Hello all, well this is my very first time with asterisk and every related topic, I will try to explain my scenario and will appreciate all the support you could give.
In the begining I was implementing Openfire server solution with Spark-IM client for internal communication and file transfer over a 2008 server PDC with DNS and DHCP servers, later on I´ve configured the VPN PPTP to access all the network resources from anywhere, so that i could connect my cellphone or laptop via VPN and use the spark or access my data etcs…
Everything was running OK till the moment my Boss asked me to implement a VideoConference/voicechat but takind advantage of the plataform we have without spending money, so that I started to look for opensource software and the first thing I thoug was… IM DONE… I JUST NEED TO FIND A JABBER CLIENT WITH VIDEO SUPPORT AND IM DONE!!.. sadly i could not find ANY of them able to use my openfire resource and work ok.
Later I was looking on openfire solutions then I´ve found this RED5 plugin for SPARK but it works if the openfire server is INTEGRATED with the ASTERISK-IM plugin so that the SPARK will be able to use the SIP phone pluggins, at that point i was thinking that i just needed to simple configure the ASTERISK-IM plugin and i was DONE!!!.. but that was a mistake… at the end i figured that i need a ASTERISK server able to connect to mi openfire server trough ASTERISK-IM plugin with my asterisk server.
So, I´ve downloaded the ASTERISKNOW.ISO. burned the cd, installed it in a small machine (P4 2.8Ghz with 1.5 Gb ram and 80 Gb Hard Drive), I am able to acces the server via web browser (FireForx 3.6) without changing anything and seems like its all ok, but then I go to my openfire server, and try to add the asterisk server and nothing happens… the ASTERISK-IM pluggin ask me for my servername(private name), the asterisk server IP address(wich i saw typing ifconfig in the asterisk machine), the access port as far as I know is the 5038 the user and the password that im guessing is the user for the asterisk server root and password XXXXXXX but I tried also with the user wich i log via web Browser and is not connecting.
Ok, so thats the whole picture, I hope someone will be able to help me configure correctly the asterisk server to do what i want to do (explained earlier), or maybe another solution to get my videoconference server implemented localy(intranet) with opensource solutions…
Thank you in advance… and sorry for my english, im from Venezuela South America (native language Spanish).
