The mediatrix does have unique username/passwd for each port. At least the
1104 FXS does. Each port can be registered separately with *. I assume other
way round should work as well then.

I don't believe the above will work. There is only one IP address for
the box, and no way that I've found to send a sip packet to the box with
"additional" information that would suggest using port 1 vs port 2. From
what others have hinted at (and it seems the majority of us are limited
either to what's printed or experimentation), the 1204 has an internal
function that kind of resembles a trunk group. "It" decides which port
As mentioned previously, the sip "register" function in the box is inop
in both directions, therefore there does not seem to be a way to address
the ports through contexts or anything else. Mediatrix has provided the
mib variables where one can enter a different password for each port,
but that has no value either since the register function doesn't work.
What happens if you don't use a register => line in sip.conf, but do
include a section like:
Just to check my theory, I did some testing via fwd. I discovered that if
I include a register => line with my fwd info, then when I call my fwd
number (outbound through iaxtel) it rings in. But I can't call out via
fwd. So then I put in my [fwd] service definition, removed the register
line, and waited for the old registration to expire. Then I tried calling
my fwd number (again through iaxtel). This time I got the message about
the user being offline. But now I can call out via fwd, even though calls
wouldn't come in. This demonstrates that the [fwd] section is used by
Dial() when I try to place a call out through that service, and that the
register line isn't needed for the outbound call.
Somebody mentioned that the mediatrix lets you set a unique
username/password for each of its ports. It seems that you could set up
four service definitions, each using a different user/pwd pair. Then *
will use a different user/pwd pair to log in to the mediatrix, depending
upon which service definition was called for by the Dial() statement.
Or does the mediatrix not really have a distinct user/pwd pair for
accessing each port?
