echo calls

Hi, Complete Asterisk noob here,

I just have a few general questions I need to ask before I start
installing it:

If I want to setup Asterisk simply to respond to echo calls (SIP calls
from a softphone only), do I need to install AsteriskNow as well, or can
I simply configure dialplan to do that?

Thanks,
Ali

  • ‘echo calls’ doesn’t mean anything to me. What does it mean to you?

    AsteriskNow = Linux + Asterisk + [FreePBX | AsteriskGUI].

    Whether you choose a GUI interface or not, Asterisk still executes a
    dialplan which you can see by entering ‘dialplan show’ at the CLI prompt.

  • I think you refer to the echo test that comes with the default
    extensions.conf file. Within the regular installation of asterisk on the
    extensions.conf file you will have an echo test extension. I don’t think you
    need asterisk now for that.
