Asterisk 1.4 gui Login Problem

Okay followed the install instructions for Asterisk 1.4 and the Asterisk 1.4 GUI on a remote server configured as Fedeora Core 4.

Followed instructions at: … terisk+gui

Setup the following conf files:


enabled = yes
webenabled = yes
secret = xxxx
read = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user,config
write = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user,config

    "where xxxx is my pass"

I started Asterisk with:
/usr/sbin/asterisk -vvvvvvvvvvvvvvc

Then opened Firefox with:

Asterisk? HTTP Status
Prefix /asterisk
Bind Address
Bind Port 8088

Seems like things are okay.

But when I try:
my.ip.address:8088/asterisk/stat … basic.html

I get the login screen no problem. Enter “admin” and “xxxx” for my pass.

GUI looks like it’s going to let me in for a second, but WHAM!, it flashes “connected” but then goes to a fairly blank page where I get the following:

Not Found

Nothing to see here. Move along.
Asterisk Server

And when I try:

I get the following:
Access Denied

Sorry, I cannot let you do that, Dave.
Asterisk Server

A look at CLI which shows:
HTTP Manager ‘admin’ logged on from my.ip.address

So what’s up here?

My guess is this is a linux security issue.

Anyone have ideas what to try?

Many thanks for the replies
