I am currently trying out the asterisk@home (version 1) release of Asterisk, and I want to configure it as follows:
Calls from regular telephony network (PSTN) come in through my VoIP provider over SIP and outgoing calls to the PSTN should be routed through the ViOP provider onto the PSTN network. I thus have no direct PSTN connection, but only a SIP connection.
Incomming calls work fine. No problems with this.
I have found numerous documents that desribe how to dial out to PSTN numbers via the VoIP provider, but none of them work for me, or better yet, I haven’t been able to get them up and running, most likely as I don’t really know where to start.
Currently, I continuosly get the error that it cannot create a ZAP channel (which is true as I do not use this and have not set this up; there is only one trunk defined, which is ZAP). I can see which macro gets fired upon dial out, but I do not see where I can set the second trunk. I tried to create the trunk through AMP, but that messed up my install, so I had to reinstall. So can someone please help me out and tell me (high level) what to do to get this working.
So any help is appreciated
PS! Oh, I’m quite new at asterisk, but I guess that’s pretty clear.
