This is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought it would.
Running under Fedora 11. Asterisk installed OK and can be used in command-line mode. The service appears to be running. I tried (and tried and tried) to get the Asterisk GUI going to no avail. Everything seems to have installed OK, but it’s just never there when I browse to it. Have (for now anyway) given up on the GUI, my setup is so simple it shouldn’t really be an issue. I’ve spent two days wading through documentation, how-to guides and instructions and I still don’t seem to be connecting the dots.
So now I’m asking for help.
I have a SipGate account, tested and working with a soft-phone. I want Asterisk to take over the management of that line for me, then pass through any incoming calls to a Nortel phone - unfortunately one of the UNIStim-only ones.
I don’t need to make outgoing calls via the system yet.
In the future I’ll look at adding more phones, to set up a simple home exchange, but right now I just want to get this working!
How hard can this really be? Where did I miss the one proper “Asterisk for Dummies” single-page how-to that will lead the way?
