I am a newbie, but not completely thick. Having said that, i’m having some trouble trying to set up a remote extension for my newly installed FreePBX, which i’ve placed on a cloud VPS.
I’ve done this successfully with an AsteriskNow box at home, but I really can’t figure out where I’m going wrong.
I can administer the box via http as i’ve allowed my IP address in via iptables. I’ve opened up all relevant ports for SIP as well.
I’ve followed this guide:
So I have set up an extension (100) as follows:
mailbox [email protected]
and an inbound route (100) as follows:
DID Number 100
I’m not troubleshooting the routing here, that will come later! I just want to connect my SIP endpoint to the switch. I’ve set up a 3CX softphone as follows:
local PBX IP (IP of Asterisk box)
External PBX IP (left this blank)
PBX port 5060
Proxy (IP of Asterisk box)
Local SIP port 5060
First RTP port 10001 (i’m told this not starting at 10000 is important, but not relevant to this post)
Right, there you have it. I’ve tried different variations on the above and have even disable iptables when i try to connect to ensure no traffic is blocked.
Added to this, I see no log messages when I use asterisk -vvvvvvvvr from the cli and try to connect.
