New Install- No Console

I have successfully created the AsteriskNow install CD and installed the program. However, after reboot, the console menu does not appear and there is no interface- I only get the login where I enter the ID of ‘root’ and my password. I successfully log on, but only get to a command prompt. I can successfully ping various sites, so I know I am connected. Can someone please tell me what I need to do next? Thanks.

Now you need to go to another computer and point its web browser to the IP address of your asterisk box.

were u able to log in from another machine by accessing through web interface…! pls let me know.

Thanks & Regards,


i have the same problem (problem: no console or Asterisk GUI) and i cannot connect via Firefox on another computer. When i ping the same address on both computers it works fine.

any advice?
