I have nearly infinite questions, zero answers, only 5 I can ask. Subtracting 5 from the infinite, I really only have a 5 questions circling around me, the rest will come as I go.
I wanted to spend more time looking for guides around in the forum but ended up leaving “FreePBX” guide search at the end of the day. Today was gonna be the day, approaching the relatively high priority task, prepare for Monday.
We’re a I.T. company trying to get into FreePBX / Asterisk to offer to our major clients, on a mission to implement it at two companies. One will be replacing a Nortel system, and at the other replacing a Ring Central VOIP system. I’ll throw in some numbers, on any given day both of these companies have ~100 inbound calls maxing 10 concurrently, outbound ~50 @ 5 concurrent; and a lot of inter-office mingling calling.
My question to you is,
How do I setup this **** thing. Darn. I have a server that’ll eventually be at one of the companies with overkill hardware, possibly best. Dell R520 with a Xeon processer, OS on SSD, 24GB of ram and a total of 6 Gigabit Nics.
Also a Sonicwall. I saw a post that I’ll follow, “Happiness with SonicWALL afterall”. I’m an absolute butcher with all things.
I followed a CrossTalk Solutions video, not going to nail the guy, he’s a good guy, good stuff. I followed along; with him installing and configuring FreePBX 14 and I on FreePBX 16.
The installation and interface doesn’t appear different. I know nothing basically.
got it activated, trial of SIPStation, created users, created extensions, used a softphone to call another - nothing, bought PolyCom VX301 - nada. I realize maybe my problem is with th
I rather start from the complete beginning of time. What posts have you used or seen that offered a rich amount of study content and setup information.
Assume I have zero knowledge of anything, as I do. Okay networking.
Is DMZ absolutely necessary for softphone and FreePBX to communicate? SonicWALL blocks UDP port 5060, does this issue affect my phones on lan or just FreePBX to SIP trunk provider?
