I was at MNP, pretty sure they around then (2014 to 2020 for me I think).
I think I’d prefer to go with the ISO install.
- Where would I find the proper ISO for the FreePBX 40?
- Are there any guides on the install process to go with it?
Been awhile since I last used Asterisk (pre FreePBX days). Would like to just get a crash course refresher.
To clarify, in purchasing the FreePBX 40, are there certain features I get from that hardware that I need to be sure I obtain the proper ISO to use?
Really appreciate the help!
Hmm, I’ve maxed out on my replies… thanks for the info on the ISO, I’ll get started.

Quick update, The FreePBX 40 box is re-installed from clean ISO. Will see how things go now and will report back.

I was able to log into the web interface, and then it walked through updates, then activation, all seemed fine. Walking through the Firewall wizard and it through an Ajax error when enabling the local network as trusted, then dropped the SSH connection and browser connection.
Made it a couple more steps and then… “Ajax request broken or aborted for an unexpected reason. Please check console logs for more details.”
Kind of crummy to require new users to limit their interactions on their own thread when aiming to get support from a newly purchased device. Frustration level increasing a bit.
I can’t imagine this is the experience this box is meant to deliver and I question whether it’s in proper working order. It certainly isn’t leaving me with a lot of confidence of setting up a small office to rely on it for their daily communications.
Assuming this isn’t normal behavior for a FreePBX 40, should I aim to return it and get a new box?
Looks like the system just did it’s own reboot.
Got the PBX connected to the SIP provider using pjsip. I have one phone here on hand connected to the PBX. Now just need to get inbound and outbound dialing to work.
