I am a new user of Asterisk. So i know very little about its usage and operation. But whatever i have understood from the o’reilly book : “AsteriskTM The Future of Telephony”, i can say that people have really done wonderful job.
Ok, let me tell you about my installation :
I am running on Centos 4. with 1 GB Ram and with kernel 2.6.9-55.0.2.EL. My sound card is VIA 8235(DUPLEX).
After reading from tutorial i installed :
on my machine. and then i tried running asterisk using command :
$ asterisk -vvvgc
and i got its prompt. Then i tried “console dial”. Only first time i got the demo sound. But after that if again i do this, it doesn’t give anything.
I do not know whether this is the right way of testing the installation. If anybody can guide me regarding this, his help will be appreciated.
I know i have to read a lot understand a part of this software.
Thanks and Regards,
