    We've had a number of complaints from customers that our telephone line was dead, so we did some testing of your own. On approximately 50% of call attempts no voice prompt is heard (there is just silence) and then the the line goes dead, ending the call. We can see these calls on the 3cx log reporter listed as 'not answered', so they are definitely making it through from the 3rd party SIP trunk to our server.

    Has anyone seen this kind of thing before and/or has a solution to the problem? If it's of any help we are running v.10.0.24018.2322

    How do calls come in to the system? How many simultaneous calls can you handle?

    I am assuming in your case that you are using a SIP trunking agent. If I am correct, then it could be that the SIP messages are getting thru, but the RTP (voice) packets never make it and the call is subsequently dropped. Is this something new, given that you still have V10? Has anything changed?

    Have you run the firewall checker and did all pass?

    Thanks for replying and apologies for my slow reply - our office is open long hours and I needed to wait for it to close before running the firewall checker. You are right your assumption about how calls come in. This is a recent problem (last week or so). Nothing has changed at all that I am aware of. Here are the results from running the firewall checker. All seems well. Do you have any thoughts on what the problem could be?:

    A few more questions:

    1. Do you have a fixed public IP?
    2. Are you running STUN?
    3. Is there a reason you are still running V10?
    4. Are all internal calls OK?
    5. Outbound calls are not similarly affected? They go through fine and no matter the duration of the call?
    6. Is there only one NIC card installed in the system where 3CX resides?

    On the surface, I am inclined to suggest that you should contact your provider and then arrange to duplicate your earlier testing while they are monitoring. It still sounds like RTP packets are not making it to the system; hence the reason no audio.

    Ideally, you should be running V11 SP1, fixed IP, STUN is disabled and the firewall checker passes (v11 checker seems to be more robust in this area) and one NIC.
