[Freeswitch-users] Help configuring external profile

I am a total newbie. I have set up FS on CentOS with this group's help. I
can make an outbound call via an ITSP (flowroute).


I have struggled receiving a call. Freeswitch does not answer when I dial
the DID from outside.


I already have an Asterisk box on the LAN with SIP port at 5060. So I asked
the group what to do and the reply was to change the sip port in vars.xml,
which I did. But ignorantly (I think) I set the internal_sip_port=5090,
rather than the external_sip_port. It dawned on me that I might have made
this mistake when I look at:


freeswitch at fs> sofia status

API CALL [sofia(status)] output:

                     Name          Type                               Data


                 internal       profile   sip:mod_sofia at

                 external       profile   sip:mod_sofia at

              example.com       gateway            sip:joeuser at example.com

                flowroute       gateway     sip:77505382 at sip.flowroute.com

           alias                           internal

            internal-ipv6       profile           sip:mod_sofia@[::1]:5090

                  default         alias                           internal

                      nat         alias                           external

                 outbound         alias                           external


3 profiles 4 aliases


So if I change external_sip_port=5090, I think I should be OK. However, the is not correct. Since I had to create a new SIP port at 5090,
I had to tell my hardware firewall about it. So I created SIP=5090 at (the Asterisk box is sitting at


How is FS getting in 'sofia status' and how can I change that

Thanks, Lars
