Failed to authenticate on INVITE
Until late 2011, I had been using ViaTalk with Asterisk with very few problems for years. Suddenly, it all fell apart. Most of the problems I had are now resolved, but I still have one. If I try to make a call, Asterisk gives me this message:

So all is well. However, I am concerned that one day the problem will occur with this configuration too, unless I can get to the bottom of it. The solution also requires hightower to be available at all times, which is not always the case. Has anyone else seen this problem?
