I am sure most of you are not a novice as I am. I am fairly new to the world of networking. 2 years. Even more "newer" to the world of VoiP.
I have been tasked by my employer to set up a new voip network for my company, replacing the existing one. We currently use a Vega50 ISDN/DSL gateway and a linux sipexchange. They now want this set up to be moved over to freePBX (asterix) but to be still using this vega50 gateway.
If you guys don't mind I intend to ask some basic questions which most of you probably know like the back of your hand! But I've been forever searching online but everything hasn't clicked into place yet!
So here goes...
Reading on some forums The impression I got is that I first need to set up the Trunk links and from my understanding these are the actually phone lines that come in from our telephone provider to the vega gateway? When adding a trunk in free PBX should I be selecting SIP trunk or Custom trunk for this? I believe it should be custom trunk because the freePBX server would be going directly to the vega50. Correct? If so, what is a custom dial string that it is asking me to enter?
many thanks. Looking forward to your response.
