    Are you sure your E-SIP is reachable ? Registered on * ?

    Let's check :

    Before trying a 2 leg outgoing calls, you can try with a Leg to E-SIP and the other side directly connected to a local extension, for instance with the *'s echo application.

    CALL :

    exten => 1234,1,answer
    exten => 1234,2,playback(demo-echotest)
    exten => 1234,3,echo

    E-SIP should ring and when you are connected on E-SIP, you should hear "this is an echo test ....blabla"

    If all this work fine, then you can try with a 2 outgoing legs.

    Hope this helps
