Yate users hangout place / Burning Man
« on: August 16, 2014, 09:00:46 PM »
If any of the great yate folks, folks who kindly give us this great software, are coming to burning man this year, let me know. Though I am not going,  I will buy you a beer and show you around.

Linux / yate won't start
« on: December 30, 2013, 12:19:49 PM »
I am using yate 4.3.0-i586-3vl70.  After updating firefox, I now get the following error ("..." means that lines have been omitted):


Yate (9184) is starting Mon Dec 30 10:09:58 2013
<RManager:GOON> Failed to bind to : Address already in use
<mgcp_gw:WARN> Failed to bind socket to :2427. Error: 98: Address already in use
Initializing module SNMP Agent
<WARN> Failed to save config file '/etc/yate/snmp_data.conf' (13: Permission denied)
<snmpagent:WARN> Could not bind SNMP UDP Listener, error 13 Permission denied
Initialization complete
Yate engine is initialized and starting up on
^CYate engine is shutting down with code 0
<WARN> Failed to save config file '/etc/yate/snmp_data.conf' (13: Permission denied)
Suggestions?  I am reading the instructions but first couple of things I tried didn't help.

Yate users hangout place / Yate service
« on: October 07, 2013, 05:39:56 PM »
I understand that yate is a subdivision of a company that offers voip office systems.  I have been trying yate now for quite some time and am very happy with it.  Use it all the time.  However, the yate folks are not generally very responsive to requests for help posted in this forum.  Is this in some way representative of the service I would get were I to spring for a full blown system for the 20 phones in my office?  Has anyone on this forum used the main company's system?

Yate users hangout place / buzz
« on: September 29, 2013, 10:27:54 AM »
I am going to have to replace my office phone system soon.  20 phones.  About 10 -12 different incoming phone numbers.  So I have been trying out yate now for several months on my linux computer.  Yate is very good.  However, a few callees complain about a buzz when I call them with yate, so I have to use the land line when calling them.  My call to them is on their land line.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of the buzz?

Linux / Plantronics Headset
« on: August 10, 2013, 01:15:10 AM »
I just bought a Plantronics Audio 478 USB Stereo Headset and though I get youtube sound out of it, the plantronics audio 478 usb soundcard won't work at all with yate is configured out of the box.

I use yate 4.3.0 on slackware 13.37, Samsung RF511

Linux / Yate and KDE
« on: August 06, 2013, 10:36:15 PM »
I recommended yate to a friend and he wrote me today, saying that yate works fine on gnome but does not work very well on KDE.  He left no details except:

I think it has to do with the KDE sound system.


Yate users hangout place / voicemail phone numbers
« on: August 01, 2013, 11:28:13 PM »
yate version 4.3.0 i586

When checking old voicemails I occasionally find one I want to call back.  If the caller does not leave a phone number, is there any way I can retrieve it?


Linux / echo question
« on: July 30, 2013, 10:01:13 AM »
Yate sounds fine on my USB headphones.  However, yesterday, a caller complained that his own voice was echoing back to him when talking to me.  He was on a land line.  I was on yate.  He said that when I disabled my mike, the echoing problem disappeared.  I wasn't paying too much attention to the techs, as the merits of the call were front and center, but I think this is an accurate summary of what happened.

Any thoughts about the echo thing?  This was the first complaint but others might have been too polite to complain.

Linux / adding a call
« on: July 25, 2013, 10:49:26 AM »
I am talking to someone on yate.  I want to call someone else and add that someone else to the existing call.  Is there an easy way to do this in yate?

I use yate 4.3.0 on slackware 13.37.

Linux / audio problem on receiving telephone calls (SOLVED)
« on: July 21, 2013, 02:42:08 PM »
Yate calls out well. I am impressed by its local address book. 

But I can't accept incoming calls.  Get following error:

Failed to open audio
Please check your sound card

I use slackware 13.37 (Vector 7.0), with Alsa sound card

yate version 4.3.0 i586

I would download and try alsachan but don't know where to put it.

Any suggestions?
