i have a linksys spa9000 voip system which works fine.
I have just purchased a 3com wireless 3108 voip phone.

I've managed to get the phone on the wireless network and try registering with the spa9000.
The problem is, it just sits there saying registering.

my spa9000 IP is 192.168.1.1 using port 5060 (default)
on the phone i have added the proxy address and outgoing address as above.

The status page doesn't give an reason why it's not connecting.
any ideas ?

I dont know the 3com phone but you mentioned a proxy server. This should normally be left blank as you dont have any need for a STUN proxy as the pbx is on the local network.
Perhaps you are putting the server details in the wrong field. The server field is often called a registrar server.

'Outbound address' is not normal terminology. Do you know where a manual can be downloaded so I can see what it sais about the settings?

Well according to the manual the 'proxy server' is the server you register on while the 'outbound server' is actually the proxy server. I cant say I am confident the manual is correct given this very strange naming.

Try entering the IP address of the server as the 'proxy' server and leaving the outbound server field blank. If that doesnt work swap the settings over.

Also make sure 'NAT Solution' is set to disabled.

I've tried that.
NAT is already disabled.
The only thing i was wondering was if the linksys spa9000 that controls the system doesn't allow other sip devices to connect unless some thing is unticked to allow other devices ?

No I dont believe so. The Linksys device is based upon Asterisk and will enable a client to connect as long as it supplies the correct username and password.

The username/password will be what the 3com phone calls the authentication ID/password

The linksys may call it something different. It should be identifiable as there will only be one password/secret type parameter you can assign to a specific client/phone etc...
