For the love of God. Please. I need an ISO without esoteric network configuration and command line. I like GUIS. In search of an ISO that has a GUI for Linux, and a full install of Asterisk. Please help. Thanks all.
If you want to avoid getting hands dirty in the under-workings of Linux, Switchvox might be your speed more than Asterisk.
As someone who prefers cli and conf file, hate to tell you, but ok… https://www.freepbx.org/
I already tried that sir. It is not complete with a GUI. I mean an ISO with a complete Linux GUI, and Asterisk FUI all ready to work. I can do CLI, but I am older now, and just prefer a complete solution ready to configure with a GUI. I REALLY appreciate your help sir!
Generally you do not want a GUI on a machine that is running a real time PABX, as X Windows can be resource hungry.
If after configuration there are no X-Windows sessions running, would that matter?
I would like the full GUI, mainly to learn. I am running Mizu-Voip server under Windows, and am unhappy with it. You can check out what I have going so far at:
Please, if you could guide me a little I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
You would need to install the OS (CentOS for FreePBX) and then install FreePBX on top of that. https://wiki.freepbx.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=1048598 looks like it says how to do the second part, but it may well assume quite a bit of familiarity with command line use of Linux.
Appreciate the reply. I can use CLI. Must it be CentOS? I like Ubuntu. Funny enough, asterisk is nowhere to be found on the Ubuntu software application. Anyway, I’ll give that a shot. Thanks!
The FreePBX ISOs are based on CentOS. You can use other distributions, but you may find that support is more difficult to obtain, or you have to do a more first principles installation.
