I’m a college student and will be taking up some classes in Voice over IP soon. I am a very hands on person, and like to mess around with things before I take my classes.
I have managed to grab myself 2 Cisco IP phones off of eBay for a great price, however the power supplies aren’t in yet as the phones I purchased were driven by PoE.
Anyways, I managed to setup my Google Voice number with Asterisk (FreePBX), and calling in works perfectly, every time. It took a bit to get Google Voice to play nicely, but I managed to get it.
Anyways, I’m stuck at the point where I need to get extensions configured. I’ve been using X-Lite 4 on my computers to simulate the VoIP phones in a SIP connection. I’m unable to call one extension from the other and have it go through. I’m relatively new to VoIP, so I may just be missing something stupid.
When I call my Google Voice number, I currently have it set to forward to an extension (2000), it goes directly to voicemail. Any ideas why it goes directly to VM instead of ringing?
However, if I use the soft phone with extension 2000 to dial out, it works perfectly to my cell phone.
Any help will be appreciated.
I’m using Asterisk v. 126.96.36.199 with FreePBX.
Sorry in advance for any stupid questions.
