Problems related to Freephoneline's Call Platform Migration

Postby ap236 » 11/23/2022

Been a FPL user for over a decade. Today I woke up to no dialtone. Rebooted both my ATA and my router and still having this issue.

Thanks.

Given the circumstances, I don't see much point in troubleshooting at this time (at the moment, you can't connect to voip.freephoneline.ca).

I had same problem. Looks like the SIP proxy voip.freephoneline.ca is not working. Perhaps a DNS setting because it's not resolving.

Changed it to voip2.freephoneline.ca and now works.

I noticed that as well. Account page shows 'disconnected', but app shows registered. I have app set up on my PC + tablet. Changed to use voip2 on both and both show 'registered'. On PC using MicroSIP, I'm able to call out no problem. On tablet using CSipSimple, call is made but not completed - there is a voice message saying "that password is not valid".

voip2 seems to be working, thx

Update: voip2 works at one more friend, both show disconnected on the https://www.freephoneline.ca/showSipSettings page, though.

It's been impossible to register on 208.65.240.44 for most of the day, regardless. I don't know if that IP will change for voip.freephoneline.ca.
Using the Obihai 2xx ATA series failover guide, Obihai ATAs that were registered on voip.freephoneline.ca switched to voip2.freephoneline.ca or voip4.freephoneline.ca:6060 automatically.
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=18805#p73839

voip2 and voip4 worked today. I don't know whether they will continue working this week, but they did work today.

Keep an eye on https://status.fongo.com/

I would expect many aspects of these services to not function properly until maintenance has been completed.

Cannot receive voicemail

Postby jutzet » 11/24/2022

Good day everyone!

My ATA is working fine, no problems there. I can call and receive calls, but I'm having an issue with voicemail. Normally, when someone leaves a voicemail, I get it forwarded to my professionnal email address and it comes through as an attachment in the email and I can listen to it. Now, I still receive the email, but no audio file is attached. Furthermore, it seems I am not receiving ANY voicemail at all. I just tested it now by leaving myself a message. I called my number, the message comes on where I hear my voice and I then leave a message after the beep. I then accessed the voice mailbox through a Remote Access Number and it says I have no new messages! When clearly, I just left a message on the voicemail! This means customers have been leaving me voicemails but they've disappeared to some void somewhere!

I've tried contacting Fongo, but they say there's no support for FPL and they redirect me to pay per incident, but apparently the service is discontinued since June. How can I fix a problem that's clearly on Fongo's end?

The FPL desktop app for Windows doesn't register with the proxy server it uses at this time; so the desktop app is unusable at the moment.

The FPL desktop app is working again, but https://www.freephoneline.ca/showSipSettings isn't reporting SIP status or SIP User Agent for the desktop app yet.

Incoming and outgoing calls are "operational": https://status.fongo.com/.

Voicemail is currently "degraded".

Okay, the desktop app's SIP Status is being updated eventually. It just takes a long time to appear (about 5 to 10 minutes later, after registering).

This is the reason:
