I’m completely new at Asterisk so I’ve been going through through the 2nd edition of “Asterisk: The Future of Telephony” to try and teach myself how to set up a system. It seems that it onlyi covers version 1.4. The problem is that I’ve installed version 1.6 and have followed the instructions in that book to a tee only find that it is out of date. Among other things, it has no mention of Dahdi superseding zaptel. I’m at a point where I don’t even know what config files I need to be using, my sip phones (soft and hard) can’t call one another and I’m getting errors loading the chan_dahdi.so module.
Am I better off burning this to the ground and rebuilding it to v1.4 or is there some good documentation to help me out with v1.6? I’m at a complete impass.
