Freezing of Skype and Uplink


Recommended Posts

Hi!

My configuration is as follows:

I have Uplink 1.00, Axon 1.06 and Skype running on my computer.

As SIP device, I´m using my Fritz!Box Fon 7050 in my network.

 

The SIP device is at 192.168.0.1 and I have the extension 678 defined in Axon.

The computer is at 192.168.0.20. Extension 679 in Axon is in use for Uplink.

Uplink is configured to call 678 on incoming calls.

 

It seems to work, here is what Axon says:

SIP Private IP is: 192.168.0.20:5060

Unable to auto-detect public IP. Using private IP. (I've turned STUN off)

SIP Public IP is: 192.168.0.20:5060

Extension 679 is at: sip:679@192.168.0.20:5070

Extension 678 is at: sip:678@192.168.0.1;uniq=6F..........

 

 

Uplink writes:

SIP Private IP is: 192.168.0.20:5070

SIP Public IP is: 80.109.xxxxxx:62254

SIP Number: 679@:11776

Attempting to register sip:679@notebook

Registered as: sip:679@notebook

Skype is available

Successfully attached to Skype

Skype is available

Successfully attached to Skype

 

If I take my telephone and dial 679, then I get a connection via Skype (have tried it with echo123).

 

The log says:

Skype is calling...

Skype is calling...

Incoming SIP call

Call has disconnected

 

 

However, it works only for the first call. Also, Skype won't really hang up and Skype will freeze until I kill the Uplink process in the task manager.

 

And, it doesn't work for incoming calls at all. If somebody tries to Skype me, then Skype and Uplink will also freeze.

 

Might there be a problem because of the SIP public IP in Uplink? But how can I tell Uplink to work in the local network, without STUN or something.

And is it normal that the Skype messages in Uplink are coming twice?

 

Thank you for suggestions!

I'd similar problem while run the uplink in WinXP. Runnig Uplink in Win2k is okay. But I still can't use it because after the incoming call sent to my SIP client, the skype will drop the line by reason "sound device problem". In fact I can hear the first few word before the line was dropped. So the problem was my Skype (2.0x & 2.5) do not like device "uplink" as its sound device.

I believe I can successfully re-create the Skype "freezing" issue 100% of the time

 

Skype: Version 2.5.0.137

Uplink: Version 1.1

Windows XP Home Edition: Version 2002, Service Pack 2

 

As mentioned in previous posts, I have only seen the issue in SkypeOut calls, not in regular Skype to Skype calls.

 

When my VoIP endpoint makes a SIP -> SkypeOut call, it will always work if I let the SkypeOut call get connected. (ie. call recipient answers the call) BUT, if I quit (CANCEL) the call before the call is setup, then I will experience the freeze.

 

Uplink correctly accepts the CANCEL from my VoIP endpoint, and indicates "Call has disconnected". Hence the SIP messaging [ CANCEL / 487 Request Terminated ] is correct. (observed on Ethereal)

 

During this CANCEL state, the Skype client is showing "Connecting ..." Even though my VoIP endpoint has gracefully CANCEL the call, Skype is stuck in this state and frozen. If I kill the Uplink process via Windows Task Manager, Skype then unfreezes, shows "Cancelled" and continues to work normally after that.

 

nchBen, are you able to confirm that you can re-create the issue in this manner ?

 

Definitely would be sweet if this freeze issue can be addressed on the new version.

 

Cheers.

Version 1.2 still had this freeze issue as I described.

 

But Version 1.3 seems to address the issue.

 

 

NOT sure though if 1.30 seems to have a new issue.

It won't accept the incoming SIP calls. But if I go into Skype, and select Tools->Options->Privacy and select "Manage other programs' access to Skype", and remove UPLINK.

 

Then when I restart Uplink, it will "re-attach" itself to Skype, and then my incoming SIP calls work fine.

 

It is as if Skype is no longer honoring it's attachment to Uplink. Uplink screen though shows that it has successfully attached to Skype.

I am confident that the freezing issue has been resolved across the board on all CPU architectures now. However, if anyone experiences cases of Uplink/Skype freezing - especially repeatable cases please let me know with as many details as possible.
