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?

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

Tell me where can I find the installation for this version

Try here:

I tried, but not found on my version of asterisk

[[email protected] asterisk-chan-dongle-asterisk13]# make

Let´s Go:

yum -y install tcl asterisk13-devel make automake binutils

cd /usr/src
git clone
aclocal && autoconf && automake -a
./configure --with-astversion=13.X.X
make install
cp /usr/lib64/asterisk/modules/
cp etc/dongle.conf /etc/asterisk

vim /etc/udev/rules.d/92-dongle.rules and insert this => KERNEL==“ttyUSB*”, MODE=“0666”, OWNER=“asterisk”, GROUP=“uucp”

vim /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf and insert this: rungroup = dialout

asterisk -vvvvvvvvr

git clone
-bash: git: command not found


yum -y install tcl asterisk14-devel make automake binutils git

make install
