Linux / Re: yate won't start
« on: January 09, 2014, 10:47:01 AM »
Thanks Marian,

I don't get the error when running yate as root, but yate gui still doesn't come up.  Here is netstat -l after running yate as root.  I note something on port 2427 and I think that is the problem but I am not familiar with this "port" business:

root:# netstat -l

Linux / Re: yate won't start
« on: January 08, 2014, 03:22:17 AM »
Thanks marian!

I have been fooling around a lot lately with yate, trying to get it to work without success.  I now get a different error, as follows:

<snmpagent:WARN> Could not bind SNMP UDP Listener, error 13 Permission denied

Now the results of my following your kind suggestions:

Before attempting to start yate at the terminal:

     pidof yate shows nothing.

    netstat -l shows a lot of stuff, but does not show yate anywhere, nor does netstat -lp as root.  Netstat -l did show yate at the time I originally posted (when yate showed the port 2427 error). 

   I do not know how to try " telnet 5038"

I would be happy to post the results of netstat -l and netstat-lp if you think that might help.

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

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 / Re: Yate cant pickup Microphone
« on: September 18, 2013, 12:01:02 AM »
Its pretty clear that the yate folks have better things to do than monitor this page.  My suggestion for you is to try another microphone.  My Logitech headset works fine on yate, with a bit of an echo problem on occasion, but my plantronics headset doesn't work.  I no not why.

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.

I am not getting echo complaints anymore.  Not sure why.

Yate works fine for me out of the box.  It is clear to me that I have will need to learn about its other features.  I am using yate now constantly, so I suspect I will learn more as time goes on.

Yate users hangout place / Re: voicemail phone numbers
« on: August 06, 2013, 01:04:12 AM »
Freesentral looks good and, for one with my limited knowledge (and "limited" is an exaggeration) pretty difficult to learn.  Perhaps I can look further into it on a free weekend later this month.  It is comforting that freecentral uses yate as I find yate excellent.  Far superior to twinkle or linphone. 

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 / Re: audio problem on receiving telephone calls
« on: July 22, 2013, 11:01:05 AM »

Last post was from my rather slow home telephone based ethernet  internet.  At office this morning, with rather fast cable based internet, yate accepted calls perfectly, so long as ringer is off.  And did not hang up.

Other than the cumbersome Twinkle, I think Yate is the only sip phone that works with my slackware based system which has the necessary local address feature.

Thank you very much.  I will play around with my home system and see what's up there.
