Help with installation/upgrading Freepbx

SIP Trunk configuration setup between two PBX's

cbrooks's picture

runnning the latest freepbx distro and need a working SIP trunk configuration between two PBX's running the same distro. IAX2 is experiencing some issues and would like to see how a SIP trunk would perform. there are no firewalls on NAT required to reach each other. I can get the SIP trunk to show online but get the "all cirucits are busy" I'm missing


WIFI Phones

I am looking to start using WIFI phones with FreePBX.

Are there some suggestions for reasonably priced phones that support most features like MWI, conference, multiple users, distintive user ring.

I also would like to use my IPhone as a WIFI SIP phone. Any suggestions for the client? Acrobits?




dahdi vs zap device issue

jshilliday's picture

New install, FreePBX on Asterisk, Centos 5.6. I have a 24 port Digium AEX 2400 analog card, and when I create a ZAP device, it works, the extension can make and receive calls (although *65 comes up blank on the device, so something is wrong in the database somewhere). If I try to create a Dahdi device, the "channel" dropdown is empty; it seems not to be recognizing the analog card.
Amportal.conf is set to "device and user" because we do hotdesking. Any thoughts appreciated on how I can get the dahdi module working, thanks.



So why no full install iso for the FreePBX Distro?

Just wondering. The net install took around 2.5 hours on my 22/5 connection. It's a bit of a bugger to have to wait that long every time I want to reinstall. Imaging and VM cloning have pretty much saved me this headache. But, I still am testing it out in multiple configurations and it would be nice to have a full iso to install from.


our freepbx server is being hacked

During the past few days, I've been seeing that somebody has been able to hijack one of our extensions, added dial patterns, and tried to dial several numbers in Israel. Since our system which is a freepbx has been hacked, I changed the password for the extensions and the default asterisk password. We have set up our asterisk server so that no one can do a remote console.

Our server is outside of the firewall. I was wondering how the hacker can penetrate our freepbx server.

I was thinking of changing the MySQL password also.


Running yum update on lastet FreePBX distro

alan's picture

I can not find any information regarding running yum update on a fresh install of the latest FreePBX distro. Is it advisable to do yum update at all or just use the module admin of FreePBX to do upgrades? What is the recommendation for doing OS level updates if one plans on using the distro for installing a new system.

Disclaimer: I am new to FreePBX and usually build my own systems from source but the FreePBX GUI is really nice and I plan on using it for all my future deployments.
