ZiaxPhone is a Voice over IP (VoIP) Telephone client for the Zaurus PDA.
The application is distributed as a freeware for personal use without any warranty for you own risk.
It is based on the IAXClient library and run on the original Sharp ROM Version 2.38d with Qtopia V1.5.0 or OZ3.3.5.

The IAX protocol is the signal and transport protocol for the Asterisk Software PBX. IAX is simple, lightweight nature gives it several advantages, particularly in that it can operate easily through NAT and packet firewall.

Missing features :
Known Problems:

Download/Installation :
For running the ZiaxPhone application choosing the Application tab and tapping on the ziaxPhone icon.
The first time startup take about 1 min. because ziaxPhone create some audio files for ringing in the /home/root directory.

This is the installed file list :

Some time the software deintallation didn't work correct. In this case run the script /home/root/usr/lib/ipkg/info/ziaxPhone.postrm

Asterisk Configuration :

To be able to register ziaxPhone to Asterisk you need to change your configuration on Asterisk.
Add this lines to /etc/asterisk/iax.conf :


Add this line to /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf :
exten => 5555,1,Dial(iax2/zaurus, 15) ; Ring the interface, 15 seconds maximum
exten => 5555,2,Voicemail(u1234) ; If unavailable, send to voicemail
exten => 5555,3,Hangup

And reload or restart asterisk.

Now start ziaxphone and setup a user zaurus with password secret and CallID 5555 (Options->Setting).

For developer : If you like to build your one RISC based IAX client, you need this patch because the IAX protocol is not word align. iax2-parser.patch is a patch file for iaxclient/lib/libiax2/src/iax2-parser.c

This Software is as is and is without any warranties.
