I opened the ports and it works now.
However, I cannot use my phone to place and answer calls. The headset works fine, though. Any hint on how to overcome this ? The audio settings are all defaults (OSS conexant).
Thanks for helping,

In linux, the MJ device works as a soundcard. When you plug a phone into the MJ soundcard while running linux, it just funnels the sound from the soundcard to the phone instead. There is no software running to detect the dialing from the number pad on the phone. Therefore, while you should be able to have a conversation via your telephone, you must dial from the software phone.

As the MJ also runs as a soundcard, you could also check to make sure the device is not muted. First, I am assuming you're running ubuntu. There are a few issues with the gnome volume manager, and so its better for you to use gnome-alsamixer, which can be installed from synaptic. Once you install that, open it up. There will be 2 tabs, one for your default sound card and one for the usb mixer. Unmute everything in the usb mixer. You can also try this in ubuntu's volume manager, but I think alsamixer works better.

I run Ubuntu 9.04.
Installed the alsamixer and the device is unmuted. I went to Twinkle and changed the system settings of the sound card to ALSA USB Internet phone by Tigerjet(USB Audio) on all selectable items in there. Still unable to use the phone. It works with the headphones and the standard settings tough. Something I'm missing here? Thx

Also, do you know if the MJ works if plugged directly in the USB port of the router?

Hm well as of this writing, all softphones other than the MJ one no longer work... that means that twinkle will not connect to the MJ service, sadly. So it may not be your set up at all.

I'll try the x-lite and report back. Thanks anyways for your great help. Do you happen to know a thread about connecting the MJ directly to the wireless router or if this setup will work?
Have a great w/e,
Stav

I don't but I don't believe you can hook it up to a router like that as you would still need to run the software phone, which a router cannot do.

PostPosted: Tue Aug 11, 2009 11:37 am    Post subject: Use MJ as a PSTN connection for an Asterisk Test Box Reply with quote

good day - I have a MJ and a working Astrisk server with some sip phones. I'd like to use the MJ account as PSTN provider for my Asterisk test box.

I've captured a Sniff of MJ but I'm not sure what I need and how to find it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Is MajicJack no longer working with Twinkle, as gnimsh stated above? I have tried everything...even entered the Domain as MajicJack customer support chat advised, "reg.talk4free.com". I am running Twinkle 1.4.2.1.fc10, and MajicJack just been upgraded (I believe like 1.90; cannot tell while in Linux right now). Tried all recommendations, even robatino's:

SIP account
Your name: Firstname Lastname
User name*: Exxxxxxxxxx01 (replace x's by phone number)
Domain*: talk4free.com (and reg.talk4free.com)

Password: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (20-character MJ password) - though mine was not 20-characters, but 7 characters.

SIP server

Outbound proxy: proxy1.Dallas.talk4free.com:5070

Whoa I did it.

SIP phone details for Xlite:

Click the button to the right of the "clear" button in the center of the xlite console. Choose system settings>SIP proxy>default.

Double click enabled, change to yes.
Display name: whatever you want.

Username: your proxy username
Authorization user: also your proxy username.
Password: Your sip password here
Domain/realm: UserDomain
SIP Proxy: proxy1.YourCityHere.talk4free.com
Out Bound proxy: proxy1.YourCityHere.talk4free.com:5070 (if your ProxyPort is different use that instead of 5070)
After this al the fields remain at default, change nothing.
gnimsh, I did just as you specified above, and get an error "403 forbidden" when attempting to make a call. And here is the log:

I have already tried using Twinkle as well...does no internet phone work with MagicJack any longer?

Using ubuntu karmic, mjproxy and twinkle i got mj to successfully register and place outgoing calls. i could not get it to receive though. the client wll receive with other carriers (sipgate, sipsorcery) so don't think it is the nat, maybe it's something to do with mj proxy. but its a start. if anyone has any ideas please post. i compiled mjproxy from source post here.

The great thing about Linux is also a double edged sword. I think the real reason MagicJack isn't even trying to support linux is b/c the linux community is so vast and helpful. What do I mean? (MagicJack Programmers) Why do we need to figure out how to get it to work? Linux users will figure it out for us! Mad

I think this is more common than we like to admit! Evil or Very Mad

Can you put a screenshot up of your various settings?
Be sure to erase your number, just put a black line over it in a simple editor or something...if you care about us seeing your username (as your password is already hidden anyway)

I was getting the 503 a lot the last few days, having to do with the server outages. Try switching to a new server like newark instead of nashville, for example



Hi,
Which password is required? The usual MJ one that I use for login at http://my.magicjack.com?
Thanks...
