    Hi king.

    Have you got this information before the prompt:

    Else, when you are login root, make the following command:

    >ifconfig -a/

    And see if you have the good ip address.

    Look if you have a firewall.

    King,

    The reason being that you are getting this message is that the command is not supposed to be run on the actual Elastix system (machine), which is what you are doing (typing the command at the Linux prompt). The Elastix box has no browser client built in.

    Now that you have an Elastix system running, you go to a Windows or Mac workstation and type the command in a Firefox or Internet Explorer browser (Firefox preferred) such as

    http://yourElastixboxIPAddress (e.g. http://192.168.0.100 - example only).

    This will then bring up the Elastix GUI.

    YourElastixIPAddress is the one that you get when you first login as root on the Elastix box. Be aware if you change addresses, sometimes that this address is incorrect or not stated. If this is the case, type
    ifconfig after you have logged in as root, and it should show the ip address for Eth0 (assuming that you have one network card in the system)

    Hope this helps

    Bob

    Don't forget about Elastix without tears a great book to get you started with Elastix.

    And of course GNU/Linux or any BSD variant. Haven't use Windows for 5 years and almost no Mac I had to said that ;).

    Regards,

    Rafael

    Good point Rafael.

    P.S. I second Rafael's suggestion of using Elastix Without Tears, its a great guide!!!
