No Connection (Cannot connect to local host)

Hello there,

I'm experiencing an error where callbutler cannot connect to local host.

Here are the error details that I'm getting:

Can you please let me know how to fix this problem.

Can you go to File, Connect, Connect to this computer?

That should connect you to the local host

That's the first thing I tried, and it gives the same error. I also tried reinstalling the program but it didn't help.

Completely uninstall call butler and delete the callbutler directory in program files, then reinstall it.

done that too... didn't help... I finally managed to get it to work on another machine. But got another problem.

I have connected several Cisco 7960G phones to the system. It was working fine for about an hour. After that some phones became unresponsive (I couldn't place an outbound call or call to another extension), but they still showed active in Callbutler Manager. I again reinstalled the system, tried with all possible settings and got the same result. May be the phones are not compatible with the Callbutler or may be I have some interfearance in the network while phones are trying to communicate with the system.. still can't figure that out...

I'm guessing you switched those phones over to the SIP image listed here

Are all your extensions local?

Windows Firewall disabled on the box running CB?

Put CB in debug mode and copy and paste the trace of SIP messages when the phones are "not" working, but are showing as working.

Yes we have updated them with the latest SIP firmware.

All extensions were local and Windows Firewall was off. I have tried all the different settings and on three different servers.

I have reinstalled the system again and surprisingly it was running for about 36 hours with no errors, but after half of the phone became unresponsive again. At that point I gave up, and switched to trixbox. Callbutler is a great PBX for machines based on windows, easy to operate system, but didn't work for me.  Thanks for all your support.
