From the asterisk command line can you type "iax2 show peers" while the iax software client is working.

Sorry I meant while the software client is running but not in a call.

ok i found out what it was

1. i had a macro to create extensions from 70 - 79 via the code below. so i changed the iax.conf to a free 70 number which is now 75. and adjusted the code below to the last line and it worked.

Does that make sense or do you advise a better method?

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;OFFICE EXTENSION;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
EXTEN => _7x,1,Macro(normal|${EXTEN}|Sip/${EXTEN})
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

EXTEN => _7x,1,Macro(normal|${EXTEN}|Sip/${EXTEN})&IAX2/${EXTEN};

That will work fine.
It will try to dial via IAX for all 70-79 extensions but it wont cause any problems if some of them dont exist.
