Hi,
Has anyone here got asterisk working with th MGCP protocol? I have a problem
with MGCP phone connecting to the asterisk PBX system. I have done a
thorough search in the asterisk as well as digium's web site but of not
much help. Please let me know if any has got it working. If you have got
it working can you please post the related parts in the extensions.conf
and mgcp.conf files?

Thanks a lot for your time.

I may be wrong here, but I thought mgcp was used to communicate with a
gateway, not with phones. If you are using Cisco IP phones with the SCCP
image, asterisk can support it with it's own skinny channel driver or you
can get another one that may work better at
http://www.voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+SCCP+channels . Unfortunately, I
haven't tried it yet but there's a how-to on that site. Good luck and please
let me know how it goes.

Regards

Majortom

Just FYI,

I've been testing asterisk with the protocol,
and got working with our device.

I had some problem with
1. wildcard RSIP, but recent version has support for it.

2. digitmap handling, made some change into the chan_mgcp.c for
working in digitmap mode.

3. extensions.conf has something like:

exten => 7001,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/1@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7002,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/2@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7003,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/3@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7004,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/4@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7005,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/5@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7006,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/6@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7007,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/7@smta1.syspol.com)
exten => 7008,1,Dial(MGCP/aaln/8@smta1.syspol.com)

4. mgcp.conf has
[smta1.syspol.com]
context=default
host=smta1.syspol.com
wcardep => aaln/*
line => aaln/1
line => aaln/2
line => aaln/3
line => aaln/4
line => aaln/5
line => aaln/6
line => aaln/7
line => aaln/8

Thanks.

I use the MGCP ATA186 image fine.

If you were to detail your problem a bit better than someone might be able
to help ...
