    Hi all.
    I am installing an elastix server (V1.6-12) at our school as our existing school`s commander pbx system is full and getting very old.
    All internal extensions/ivr`s etc are working fine.
    Now for the outside world!
    1. I have a TDM410 card with 2 FXO PSTN lines
    "http://www.rwb.com.au/elastixpics/pic1_card.jpg is a snapsot of the card
    I have started by detecting the card with the existing phone line into the PSTN
    line 1 as per the above image link.

    2. Elastix seems to find it but it is not really configured properly:
    http://www.rwb.com.au/elastixpics/pic2_ ... detect.jpg is what elastix finds in its hardware detection.
    (The status is red shouldn`t it be green?)

    3. I`ve configured a zap trunk with zap id=1 ( Elastix pic http://www.rwb.com.au/elastixpics/pic3_trunk.jpg)

    4. I then configure an outbound route: ( Elastix pic http://www.rwb.com.au/elastixpics/pic4_ ... droute.jpg)

    5. In the doc elastix_without_tears.pdf it says on pg 61/287 that I should
    "...define the DID of the channel through the ZAP Channel DID option in freePBX.."
    So I do this. ( Elastix pic <

    in dahdi-channels.conf make sure that
    context= from-pstn
    is changed to
    context= from-zaptel

    Hi,
    I`ve edited the dahdi-channels.conf file.
    Now the channels look ok:
    elastix*CLI> dahdi show channels
    Chan Extension Context Language MOH Interpret
    pseudo default default
    1 from-zaptel default
    2 from-zaptel default
    elastix*CLI>

    Still it doesn't allow me to make an outside call. Sam thing: "all circuits are busy now please try your call again later"

    The elastix hardware detection still has it in red: http://www.rwb.com.au/elastixpics/pic2_ ... detect.jpg

    HERE: http://web1.duval-h.schools.nsw.edu.au/cli_busynow.txt is the asterisk cli as it runs through eventually ending again with "all circuits are busy now please try your call again later"

    any ideas?
    thanks
    Sam

    SOLVED!!
    You won't believe it.
    As soon as purchased a new phone cable plugged it in and rebooted ... presto all is Green in hardware detection and I can make outbound calls.
    It looks as though the phone cable I was using has a dodgy connection and worked intermittently.
    So thanks for all your assistance.
    I'm now ventering into inbound calls and restricting who can call mobile/STD numbers etc

    many thanks
    Sam
