    Hi All,

    I am from Malaysia, i am using a E1 line here with Elastix 1.3 stable.
    I had just installed a Sangoma A101D card into my server, although in the WebGui it's mentioned as detected and active but I am still having problem calling out so may i know if i need to do any configurations on the zaptel.conf or zapata.conf?

    Help is appreciated.

    Well, you need to create/modify Trunks and Outbound Routes, tell us more about what you have done so far and give some of the CLI error messages and config of the Trunks and Outbound Routes...

    What you need to do is to configure the sangoma card.

    Elastix 1.3 does the first 3 steps

    At the command prompt # run "setup-sangoma" command.

    Set it up for E1, how many channels, timing, Most of the time PRI CPE will work. timing show be normal/slave.

    What you have to do is to find out what protocol the control channel of the e1 is using for signaling.

    I was having trouble wiht the control channel signaling with a Cisco router. This is what sangoma sent to me and it worked.

    Now to fix this just simply edit /etc/zaptel.conf and change every line that says "dchan=" to "hardhdlc". After this is done stop asterisk run "ztcfg -vv" and then start Asterisk up.

    If you get some sort of ztdummy error when you start you need to edit the zaptel.conf file and take out the line for ztdummy. Then you have to change the channel on the A101d card.

    This is what the zaptel.conf file looks like in the working system with A102D card.

    # Autogenerated by /usr/sbin/genzaptelconf -- do not hand edit
    # Zaptel Configuration File
    # This file is parsed by the Zaptel Configurator, ztcfg

    # It must be in the module loading order

    # Span 1: WPT1/0 "wanpipe1 card 0"
    # termtype: te

    # Span 2: WPT1/1 "wanpipe2 card 1"
    # termtype: te

    # Global data

    loadzone = us
    defaultzone = us

    Hope this helps!
