Allright. So I am trying to port my FreePBX/Asterisk installation to new hardware, and I have come to the conclusion that it is probably better to start from scratch.
My old installation sits behind a Firewall with a local address of 192.168.x.40. I downloaded the AsteriskNow 6.12 distro and installed it. The new system comes up with IP 192.168.x.116. Then I set up a trunk and registered it. “sip show registry” shows a registered trunk. I set up an outbound route and a phone. The phone does connect to the new server,
When I dial from the phone, whatever I do, I only get “The number you dialed cannot be connected as dialed” or similar. I also noticed, that when the new system is online (registered), my old system doesn’t work correctly anymore. I can dial out, but when I for example dial my cell phone, it rings, and I can pick up, but the extension on the old phone keeps on ringing. So there is some interference which I think I need to resolve first.
So, that finally brings me to my question: How do I need to set up 2 freepbx/asterisk systems that reside on the same network to work independently and not interfere with each other. I checked the firewall, and there are a few ports forwarded to my old system. I don’t think I can forward them to both systems, can I?
Any help is appreciated.
