I am utterly frustrated!
It’s clear that asterisk is powerful. Yet do the creators of asterisk make it rough to configure things just to get people to sign up for support, and pay to take classes?
I am so tired of googling to find out answers to things, some apply and most others are for outdated versions which dont work.
Here are the 2 most ridiculous and time wasting things I have seen so far.
There is a GUI, and its disabled by default! How nuts is that. First I had to look up how to enable it, parse through the google crap that didn’t work, and peice together bits from one place to another to get it working, only then to find out it says access denied.
Seriously, what a waste of time! Just enable it it be default!!! Every router on the planet comes out of the box with a default user/ password. It would be much better to enable it by default and have users open a config file to disable it. That is more user friendly. When you learning something new, its best to default to things on than things off.
Second, you have many config files. Are we back in the dos days? Who wants to take the time to open them, find the area your looking for, change it and save it. You can do everything far faster with a GUI! No one, no matter how fast they can type can beat the speed of setting something up in a GUI, so lets get modern here.
