Version 1.50

Server Failover is back!!!
Major rewrite!

This is the version of the guide that will continue to be updated.


Version 1.51x

-- added link for optional instructions to create Tropo app to redirect anonymous callers
-- updated firmware version reference


Version 1.52 (January 21, 2018)

-- fixed a few typos I stumbled across



Version 1.53 (March 27, 2018)

- fixed some hyperlinks
- fixed some page references


Version 1.54 (April 2, 2018)

- mentioned the restriction (for incoming calls) of only one registration per FPL account being allowed on page 42
- added FAQ about rebooting the ATA on page 52

Version 1.55 (April 11, 2018)

- accidentally referred to RegisterRetryInterval as RegistrationRetryInterval on some pages
- accidentally referred to MTelemarketers as Mtelemarketers on one page
- fixed a grammar error (this is a long document, for me, that I'm often editing while I'm tired)

Version 1.60 (December 22, 2018)

- addressed a potential issue involving X_CheckPrimaryFallbackInterval that may cause temporary IP bans from FPL's Primary Proxy Server to persist (page 22)
- removed Tropo instructions since that service no longer works
- updated hyperlinks
- updated some general information



I've kept version 1.43 on page 1 of this thread (down below) for those who need a version without server failover.

I'm keeping this version here in case anyone wants a non-failover version of the guide.

Version 1.43

- updated digitmaps on pages 5, 6, and 15 to reflect that Freephoneline supports some N11 codes.
https://www.fongo.com/government-service-numbers/
http://www.cnac.ca/other_codes/n11/n11_codes.htm

Note that dialing 411 with Freephoneline costs money.

https://www.freephoneline.ca/termsCondi ... 11Text.jsp
"The Service does support 411 calls, which shall be charged at a rate to be determined from time to time by FPL, and it also supports 311 calls where available."

Obihai isn't very forthcoming with public firmware release notes. However, sometimes you can find some here:
https://www.ukvoipforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=987

Also, OBi200/202 firmware threads can be found at http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=9983.160 and http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=13484.0.

At this time, firmware 3.1.1 (Build: 5804) and 3.2.1 (Build: 5794EX) are the last official firmware versions for both the OBi200 and OBi202 that support XMPP.

a) http://fw.obihai.com/OBi202-3-1-1-5804.fw (also works for OBi200)

This version doesn't support OBiExtras.

b) http://fw.obihai.com/OBi202-3-2-1-5794EX.fw (also works for OBi200)

The EX version supports OBiExtras.




These firmware versions work with the guides in this thread.

It doesn't matter whether you use the EX firmware version, even if you don't subscribe to OBiExtras.
Obviously, if you do subscribe to OBiExtras, you'll need the EX version of the firmware.

These firmware versions were reported in this thread: https://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=13484.20.

There's modded firmware available now, but using it may void the warranty on your ATA. I would prefer not answering questions related to the use of that firmware, but it might be useful for those that know what they're doing. That said, use it at your own risk, and please don't ask me to troubleshoot issues relating to it. I accept no responsibility for any problems arising from its usage. For those that want to ask questions about it, do so over here: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r317927 ... rmware-mod. Respectfully, please do not post questions about this user-hacked Obihai firmware on these forums.

The related site is located at http://www.obifirmware.com/.

The following information hasn't been added to the guide since it's possible that Obihai is going to address this issue in a later firmware update.

If you're using your own answering machine (as opposed to Freephoneline's voicemail system) and you're hearing beeping on recorded messages, then your ATA is treating the incoming call, incorrectly, as a fax event (and the following instructions below apply):

If you used the Obitalk web portal (http://www.obitalk.com) to configure your ATA, keep in mind that you must continue using it to configure your ATA. Otherwise whatever settings you change will eventually be overwritten by what you previously entered at obitalk.com anyway. If you wish to disable this behaviour, dial ***1. Enter the IP address you hear into a web browser. Navigate to System Management-->OBiTalk Provisioning-->select Disabled for the method. Save. Reboot ATA. Now obitalk.com won't overwrite whatever changes you make via the device's interface (via IP address).

Pick one method (obitalk.com) or the other (IP address of device) for changing device settings. But do not use both methods.


If you're using Obitalk.com, look at this picture for reference: http://i.imgur.com/xwyqgRE.jpg
That grey cog wheel with the "E" is for the expert configuration menu.

It shows when logging in at http://www.obitalk.com, selecting "Edit Profile" on the left, then scrolling down
under "Advanced Options" and finally selecting "Enable OBi Expert Entry from Dashboard."

Otherwise, dial ***1. Enter the IP address you hear into a web browser.

1. Navigate to Codecs-->Codec Profile (do this for both A&B)-->Codec Settings

2. If T38Enable is enabled, change T38Reinvite to "callee only"
(uncheck both device default and Obitalk settings boxes if necessary)

3. Save settings/reboot ATA

This issue has been fixed in the latest firmware version, 3.1.1 (Build: 5804). If you're on that firmware version (or later), there's no need to follow the quoted instructions.

That's really 3.2.2 (Build: 5859EX). I'm glad the manual download link was found.
However, that link is now dead. Obihai killed it.

Keep in mind that

1) in the event you have problems with 5.2.2. (Build: 5859EX), you can't downgrade to a lower firmware version once it's installed, and
2) once the official version of 3.2.2 (Build: 5859EX) is installed you can't apply the hacked firmware version of 5.2.2. (Build: 5859EX).
