Product FamilyAsterisk

For Asterisk systems using a Digium-licensed G.729 software codec or Digium hardware transcoder, G.729 transcoding capability may be enabled by adding "g729" to the allowed codecs list for the desired VoIP user or peer entry in users.conf, sip.conf or iax.conf. Full documentation for each of these configuration files may be found in their respective sample configuration files, included with the Asterisk source code.

Example SIP user in users.conf:

fullname = Joe User
secret = 1234
hassip = yes
hasiax = no
context = default
disallow = all
allow = g729,ulaw,gsm
