Module admin GUI (Cannot connect to online repository)

I’m using FreePBX distro for few months ago, I setup the modules and work perfect…but I have never been able to download or update modules from the Module admin GUI the error it gives me is (Warning: Cannot connect to online repository(s) (, Online modules are not available.) I want to download a commercial module and I am not able to do it for the error that I am presenting.

Someone have any idea to fix this problem?

It’s usually a DNS problem. Do you have listed as one of the server’s DNS servers? Does your firewall allow connections from the PBX to servers outside your network?

My customer also faces this problem. I can not activate the freepbx.


Or any other DNS you know is accessible from your PBX…

( is a Google DNS many people use but it’s not mandatory to use that one…)

That said, you might want to have a look at this thread:

and especially this post (if you are in the same situation as me):

Good luck and have a nice day!

Happy New Year!
