In this article, we will show you how to configure AsteriskNOW, FreePBX, VoIP devices, and a voicemail script. We will also walk you through how to configure your AsteriskNOW phone number. Hopefully, this article will be able to help you get up and running quickly!
Configuration of AsteriskNOW
The first step in the Configuration of AsteriskNOW is to install the system software. You can then install the necessary tools for debugging and development. Select the Express installation option if you have a basic knowledge of English and do not have to worry about finer details. The Expert installation option allows you to specify more configuration parameters. It is a good choice if you are interested in fine-tuning Asterisk’s configuration.
AsteriskNOW is a free and open source software appliance that comes with Asterisk, the Asterisk GUI, and other necessary software. The Asterisk GUI makes configuration of the Asterisk system simple, convenient, and straightforward. The GUI comes with built-in support for HTTPS and ODBC. The installation process can be completed in a matter of 30 minutes. AsteriskNOW is supported by Digium and its certification programs.
Configuration of FreePBX
AsteriskNOW is a GUI for FreePBX. It is similar to the Asterisk software. You must have root privileges to install the software. The next step is to reboot the system. The installation may take 20-30 minutes. Then, install the additional packages. You will need the root password to login as root. The FreePBX GUI will ask you to enter a root password.
Once you’ve installed FreePBX, configure it to use the Asterisk server. The asterisk server must be registered with a domain name. In addition, you will need to enter a username and password in the FreePBX Administration. The Chan SIP device must be configured with an internal port. It should be connected to a port of 5060. The asterisk server will use the port for internal and public calls.
The Asterisk community is an excellent resource for help with FreePBX. If you’ve got any questions, you can visit the PBX in a Flash forum and ask for help from other users. As always, make sure to log out and relog in at the Linux command line for the latest updates. Once you’re done, you can access the GUI with your favorite web browser. Simply type in the IP address and click ‘Edit’.
Configuration of VoIP devices
When you configure your VoIP devices, the first step is to configure the phone’s settings. SIP phones must be configured correctly. The default port and host are “unspecified” for SIP devices. If these are not set, you must obtain the SIP firmware from the phone’s distributor. Otherwise, you can open the Asterisk config panel using Google Chrome. For more information, see “Configuring VoIP devices with Asterisknow”.
VoIP devices are capable of supporting many different protocols. When you configure a phone that supports a specific protocol, an application image will download. This does not mean that you have to reformat your phone; it will only force it to accept config files. A C7960 is a VoIP device that has made its mark in the industry. It’s a high-end SIP phone that has a lot of bells and whistles. Unfortunately, the C7960 is also out of date and quite pricey.
Configuration of voicemail script
There are two important settings to consider when configuring a voicemail script for Asterisk. First, the internal context must be defined. This setting determines whether or not the voice announcement should read “Call from extension…” instead of “Call from extension 12345678.” You should only use internal contexts if your Asterisk version supports advanced voicemail features. If the internal context is not defined, the default value is empty.
Changing the envelope will make Asterisk play the message envelope before the voicemail. The envelope can affect the advanced voicemail menu. It can take either a positive or negative value. This setting is available only in the CVS version of Asterisk dated 5/19/04. Lastly, you can change the externnotify parameter to allow an external program to run after a voicemail message is left.
