I just set up Asterisk and FreePBX from the distro CD.
I can access the FreePBX control board from the browser of another computer on the same LAN
It is version 220.127.116.11
I set up extensions using the “Extensions” feature under “Setup”. I have set up 2 extensions so far. Here is one:
Display name: 1000
CID NUm Alias
SIP Alias: 1000
Add Inbound DID
Add Inbouncd CID
This device uses SIP techonology
mailbox [email protected]
I set up extension 1001 similarly
I then downloaded and installed X-Lite 4 (Is that a good choice for a softphone for testing?)
The setup in X-Lite looks like this:
Account: Account 1 (what is this used for, by the way?)
Allow this account for:
x IM Presence
User ID: 1000
Dispaly name: fred
Authorization name: fred
Send outbound vvia: domain
Dial plan: #1\a\a.T;match=1;prestrip=2;
I set up a similar setup pn another computer on the LAN, for extension 1001.
I try calling one extension from another, and nothing happens!
So, my question/s is/are:
- What have I done wrong?
- IS X-Lite a good softphone to use for testing?
- How do you dial an extension? (I mean how does the system know that 1000 is an extension number, not an outside number on the PSTN I am trying to reach?)
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated
