DTMF issue

Dear All,

I have the following scenario:
My customer dial a DID number and it'll be forwarded to my asterisk server by the below trunk defined in sip.conf:

[sip_proxy1]
type=peer
context=stations
host=81.201.82.112
disallow=all
allow=g729
allow=alaw
allow=ulaw  
dtmfmode=RFC2833
relaxdtmf=yes
canreinvite=no

The above trunk will use the context stations defined in extensions.conf as follow:


[stations]
exten => _X.,1,Gotoif($[${EXTEN} = 112] ? 21)
exten => _X.,2,DeadAGI,a2billing.php|3
exten => _X.,3,Wait,2
exten => _X.,4,Hangup
exten => _X.,21,AGI,a2billing.php|3
exten => _X.,22,Hangup

The System will ask the user to enter his PIN number...The problem is that sometime the system recognize the PIN entered and sometimes the PIN is not recognized...I'm using RFC2833 as dmf mode...

I would like to know if my config is correct or I need o add something to it or there is a BUG on asterisk server regarding DTMF?

Please note that I'm using Asterisk 1.4.21.2
Regards

relaxdtmf=yes
rfc2833compensate=yes

Does it still fail if you try inband? Could be an issue with your provider...

dtmfmode=inband

My provider said that asterisk server is not sending back OK message to their INVITE SIP packet, that why they are not sending the DTMF digits

DO you have any idea about how to force asterisk server to send OK message to each SIP INVITE?

Ok... you said 21.2 sorry....

Did you try the inband or do a full reload of chan_sip.so after the previous mod?

Do you think it's a codec problem?Is there any relation between codec used and DTMF?

g729 is a highly compressed codec and can have issues with DTMF. Can you eliminate g729 and test?


[sip_proxy1]
type=peer
context=stations
host=81.201.82.112
dtmfmode=rfc2833
relaxdtmf=yes
rfc2833compensate=yes

Dear Palner,

Now when dialing from a SIp endpoint registered on a SIP proxy, everything looks fine and DTMF are sent successfully..The call flow id:

Endpoint-->Sip Proxy-->DID Provider-->Asterisk Server

Otherwise, when aking a call from a normal  PSTN line the digits are not hitting the Asterisk server...Call Flow:

PSTN line-->DID provider-->Asterisk server

What could be the issue?

yes same one..I guess I found it...I added a line that contains Answer on the context as follow:

[stations]
exten => _X.,1,Answer
exten => _X.,2,Gotoif($[${EXTEN} = 112] ? 21)
exten => _X.,3,DeadAGI,a2billing.php|3
exten => _X.,4,Wait,2
exten => _X.,5,Hangup
exten => _X.,21,AGI,a2billing.php|3
exten => _X.,22,Hangup

What do you think Palner?It's working properly now

Yes... you must answer the call or play any media first (a playback will also answer).
