I am very new to software PBXs and somewhat new to Linux…
But I am a somewhat old computer guy…
Started with mainframes about 25 years ago and went to the DOS and Windows world, so I have some difficults in Linux but want to surf this wave !
So, I need some help on this.
I was playing with Trxibox and Elastix before but after some testings and seachings I decided that the solution that will best fit my needs is PIAF.
O bought a A1200P with 4 FXSs and 8 FXOs, started testing Trixbox and Elastix and both recognized and configured the card automatically and I can manage the FXSs and FXOs in the Flash Operator Panel.
Now, I installed PIAF 64 bits, that do not have, yet, automatic installation for my card, and used this to install the card http://pbxinaflash.com/forum/showthread.php?p=10041#poststop .
All seemed to be OK in installation and I tried to see the card in the FreePbx Panel but the FreePbx Panel did not show the FXOs nor the FXSs.
I asked for help in the PIAF forums ( thanks a lot who helped as I made some progresses ! ) but I think here is a better source for help in FOP.
After playing with updating scripts and sources I decided to start over from scratch and installed again the 64 bit version and the drivers for the A1220P.
Everything seems to go Ok and the PIAF status is:
PBX in a Flash Version 1.2 Daemon Status

And the zaptel.conf is:

The card has 4 FXSs and 8 FXOs so, for me, everything seems to be Ok…
But the FreePbx Panel still do not showed the FXOs and FXSs…
Then I created channels in FreePBX.
- 4 ZAP extensions for the FXSs using channels from 1 to 4.
- 8 ZAP trunks for the FXOs using channels from 5 to 12.
The extensions, now, seems to be Ok because they appear in the Panel and are not “greyed” like the not logged SIP ones !
And I tested one of the FXSs using an analog phone to call an extention connected to a SIP softphone and all was fully functional !
But the trunks still wasn´t there !
In the “Trunks” tab in FreePbx they appear like:
* Trunk ZAP/5 * Trunk ZAP/6 * Trunk ZAP/7 * Trunk ZAP/8 * Trunk ZAP/9 * Trunk ZAP/10 * Trunk ZAP/11 * Trunk ZAP/12
And when I selected one, I got the warning:
"WARNING: This trunk is not used by any routes!This trunk will not be able to be used for outbound calls until a route is setup that uses it. Click on Outbound Routes to setup routing."
So, I added all trunks to the default outbond route called “0 9_outside” and the warning gone.
But no trunks in the Panel…
The ztcfg shows:

Channel 11: FXS Kewlstart (Default) (Slaves: 11)
Channel 12: FXS Kewlstart (Default) (Slaves: 12)
12 channels to configure.
So, the channels are “to configure” and not “configured”…
Could someone point me what am I missing ?
