New to voip here so probably lots of dumb questions. The problem I’m having is I seem to be surfing for hours on end trying to find a basic setup tutorial - I don’t know enough about it to know the subtle differences between distros and there are alot of dead links on the documentation. Furthermore, most of it is for old versions - I am running freePBX 2.10 / Asterisk 1.8 and some of the use of terminology is inconsistent… grrrr…
Here’s where I’m at: I purchased my sip numbers and a VPS. I can log onto my freePBX admin page but that about as far as I’ve gone. Why can’t I find some basic tutorials on doing the following?
- Configuring my sip trunks for send and receive.
- Adding a softphone extension.
- Adding a voip phone extension.
All I want to do right now is get the system up and running so that I can send/receive calls on the softphone as I need to get my phone lines live. Setting up the balance of the system (IVR etc seems somewhat straight forward). My sip/VPS provider has exactly zero information on their web site.
