How to add a MGCP extension via FreePBX WebGUI

(Benzhu) #1

Asterisk: 11.16.0
FreePBX ‘VoIP Server’

I install AsteriskNOW-612-current-64.iso via VM tool, after install successfully, i can’t find a way to add MGCP extension on Freepbx WebGUI.

i found there is no mgcp.conf under directory /etc/asterisk/
[root@localhost ~]# ls /etc/asterisk/m
manager_additional.conf manager.conf.bak meetme.conf modem.conf musiconhold.conf
manager.conf manager_custom.conf meetme_general_additional.conf modules.conf musiconhold_custom.conf
manager.conf.12.0.1.bak meetme_additional.conf meetme_general_custom.conf musiconhold_additional.conf

but the MGCP driver has installed successfully.

There is no GUI support for that protocol. You would have to configure it manually, then add extensions of type “Custom” and add the custom dial string you require to dial the MGCP extension.

… unless maybe he wanted to write one himself and donate it back to the project. I know how much fun that is, and everyone should try it once. :slight_smile:
