I need some help, here’s my situation: I’ve an Asterisk@Home 2.4 server (with Asterisk 1.2.3), and I want use it with an H323 Gatekeeper (provided from an external company) for outgoing calls ONLY - I don’t need to receive calls nor to use H323 phones on my PBX. I know it’s quite an obsolete system, but it’s also quite cheap for me…
Following the instructions found at voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+oh323+channels , I’ve downloaded and compiled the oH323 channel with the related packages: the process seems to have been successful, because the OH323 channel shows up when issuing the command “show channeltypes” at the Asterisk console. Also, every minute or so, I get a “Retrying gatekeeper registration” on the console.
Now, how do I configure my gatekeeper’s IP, port, H323-ID/alias and Caller-ID (it’s just needed, but it’s not a real phone number)? And, expecially, how do I set up a trunk (“custom”, I supose) and its outgoing route, so as to make possible for every extension on my PBX to dial any PSTN or mobile number on the “outside world”?
I’ve read almost every post on this forum about H323, but it seems that h323 support in Asterisk is just used for internal extensions.
Thanks a lot for any help!
