Good old Dubai hey…not much VoIP passes through there I hear…I’ve got a mate working at Dou Telecom.
Getting the GUI to work again should be do-able with some forum help.
Do you know which version of GUI you had (freePBX, asterisk GUI, Druid)?
Which version of linux/asterisk?
To find out which version of linux do these two things:
/etc/issue contains the information on which distribution of linux you have.
uname -a gives the actual kernel version you are running. Both are handy to know.
If you don’t know what those two lines even look like, read below for some basic linux/asterisk stuff.
Anyway, what is your extent of linux knowledge?
root = Administrator
ifconfig = ipconfig
route -n = ??
cd = cd
Can you log in and get to the asterisk CLI (command line interface)? If you can do that, and change directory to /etc/asterisk (which is similar to C:\etc\asterisk if that were to exist). Same dos commands: cd /etc/asterisk
Private Message me if you want to arrange for me to SSH in and look around.
If you can log in as root, and get to the command prompt ‘#’ try to get to asterisk.
Welcome to linux!
once you do asterisk -r, the command prompt will change to the asterisk CLI.
and you will return to the linux prompt #.
From asterisk CLI you can try these commands with no bad effects.
CLI>sip show peers
CLI>iax2 show peers
CLI>core show version
