I cannot get streaming MOH to work at all.
Please somebody can you give me a detailed step by step instruction on how to set this thing up.

I cannot seem to get my head around this thing.


Newbie: SIP Trunking to Tandberg VCS Control

Shampoo Monkey's picture

Hey Everybody,

I am going to start off by saying, I am a complete noob when in comes to this technology. A few months ago I got put in charge of a new project. Part of the project is integration of a phone system with a video conferencing system. I have the video conferencing system up and running and just started on the phone system. To save money, we have decided to go with an asterisk server and a SIP Trunk for our phone system. I used AsteriskNow 1.7.0 32bit.


CentOS 5
Asterisk 1.6

Upgrade to freepbx 2.8

rvlewis's picture

Before I upgraded to FreePBX 2,8 an analog trunk hooked to a Digium card would ring in, but Asterisk did not answer the trunk unless the destination extension answered the phone, this allowed the voice mail on the analog trunk to answer instead of the asterisk voice mail, which was the way I wanted it on this trunk. Since the upgrade Asterisk picks up on the first ring. How do I change this back to not answering the trunk?


Sip Registration Intermittent

Build - FREEPBX, with Asterisk (Ver.

Im finding my sip registration is very intermitant with my VOIPFONE Trunk

If I save the VOIPFONE Trunk this resolves the problem, but only for a short while, after this save, using the sip show registry command i can see that the registration is happening after 45 seconds

pbx*CLI> sip show registry

Hi all Smile

Apologies in advance for dumb noob questions and lack of info.. I'm totally new to the linux/asterisk/freepbx world.

I have an old dell pc (256mb RAM, 20gb HDD, P3 processor) on which I have installed the latest version of asteriskNOW 32 bit and freePBX

I want to use this as a home & small business PBX with one incoming legacy POTS line and potentially 2 or more SIP trunks in the future.

My first task was to get the system up and running with the existing POTS line.. and I seem to be failing dismally !! Sad

Upgrading from core to clears all trunk details

Dutchsat's picture

It is strange, after upgrading freepbx core to all the trunk details are lost, the trunks are still listed in the trunks list but all the details like the peer details and register strings are empty.

How can I upgrade without losing these details or how can I restore these details after upgrading without having to retype these manually.

I have restored the last backup now, the details are now visible again, but it says that the core is now active.

I am using the latest distro from PBXinaflash, asterisk 1.4.


FreePBX not updating .conf files

tdooher11's picture

I am currently running Asterisk This is a new install. When I make updates via the FreePBX web interface I do not see them reflected in any of the .conf files. My questions are as follows:

1) When I make a change in the FreePBX web interface (adding an extension for example) I would expect this change to show up in extensions_additional.conf. Is this a correct assumption?

2) If so, what are possible causes for this file not to be updating?

Thanks in advance.
