CLI commands not available

I installed the FreePBX with the following:

Lame 3.97
Linux kernel 2.6.18-xenU-ec2-v1.0 (1000Hz timer)
Webmin 1.450

using following instructions:

Now, I can log in and set up everything. However, XLITE phone is not registering. I get the following error message in Log:
failed for ‘XX.XX.XX.XX’- No matching peer found

(i tripled check the username, password and created new extensions but none of them gets registered)

I try to troubleshoot it by looking into debug.

I log into Unix and typed asterisk vvvr
sip debug

I get error " no such command ‘sim debug’

I also check many other commands but none of seems to working.

-I hope I gave info to get some help. Please let me know if there is something I need download or turn on or anything else I can try to get the extension registered.


If the error is no matching peer found then the username and secret do not match.

You have many typo’s ‘it’s sip set debug’ you have an error ‘sim debug’.

The command is also ‘asterisk -vvv’ you don’t want the r.

I would start at the basics with a ‘sip show peer xxx’ and make sure your peer settings match.

-bash: sip: command not found

All of the sudden all the phones are registering now, i didn’t make any change. You just simply registered now.

I call call from one extention to another but hear the ring. However, Can not hear each other.

By the way: I noticed earlier SIP trunk was down as well and all of the suden SIP trunk also went up.

You have network problems. Started with one of the “without tears guides, PBX in a Flash, even the trixbox guide” it’s all well written by the same guy and FreePBX based. You need to get your network and NAT fixed.

I also made a type, it is ‘asterisk -rvvvv’ for command line with verbosity.
