Thanks in advance

WOW, no response in 48hrs!.

O.K. I forgot to mention the asterisk version if no-one gathered from FreePBX 2.4.x that I am running here is;
Asterisk 1.4.18.1, Copyright © 1999 - 2008 Digium, Inc. and others.

Further to the above and after some more reading up on the matter,
I was beginning to suspect irq or port clashes so I checked the folowing;

Yes you will have IRQ issues specially when the card is sharing with the NIC but that might not be the root cause here.

Let me ask a Simple question:

This is a Sangnoma card and they have excellent support, it’s part of what you pay for when you buy there card. Why not call them and get that part of the issue all straightened out first?

Next As a official statement FreePBX is a software bundle and layer that sits on top of a working copy of asterisk, and we assume that everything under it is working fine. So we really don’t have any reason to support hardware cards as asterisk has to work with the m first for us to see it (i.e. if asterisk see’s it fine then we’ll see it fine). Now saying that does not mean we will not or don’t but please try and remember these things.

  1. We are a layer above the issue and assume you have it working.
  2. This forum is Free Support by users who want to or can help other users NOT a manditory technical support help line. If that is what is needed please see paid support on the site where you WILL get exactly what you are seeking.
  3. I’d help but I have not used Sangnoma hardware (Digium, IAX and SIP trunks) so don’t know the details of how to verify that things are actually working.
  4. In the Northern part of the US, Grade Schools just let out this week and if most communities are anything like mine 50% of them are now on vacation. I saw cars, trailers, campers, and RV’s waiting at my kids school for it to end so they could grab the kids and drive/fly away on vacation.

So questions you need to ask yourself.
If the Sangnoma drivers can see it, can asterisk? Have you checked and verified that asterisk can see it because if it can’t FreePBX surely will not.

Assuming you can see the card have you created a trunk in FreePBX? because if there is no trunk defined in FreePBX then it will not touch it.

Based on the infor you provided you are using a early version of FreePBX 2.4 WHY? either use the latest version of FreePBX and/or since this is a new box please start with the latest 2.5.1.x as they are working on releasing 2.6 shortly and you’ll already be two generations behind, which if this was a old in production box would be one thing but since it’s a new build don’t start behind the eight ball.

Thanks all the same but it is not what I am looking for.
