I’ve downloaded Asterisk to an AWS EC2 instance and I’m wondering what additional steps need to be taken to connect a softphone to it. I know the IP address of the instance but when I use this in the softphone account it will not connect. Could anyone point me in the right direction?
You need open SIP/TLS and RTP ports at AWS console.
There are a bunch of items,
Assuming your using an elastic IP on the host,
- you likely will have to configure to support NAT if your going over the public internet as well. NAT can play hell with stuff.
- Make sure to setup The Security group for you ec2 instance would need to have rules for the traffic you want to pass.
- To use TLS you will need to have a certificate. Lots have used the lets encrypt ones, you may have to have the cert in downloaded to you software app if you do a verify_client option as well. depending on the certs you use.
