OK, I’m new to both asterisk and to Linux, so I realize I’m running at quite a disadvantage here, but I’m hoping I can ask a question intelligently enough to invite an answer.
I’m running Debian Linux and Asterisk 1.4.10 (I think… how do I check?). I have not installed a GUI on my Linux box; I’m using the bash shell.
I set up the basic dialplan in chapter 5 of Asterisk_TFOT.pdf:
exten => s,1,Answer()
exten => s,2,Playback(hello-world)
exten => s,3,Hangup()
I have no FXS/FXO hardware; just an Ethernet connection.
I’m attempting to call my Asterisk box using a softphone. I don’t know what to dial so I’m dialing firstname.lastname@example.org for various values of ‘something’.
I did not edit zapata.conf. [Edit] I believe this is probably my problem, but I’m not far enough in the tutorial to know how to solve this [/Edit]
context = default
and one ‘friend’ defined.
When I call my server with a softphone, the debug spew from the server says “Cannot find extension context ‘default’” and the client indicates that the server gave a “Not Found” response.
I’d like to place a call and get the hello world reply. I’m not sure if my current problem is server side or client side, or where the error would be on the server.
Can anyone suggest what step I did wrong?
