Famicoman@mastodon.sdf.org 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

@Famicoman@mastodon.sdf.org 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.

@Famicoman@mastodon.sdf.org 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

@Famicoman@mastodon.sdf.org 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.

@Famicoman @natalie finally found a moment to fool around with it. I was able to connect and do some light browsing. It lasted about 10 minutes before it got cranky and disconnected. Also from a G4 iBook.

@dokuja Hey thanks for giving it a shot, out of curiosity would you mind sharing which phone provider you used?

@Famicoman uhh, me? I guess. Too cheap to pay a provider for dialout to pstn. Plugged into an aex410 card and configured an extension to dial your voip.ms sip address.
