I first of all want to say thank you for the warm welcome. This is my second post on this forum for my new phone system project. (I appreciate your patience LOL)
I’m in the process of setting up an IVR with FREEPBX, all of this on a POTS line. I already have designed the IVR map with the prompts & responses the caller will hear. I recently acquired the Grandstream HT813 Gateway to be able to set it up. I have browsed the forum / google looking at previous problems & solutions provided, & I have learned plenty of topics and terms regarding the setup process, however even after following literal step by step on the other threads, I have not yet been succesfull in having Freepbx recognize my gateway, hence its not picking up any calls. On a side note, I have FreePBX running in a Linux environment on a virtual machine installed on a windows desktop PC (which will be considered like a dedicated server). I have successfully configured all the network ports on such Virtual Machine so all the connections made are also transmitted to it.
I have the following settings:
FREEPBX IP: 192.168.1.131
Binding port: 5160
HT813 IP: 192.168.2.1
POTS Number (for reference only): 111-222-3333
Chan_SIP Trunk settings for outgoing:
Ring on FXS: Off
FXS Account NOT Active
FXO Account tab:
I believe I added all the info needed.
I greatly appreciate the help in advanced!
