Guys, I have FreePBX 14, SangomaOS 7.3 and Asterisk 14.6.2. Is Chan_dongle installed by default or should I install it to be able to connect some GSM USB dongles? If there is the need to instalation is there any step by step procedure available?

Please help me to install Dongle- Huawei E153 (voice enabled)

It’s a purely Asterisk thing, so you’re going to be on your own.
