Hi all.

New to Elastix and novice to Linux so be gentle.

I installed Elastix on my machine and away we went. I have tested the networking and all is goof. I can ping the box from another and ping another from elastix. However when I try and login to the box either by http or https I get no response. In a shell on the elastix box itself I tried wget localhost and get a response so I figure it must have a firewall or something blocking it. I am used to the firewall stuff using kde or gnome but at a loss in a terminal.

Can anyone suggest a fix?

Try
Code:
service httpd status
it should show if httpd is running. If not try
Code:
service httpd start
It may give some errors to help figure out what is going on if it wont start.



If you need the gui try this.

Code:
#Next step not needed for KDE. See http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2483

wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/nautilus-sendto-0.7-5.fc6.i386.rpm  && rpm -Uvh --nodeps nautilus-sendto-0.7-5.fc6.i386.rpm	



yum grouplist    #Shows list of available groups

# Substitute "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" for "GNOME Desktop Environment" if you prefer.  #Not tested

yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"

yum install firefox

startx

#goto 127.0.0.1 in firefox. Some pages require flash plugin. Click manual install and install the yum repo version.

yum install flash-plugin   #logoff x

Thanks heaps. However I ended up with a few more problems and in the process saw a screen flash past that showed me it has a SETUP screen so typing setup, I could play with the firewall.

So reinstalled and this time SETUP was used, configured firewall and away we went.


Now on another note, I use Mytel here in Australia where I have a IAX account. I have previously used it with trixbox and it works.

In Mytel help area it has the following


*******************************quote****************
How to setup a IAX Trunk with Mytel

To configure your IAX account to be used with Asterisk, please enter the following into your 'iax.conf' file.

register => username:password@gw03.mytel.net.au
[******]
type=friend
secret=*******
username=******
host=gw03.mytel.net.au
trunk=yes
context=from-iax
;IAX Username

;IAX Account Password
;IAX Username

Replace username with your Mytel IAX Account Name and password with your Mytel IAX Account Password in the register string. Also, wherever there are ******'s, please replace these with either your Mytel IAX Account Name or Mytel IAX Account Password depending on the comment on that line.

In order to make a call using your newly created Mytel IAX trunk place the following entry in your 'extensions.conf' file, replacing the username with your Mytel IAX Account Name.

exten => _X.,1,Dial(IAX2/username/${EXTEN})
exten => h,1,Hangup


***********************end quote***************


With trixbox I had to edit the extensions conf as in above but is it necesary with elastix?

Also if I do, where do I put it? Do I create a tag like

[this tag]

or do I add it to an existing area?

Off to bed now for a nanna nap so I can go to work for afternoon shifft.

Once again, thanks heaps.
Peter
