I am running 32 Bit 1.5 Stable.

Is it possible for me to change the setting of the featuredigittimeout via the GUI?

(This is probably obvious to the rest of you... my apologies...)

If not, what is the Recommended Practice? i.e. Physically go to the console and type in root / and my password, and then just do normal linux commands at that point to create the file?

Can I get into a command line interface remotely?

Thanks!

Hi robclay, welcome to the Elastix Forum

You should edit the file features_general_custom.conf, You can do this by using a linux shell or by going to:
PBX -> Tools -> File editor

Most of the tasks your are going to do should be from the web interface. There might be times when doing so is not possible from the web interface, then you should edit files. Most files can be edited throw the web interface, and all can be edited from the linux prompt.

Yes you can get a secure command line using ssh. If you use windows google for putty and stablish and ssh conection to the server. If your use linux open a command line and type: ssh root@server-ip

Best Regards,

Rafael

Perfect! Thanks.

(As an aside - for me to learn syntax...
I just added into features_general_custom.conf

featuredigittimeout = 2000;

Should it have been

featuredigittimeout = 2000

?

Thanks,
Robclay

That's where I got that command from, and the ambiguity... LOL... I guess I am doomed!

:)

Seriously - I have had it open since Saturday... but I must miss some things in the book.

Thanks for the help!
