I thought I had an Asterisk installation up and running on a cloud server until today. The problem seems to be that the Dial() Application is missing entirely from the installation. I am working with a SIP-only setup and can connect to Asterisk with XLite by dialing an extension (and hearing “Hello World” or whatever) just fine (NAT isn’t an issue, apparently), but wanted to connect two SIP softphones together using Dial(). Both instances of XLite can dial in to listen to the Hello World and tt-weasels message.
- The obvious one is why wasn’t Dial() installed to begin with?
- Is there a way to install just the Dial application? I spent the morning googling through the various knowledge bases but didn’t come up with anything promising.
- If (2) is not possible, should I just wipe and reinstall?
- Am I totally missing the essence of what’s going on here (or did I miss something obvious)?
Thanks in advance, let me know if I forgot something important.
