I am very new to Asterisk, but i have been working in comms since i learned to walk (almost)
I have installed Asterisk 1.3(using asterisk@home) on VMware workstation 5. I also have a Windows host on the same virtual network, with Xlite softphone installed. There is no associated Hardware, I wanted it all to be VOIP.
My end goal is to set this up to communicate via H323 to a Voice Message platform.
I seem to be communicating with Asterisk, as i get NU for invalid numbers, busy etc. However, i don’t get any speech path. Firstly i tried setting up a recording in digital receptionist. I dial *77, but get no prompts, so i just speak for 30 secs & hang up. I then dial *99 to playback, but nothing happens, although both calls show as connected.
Next i tried setting up a test music on hold destination. Ext 6601 was unconfigured, & if dialed showed as invalid.
In zapdata.conf i have this entry:
In musiconhold.conf i have this entry:
default => quietmp3:/var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3
I then configured the following in the Ext-test secion of extensions.conf:
exten => 6601,1,answer
exten => 6601,2,waitmusiconhold(30)
now when i dial 6601, i get an answer confirmation & 30 seconds later it clears down. All i hear though, is silence…
I looked in the logfile & it looks like the calls operate correctly & even shows MoH playing, but i hear nothing.
I hope someone can help me
