I am new to asterisk but not to the IT industry. I installed Asterisk and I having a number of issues. Maybe they are related so I will list them here.
- Port 5060 is NOT open - when I testing using nmap I get the following
sudo nmap -p 5060 -sU -P0 192.168.1.185
Nmap scan report for 192.168.1.185
Host is up (0.011s latency).
PORT STATE SERVICE
5060/udp closed sip
MAC Address: 00:15:C5:5E:EE:D8 (Dell)
My router has port 5060 open and it passes the nmap quere I just cannot communicate to my server running Asterisk.
- I configured the asterisk.conf so that it runs as asteriskpbx and I configured module.conf to show all modules.
For some reason there are NO modules being displayed.
I am using the book Asterisk - The definitive guide (4th edition) to help me with the install. The book assumes everything is working well. … Which of course it is not.
Here is my module.conf
- I cannot open asterisk with asterisk -r. I always get the following error.
sudo asterisk - r
Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)
Maybe I should just reinstall Asterisk. Any idea how I can remove and install asterisk ?
