I installed Asterisk several weeks ago and all was well. I got tired of changing all the configuration files so I installed the GUI and got things successfully configured once again and all was well. I have both SIP extensions and a TDM400P with 2 FXO and 2 FXS channels.
Ready to go live with the configuration, I needed to make one change and that was to separate the two analog ports into two separate providers. So I edited the provider list and added another provider. I then reworked the incoming line configuration so that each line had its own rules. However, in the provider list I now had a multiple repeating lines in the drop down. Every time I removed and then added in a provider, it showed up multiple times in the list.
The only other thing that changed was I had to reboot the machine because of a power outage (may or may not be relevant). So, here are the questions:
Running Asterisk 1.4.11
Is there a way to test the zaptel driver and see that it is properly loaded? /sbin/ztcfg -vv shows that two channels are configured but is there a way to have the channels indicate they are receiving ringing signals?
I have seen several references to zap show channels in the CLI. But when I start asterisk with -r switch to see the CLI and enter ‘zap show channels’ I get and error saying “No such command”. Should that command work?
Do I need to load zaptel drivers manually or will they automatically load when I start Asterisk?
Where do I start the diagnostics? When I connect a phone to the lines connected to the FXO ports, the phone does ring so I know the lines are “live”.
I can’t figure out what could have happened to the configuration since I had the lines answering before making the change and rebooting the machine. Any suggestions?
