Call Butler on VMWARE ESXi

Jan 23, 2009 at 3:12 PM
I tried getting Call Butler to work on VMWARE ESXi but when it dials outbound and connects no voice is heard. Is there something in the software that prevents it from working on either VMWARE or MS Virtual Server?

If you review my post:

I also have a problem with outbound calls.  I am using Xensource.  (Another VM product, similar to VMWARE)
I wonder if that is the problem.

Please post here if you go outside of your VM and it works as specified.

It works outside of VMWARE, so there is defintely something interfering with Call Butler on a Virtual Machine

I would say it would have something to do with the sip messages and the IP of the physical machine and the virtual machine, but I am not well versed on how that conversion takes place.

Also, I know the timing of most virtual machines with asterisk installed makes it impossible to accurately transcode codecs without stuttering and clicking, not sure if the same case applies to callbutler.
