Before too many of you laugh, yes I am a Windows user that has turned to Linux to run Asterisk for a project.
I have what is probably the simplest question, but I am not finding an answer anywhere.
I am running Fedora 11, Asterisk 1.6. I installed Asterisk using “yum install asterisk” so i do not have the source.
I am trying to get Asterisk to automatically start when the computer is reboot. I have found several sites talking about using the source and making it work, I found a few sites talking about using the rc.local to get it to work.
I put the entries into the rc.Local (/usr/sbin/asterisk) and it does start Asterisk on reboot, and asterisk does work for local extensions like this. BUT asterisk does not seem to be able to register the SIP provider. It gets a 404 error, almost like it is loading before the nic drivers are loaded.
Here’s the kicker, if I go into the cli for asterisk and type restart now, asterisk kicks me out to the command line, then I go asterisk -r again and now the SIP provider works, and everything is blissful until the next reboot.
I know it’s all me, but could someone PLEASE give me step by step instructions for fixing this??? I am using strictly sip for all phones and extensions
