    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?

    service httpd status
    it should show if httpd is running. If not try
    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.

    #Next step not needed for KDE. See
    wget  && 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
    #goto 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

    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 =>
    ;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.
